After the TRUE MASTERPIECE that is "Testimony", I wondered if Neal Morse had still enough inspiration in him to create TRUE MASTERPIECE number 2. I shouldn't have worried....He has. This seems to have more of a 'band' feel to it than "Testimony", with Neal putting his message and story across as passionately as before. The musicianship is if the highest calibre. Each song moves, inspires and excites - demonstrating all aspects of the Progressive Rock Genre: from the simple 'Cradle to the Grave' to the progressive complexities of 'The Creation' via the very heavy 'Author of Confusion' and the rousing 'Reunion'. This is possibly the 'One' album that could budge "Testimony" from my CD player. Brilliant! Finally the Special Edition contains a great rendition of "What is Life", with Phil Keaggy sounding just like George Harrison....Stop reading this...go and buy it!
