3 stars American multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer and producer from Kalamazoo, Michigan.Jeremy Morris was heavily influenced by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stones at the early stage of his life, while later he came in touch with the more demanding material of Genesis, Yes, Jethro Tull, Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream.In early 80's he found his own Jam Records and released his debut ''Alive'' in 5000 copies, while several albums would follow mostly in Psych/Power Pop style over a decade.In 1993 though Jeremy releases ''Dreams Come True'', an album of strong Progressive and Art Rock content.

Jeremy Morris handles all guitars, bass and keyboards, he is helped by drummer Dave Dietrich and the result is over 70 minutes of instrumental melodic music split in 27(!) tracks with emphasis on the strong guitar work of Jeremy and the atmospheric synth and piano parts.The album is a mix of Melodic Rock and Neo/Electronic Prog tunes, composed with love for these particular styles and delivered under a clear production.Morris' guitar playing shines through the whole album, from his ripping solos to the melodic rhythmic parts, and he supports his favorite instrument with some really cool piano paces and some very strong synthesizer parts, which make his music sound spacey and even symphonic at moments.The closest comparison would be Germans DELTA CYPHEI PROJECT in an all instrumental form, though the later tracks lean towards the Electronic side of Prog with strong SHAMALL hints and a very spacey mood overall, featuring series of deep electronic textures.Among the electric tracks of the album Morris drops a few lovely acoustic themes in the vein of GORDON GILTRAP or MIKE OLDFIELD, which make the album an even more enjoyable listening experience.

The first attempt of Jeremy Morris on producing a proggy effort was damn succesful.Pleasant, spacey and highly melodic guitar-based Progressive Rock with some fascinating themes here and there guarantee a nice listening.Recommended.
