    Yet another example of why Neal Morse is my favorite artist on the planet. Just amazing!!! Love this track so much. Making ten minutes feel like three.

    Did anyone check the preorder? They also released the Morsefest 2019 set (4cd/2BR) .
    Prices seem rather steep, CD/BR set for $44,99, 3LP new album for $54,99... (!).

    Shipping from the US is also absurd these days (not Radiants fault of course). Whats not helping is that the BR is released exclusively by Radiant, so no other option than ordering from the US :-(

    It's a limited pressing, I heard just 1,000 copies, which probably contributes the higher pricing.

    I listened to the lead single (Do It All Again). It's not as retro sounding as Transatlantic or Neal's solo stuff but it's good. I'm actually digging the fact they decided to go for a harder, more 80's-90's sorta direction with this one.

    I think you just nailed the reason why I don't like it. Oh well, there's still so much Morse related music for me to enjoy. Glad you guys like it.

    [as a creepy side note, as I'm writing this post I am listening to Randy Jackson of Zebra play a Facebook Live session and what song does he start to cover...but Beware of Darkness! Whoa.]
    Thanks! I'll going to find the Randy Jackson performance now.

    I just did the same thing - you won't be disappointed. Randy just has one of the clearest voices, it just cuts through the music.

    I’ll buy the hirez download once available, but I hope they don’t go too far to heavy prog. Not my cup of tea. Tried dream theater few times - just gave me a headache.

    That was fantastic. But I've seen Randy acoustic before.

    Bird on a Wire is very tight, snappy, energetic and fun.

    They don't, apart from the occasional heavier guitar part from Eric Gillette. But from a full band perspective, the album isn't 'heavy' in that sense.

    You guys are going to find the Bridge Over Troubled Water cover interesting. I'm curious to see what everyone thinks of it, and if it divides the fans. Think Yes doing America, rather than a straight cover.

    Yeah, "Bird on a Wire" is fun. I liked that one.

    That's exactly my preconceived idea of it. Very satisfying instrumentally for a prog fan but totally missing the sentiment and subtlety of the original.

    But what got me sentimental about the Yes’ America, is notion of an English band playing tribute to the country I live in and the images of that time when Simon and Garfunkel performed it. I lived constantly on the road with my military family in the 60’s, and I hitchhiked. Bridge over Troubled Water is completely different theme and doesn’t present in my preconceived notion, more than NMB hell and high water prog.

    It's a NMB classic. Amazing cover, gonna be a highlight of their concerts, too. And don't compare it to Yes' America in your review...I already wrote that line in mine.
