1 stars Without any prior knowledge about neither Neal Morse nor Spock's Beard. Just knowing that this artist was supposed to be one of the relatively new prog stars. I got my hands on Testimony 2. I will do this short, because i dont want to spend too much time on a negative review, but i have been listning to the album 6-7 times, and i still feel nothing, less inspired than if i listen to a few hours of mainstream POP on FM radio. At least that contains a degree of varriation. The lyrics beeing very religius dosent hurt much, but dosent help much either, not very inovative as with everything else on the record. That this is supposed to be a top 2011 release is beyond me, just dont understand !. I hope that he have made much better records and his reputation helps him on this very thin recording.

Honestly im not sure i'll ever listen to it again. If in the mood for something not inovative and very "done before", ill do much better with the new Amos Lee or Decemberists, at least those are rustic in a much better sence of the word.

I will have to give this a 1 stars rating. This is the only CD i have directly got regrets about getting, for a very long time.
