5 stars 5 stars?More or less

After the slightly disappointing "Lifeline," I was afraid that Neal Morse was losing his divine inspiration.But behold, he gives us " Testimony 2 ", an album that is not very different from anything he's done, but it's definitely a breath of fresh air in his wonderful career, being a strong candidate for one of the best albums of 2011.

In fact to say that this album was not surprised and pleased as much as "One" or "Sola Scriptura ",my favorite albuns of Neal.Disc 1 is good, but falters in some moments.But agree with the reviewers who say the best part is the six-especially "Time Changer" which, with a cameo by Alan Morse, Nick D'Virgilio and Dave Meros (why not call Ryo Okumoto too?) to prepare a vocal a la Gentle Giant and an organ solo to borrow "The Water"(from the debut album by Spock's Beard), is the best song of disc.While listened, I wondered if it would be good to give this album 4 stars.

But then came the second disk and changed my point of view.It is a bonus disc consisting of only three tracks: "Absolute Beginner", "Supernatural" and the monstrous epic "Seeds of God" ,which is one of the best songs ever by Neal - each time I listen, I fall in love more and more of this wonderful song.The songs already composed three tracks are better than anything from the first album (except "Time Changer", of course).

Although far from being the best album of Neal Morse, put to me that this is occupied by "One" and "Sola Scriptura", "2 Testimony" is a strong book and deserves 5 ​​stars
