Review by Muzikman
4 stars This DVD brings Neal Morse's personal and professional sojourn to complete fruition. His journey is one of a lifetime and although his music is big part of the entire picture, it is only one piece of the equation in the grand scheme of things.

Morse took his "Testimony" album to the masses in 2003 and the complete performance is documented over the course of this two DVD set. He had a fine cast of musicians to back his project and he takes full advantage of all their various talents in a live setting, bringing his life story to light before his appreciative fans.

The audience seemingly becomes one with Neal and his band and not a stone is unturned during this fantastic performance. His brand of progressive Christian rock appeals to a broad base of listeners. It rocks progressively and very tastefully. There is a strong definitive message here; however, the music is what sets the precedence then everything falls in line right behind it. The music is so good it is hard not to like. Morse pours his heart and soul into this performance and you know that it is a genuine thing for him and his band.

Never was there a time where I felt complacent or bored watching this DVD. Morse is a vibrant entertainer and what makes it so enjoyable to view is his incredible energy and enthusiasm for his music and beliefs. He is a gifted vocalist, guitar and keyboard player and never is it more obvious than during this concert. Yes, this certainly is a "Testimony" and in many ways.

5 stars This is Neal post Spock's, forging a path totally different from the really interesting musical ideas he fostered with the band he spent the 90's developing turning them into a Neo-prog force, that has created tremendous art over the years. In 2003, he created a new path that was more personal ... (read more)

5 stars Incredible concert DVD release by Neal Morse showing him and the band at their very best performing the whole Testimony (2001) album and also a couple of non-solo selections. This makes for excellent viewing, in my opinion. Christian lyrics aside, Neal is a musical genious (as are others on here, ... (read more)

5 stars This DVD is a great experience, I ordered a copy and waited 2 weeks for its arrival (This DVD was not released in my country, Argentina), and I can tell you it was well worth the waiting. What we have here is a masterpiece of an album played in its entirety by an amazing group of musicians who pla ... (read more)

5 stars What could we say about this title? First of all, that it's the Testimony album on live, with eight incredible musicians on stage. Neal Morse & Co. offers us a splendid peformance, full of feeling, passion, and thinness. Mr. Morse give away to the audience a emotional and sensitive story of hi ... (read more)

5 stars This is really a great performance. I love it from the first till the last second. I've seen the show in Tilburg. At first we didnt know what we heart.

2 stars What is this??? I love God, but I don't need hear this in a rock show... When I go to a concert of Prog Rock (or another Rock Styles) I want to distract myself, I want to fly in the magic that is music! I don't need a guy crying to me why Jesus is his saviour, or how your life was empty withou ... (read more)
