Specialists/collaborators reviews

Supergroups can be quite a curse, look at Blind Faith, The Traveling Willbburries, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Chas &Dave (I just wanted to play spot the odd one out).

But I think these guys are the only successful supergroup...ever.

These guys actually take the genius from all 4 contestants and put it to good use, with Neal's amazing songwriting and beautiful key work, Roine's amazing improv guitar, Pete's impressive bass skills and Mike's God like drumming to a complete unison of use.

This album is just perfect in every way, and I would even say it is one of the greatest abums I have ever heard. The first and last song are the main contendors, but the middle songs are just as good.

1. Duel With The Devil - A master composition. The main theme Motherless Children is very beautiful, and put to amazing uses. The instrumental work is flawless, with the middle saxophone melody being my favourite. Just amazing. 10/10

2. Suite Charlotte Pike - Mixing Beatle esque harmonies and melodies with some great improv sections, this song really does not fail one bit. Not a dull moment. 10/10

3. Bridge Across Forever - A beautifull ballad. Not my favourite Neal Morse ballad, but still a worth while composition. 9/10

4. Stranger In Your Soul - Best song on the album, and one of the greatest songs ever made. This song has a special place in my heart, because it encapulates some of my all time favourite memories, one of them was when I was walking home at 11 o'clock at night, with this song blasting in my ears. It was pitch dark, and I could have easily been atacked, butI didn't care, cause I was listening to this song. My brother got me into this song, forcing me to watch the live version of it, and I soon got the DVD, just for that song (the rest are pretty good as well). From the beauty of the string section, to the rocking of Hanging In The Balance, to the beauty and solemn of the middle section, to the epic ending. It's beyond great. 11/10 (Yes, 11, take that up your pipe and smoke it)

CONCLUSION: Perfection, in every way possible.
