Tim Morse biography
US keyboardist TIM MORSE is a member of Yes tribute band PARALLELS, as well as being the author of two prog-related books, "Yesstories" and "Classic Rock Stories". In 2005 he released his first album, "Transformation", recorded with the help of multi-instrumentalist Mark Dean (who also produced the album) and singer Richie Zeller. This record, which bridges classic and modern prog and includes a 16-minute track called "Apocalyptic Visions", is actually a concept based on the events that can transform a person's life. It has also received a lot of favourable attention from such prog greats as Peter Banks, Patrick Moraz and Bill Bruford.

4 stars Tim Morse is a solo keyboardist known as the member of the Yes cover band Parallels. He is also the author of two prog related books. And before you ask yourself, no, he has no relation with Neal Morse. Faithscience (2012) is the musician's second album. It's the follow up to Transformation (2005) and it was released last year by AEP Records.

Tim spent 2 years writing and recording the album. In fact, Faithscience (2012) started off as a conceptual album about Charles Lindbergh (a pilot that managed to make the first solo crossing over the Atlantic), but in the end Tim decided to write about more topics and the concept drifted away.

Tim Morse's music is based on the traditional Symphonic Prog, but the one born in the 90's with bands like The Flower Kings and Spock's Beard. In fact, his vocals remind a lot Roine Stolt, but they're far from being a copy.

Faithscience (2012) has an impressive and extensive list of guest musicians such as David Ragsdale (violin - Kansas), Jerry Jennings, Mark Dean and Moss Hudson (guitars), Gordon Stizzo (drums), Jim Diaz & Sean McMillin (bass), Timothy Stanley (cello) and many more. The album is a brilliant mix of keyboard driven Prog with lots of amazing guitars moments (especially by Mark Dean) and tracks that make you think and shake your head. It's quite amazing that Tim has been in a cover band for some time but his own music doesn't sound like Yes at all. That's quite a good job of him.

'Descent' and 'Voyager' open the album giving quite a great first impression. 'Closer' then follows and it is one of the most interesting songs, no doubt. 'Window' changes the pace of the album to a little acoustic piece of music, so Tim can follow with 'Numb' with the acoustic feeling and can also add some cello.

The middle of the album presents 'Myth' and 'Found It', the weakest tracks on Faithscience (2012). 'Rome' comes back to the good Tim Morse's sound. To conclude, we have the final trio with the amazing 'The Last Wave', the beautiful acoustic ballad 'Afterworld' and the wonderful final bit of piano and voices of 'The Corners'.

Faithscience (2012) is one of the most interesting albums released last year! It has everything that a good prog fan would like to hear and a bit more. If you don't know Tim Morse yet? it's high time!

3 stars Sometimes I wonder what kind of a career can one have if carrying the same surname with a legendary figure of the same music path.American keyboardist Tim Morse, who has no relationship to the legend of Neal Morse, prooved to have a decent one.A prog enthusiast already with two books on his back ('' "Yesstories" and "Classic Rock Stories"), Tim Morse came in touch with multi-instrumentalist Mark Dean through Magna Carta's Mike Varney and released indepedently his debut ''Transformation'' in 2005 along with lead vocalist Richie Zeller.

A rich and at time pompous Progressive Rock album with tons of changing climates, ''Transformation'' not only prooves that Tim Morse is an excellent musician and composer, but the album will certainly have a great impact to all these searching for releases that have both modern and vintage elements.Influenced by GENESIS, YES and U.K., Morse presents a fresh prog approach with passionate vocals, superb and powerful bass lines by Dean and some incredible keyboard parts, including organs, synths and piano.The tracks show inspirations from SPOCK'S BEARD-like modern Prog, Symphonic Progressive Rock with a few more Fusion-esque keyboard techniques added for good measure, but they all sound extremely tight and well-crafted.Especially keyboard lovers will find this album more than satisfying, as Morse's work is characterized by bombastic organ passages, grandiose pianos and atmospheric synth textures all the way.''Transformation'' is highlighted by the 16-min. ''Apocalyptic visions'', a beautiful composition with variation on themes, alternation between highly technical and more spacey/Electronic parts and nice shifting moods.

Additionally the album unfolds around a concept about a man and his life's transformation through time with strong autobiographical sections.Nice discovery for all fans of modern and well-arranged Progressive Rock with evident references to the 70's.Strongly recommended...3.5 stars.

3 stars This is the second album from Tim, following on from 'Transformation' which came out in 2005. Originally this project started out as a concept album based on the life of Charles Lindbergh, but eventually strayed from that original vision to be more all encompassing. Tim provides all keyboards, many of the guitars and most of the vocals while Mark Dean has also had a massive input into this album as he did with the last. David Ragsdale also makes a return appearance, providing violin where required. Overall this is a very interesting album, with some great musicianship throughout ? comment also needs to be passed regarding the production which is superb and really makes the listener feel that they are in the middle of the band.

The booklet is very basic, but to make up for it the listener can go to the website and uncover information regarding every song from Tim himself which makes it all very personal (and if you haven't purchased the CD yet then it is possible to also play tracks at this page as well). This is a really solid album with lots going for it, but I do feel that there are times when it loses its' way a little, and that is probably because this isn't a group album ? but rather a multi-instrumentalist with additional hired hands. To me this album is at its' finest when Tim allows himself to remove all restraints and provide some blistering keyboard runs and interplay. He has great confidence in his touch and ability, and this really comes through with the delicate piano on album closer "The Corners" which moves through swathes of orchestration to something that is both powerful and poignant.

It is an album that I enjoyed playing, and I am sure that while it is not totally essential many progheads will feel the same and I urge you to check out the website and give it a try.

4 stars Tim Morse is an unknown american musician who release his first solo album in 2005 named Transformation. Well I was very pleasent surprise about this album, this is symphonic prog rock with some killer keybords made by Tim hinself and very well performed pieces. It reminds me of greatest artists of prog like Genesis, Spock's Beard and Yes among others. Complicated arrangements with excellent musicianship, maybe the voice of - Richie Zeller is in some places little flat and without any range, overall is more then ok, even Tim sings on couple of pieces fiting better in the musical context then Zeller, but is just my opinion. All pieces stands as great, not a weak moment here, Tim done some great parts and the album is a real keyboardheaven release. Fans of the genre will love this album, yet unnoticed to many. Pieces like Apocalyptic Visions, nearly 17 min of majestic symphonic prog, that's why this album got very positive fitback from giants of prog like Peter Banks or Patrick Moraz. 4 stars to this album, recommended to all listners of good , chalenging prog.
