5 stars 5 stars no question about it. I hadn't heard much of Neal Morse's music before, aside from a song called "The Light" and a few live videos of Transatlantic performing with Daniel Gildenlow, but after reading some very complimentary reviews(the most complimentary of which was found on Mike Portnoy' s blog) I decided to buy the album, and I haven't stopped recommending this to everybody I know. My first thoughts upon listening were that I found this much easier to listen to as a whole compared to other double disc concept albums. Other than feeling the need to play just "Ways of a Fool" which is certainly the catchiest and strongest track, I play this whole thing start to finish each time I listen without ever feeling like it drags. This was one of the last albums I bought in 2016 but it is almost certainly my favourite. The musicians are skilled enough to really show off, but they never feel like they are overdoing it, but the real surprise for me here were the vocals from all four musicians, simply incredible. I can't recommend this enough
