5 stars The first album for Morse after leaving the band he founded, Spock's Beard, for a more clearly Christian slant, this is a very personal and amazing album, telling the story of his struggle to seek fame and fortune as a musician and getting caught up in the party lifestyle of California rock music.

All the while, Jesus was reaching out to him ("Sleeping Jesus") while he was still feeling the influence of "The Prince of the Power of the Air."

He met his future wife, a devout Christian, and he was moved by the love of Christ found in the small country church near Nashville that she attended.

This is an epic, 2-CD testimony of Neal Morse's conversion, with elements of Kansas, Yes, Genesis, Gentle Giant, Dream Theater, The Beatles, and classical music.

This CD has a special place in my heart, I listened to it a lot while recovering from the aortic dissection that nearly took my life in 2006; it was the soundtrack to my worship of God in sparing my life. I told Neal this at an after-concert meet and greet, and he was visibly moved by my testimony about his "Testimony."
