There is always a certain scepsis around groups consisting of members from already known/famous bands and sometimes the sum might be a lot less than the individual parts. But not so with this prog supergroup - in fact they have put out a masterpiece. Combining all the best of the individual participants and adding that undefinable factor of magic and good chemistry.

Mike Portnoy is ofc a world class drummer and his interplay with bassist Dave LaRue just downright perfect (they have also played together in the Led Zep tribute Hammer Of The Gods). Neal Morse is a true original - a devoted Christian and a magnificent progrocker both on keys and guitar. Steve Morse has rarely sounded better, he knows how to shred in an intelligent way. While Casey McPherson handles most of the lead vocals.

Is this a new Transatlantic? Well, not really since the emphasis here is more on the songwriting, less on long suitelike compositions. Recalling 80s groups like Mr.Mister, Toto or Trevor Rabin era Yes. And actually almost every song is a winner with memorable hooklines, clever lyrics and definitely hit potential. But at the same time the album is full of elegant musical details, odd metres, strange breaks, magnificent soloes. Everything to satisfy the musos and the tech freaks also.

Quite a music lovers dream and wonderful an album like this is still being made in 2012!

The prospect of a musical project featuring Neal Morse and Mike Portnoy is always intriguing given the quality of their output under the Transatlantic and Yellow Matter Custard brands and Neal's own solo output. Interest piques once Steve Morse and Dave LaRue are added to the mix. Casey MacPherson was the unknown quantity but if he's good enough for Mike P...

If the names in the previous paragraph are familiar with you, you may be concerned whether the band would lean heavily on their prog and jazz-fusion roots. Not so; the eponymous album is marked by song writing in a pop-rock vein evoking Queen, Coldplay and Muse without resorting to slavish emulations of those inspirations. Yes, a few of the songs go beyond the 3 minutes that mark top 40 climbers but the songs never overstay their welcome.

Thanks to the vocal talents of Casey backed up by Neal and Mike the lyrics are delivered with conviction and gusto making it easy to get swept away by the emotions underpinning the tracks themes. Personal favourites are the grin inducing 'Blue Ocean', the hook-laden 'Kayla' and the uplifting 'The Storm'.

A word on the engineering and production of the album: Peter Collins production is exquisite...gelling the tracks together while allowing the instruments to blend and remain distinct. I'd love to see renowned music production magazine Sound on Sound do a behind the scenes analysis of Collins - and the bands'! - work here.

Here's the rub: if you like great songwriting and music that brings genuine joy, what are you waiting for?

Should I write a review and would it be worthy? Well - a review is so arbitary.
Here we have Steve Morse, Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy, Dave LaRue and the rather handy Casey McPherson.
So, maybe, part from Casey - you know these guys!!
This is kind of Prog with "variations" and it is good!
Great production, great musicianship and a fine record.
One of the finest guitarists, one the very best drummers, a great bass player and a superb multi-instrumentalist with a 'new guy' - McPherson, who doesn't let the side down.
Strong, confident lead vocals from McPherson backed up by the best.
Great rock music that dips it's toes into a variety of rock styles whilst maintaining a superb balance.
The songs are full of great 'hooks' and are a joy to listen to, with considerable contrasts - "Kayla" is beautiful. whereas "Shoulda Coulda Woulda" is much more of a thrash out by comparison!
It seems to me as though Neal Morse is generally "back seat" here. For a performer who so often takes the lead, his contribution is much less dominant.
Having said that all these guys pull together on an album that pleases and, in places, throws up a few surprises.
A very fine rock album of the highest calibre; what I have come to expect! As for the expectations of others, I do not know?

Yet another successful collaboration between Neal Morse and Mike Portnoy that has blossomed on great works such as Transatlantic's Bridge across forever and Neal's solo stuff including one and ?. Add in the considerable talents of Steve Morse, Dave Larue and Casey McPherson and you have a mega-talented bunch.

The band had warned people that this album wouldn't be an out and out prog album - and it isn't. It certainly has prog elements, particularly in the closing 12-minute epic, Infinite Fire. But the album is more a blend of melodic rock (touches of AOR) and hints of prog. That may not sound appealing, but the album def works - and the songs speed by in a very appealing manner. A thoroughly enjoyable listening experience.

My personal favourites include the excellent opener Blue ocean which has a very nice bass line and a good blend of vocals. Kayla touches on the AOR style I previously mentioned, yet is a catchy song with a strong vocal and is an album highlight - as is the next one The storm. There is some nice guitar work on Everything changes - we even get some cries of "yeah" from the band who seem to be enjoying themselves. Better than walking away has some lovely, understated guitar work.

A fine album that I have given plenty of spins so far (currently fighting the latest efforts from Anathema and Storm Corrosion for control of my I-pod.)

2012 has already seen some top notch releases and with new stuff due from Echolyn, Rush, Marillion, Panic Room, The Reasoning and especially Big Big Train, the year looks like going from strength to strength. Flying colors have already played their part with this fine album.
