3 stars Music from a progressive supergroup. I have mixed feelings about this album. All of the above has very nice instrumental parts, but I am not very fond of Neal Morse voice. He can sing very well, but it just isn't my taste. I like Roine's voice more and I'm glad he has sung a few parts too. But I really like the instrumental parts. We all Need some Light Now just isn't my cup of tea. And is also compositionally not very interesting, to my taste. Mistery train is very nice, though. I really like the weird drum sounds in the couplets. My New World is really (again) a great piece, but this epic's chorus isn't my kind of thing. The vocals seem to be more in place on In held ('twas) in I. I think this is the best song on the album, although it's a cover. It's really great how the incoherent chaotic piece transform in the more coherent parts. At those parts, Neal's voice is at its best. I love the instrumental ending of this great piece. In general: Good musicians and good compositions (except in a few vocal parts), but not the nicest of vocals. If they made a few more good instrumentals, I would give them a higher rating. I would say this is just a so-so album.
