    I wonder why this is a "Neal Morse" album, and not a "Neal Morse Band" album, since everyone in the NMB is still playing on it.

    "After The Ball" was indeed off-the-cuff. He improvised the song in one take. He talks about it in the Classical Connection video.

    It was indeed a WTF moment I had with Keith, I'll never forget it. But as a general rule, Keith didn't like watching video of himself play. He was also very anti-bootleg. Didn't like people posting...

    You seriously need to hear the album is you think "Makes Me Happy" sums up the entire album. I mean seriously. Seriously. It's like pulling out "Bumpy Ride" to say Fly From Here is horrible.
