Let me start off by saying that Neal Morse is a creative genius. His musical skill, his vocal skill, his production skill are all at 100%. Add to that, the mixture of his band-mates, Mike Portnoy, Randy George, Eric Gillette & Bill Hubauer, who are all within that same bracket with Neal. This album, The Great Adventure, is a concept album, following along the same line as his last album “The Similitude Of A Dream”. This album seems to take over where that album stops. There is a little bit too much of repetition, but, with the fact that it is a concept album, or as Pete Townshend may call it a “Rock Opera” , maybe not. I didn’t find it was too repetitious, but, I’ve heard others that say that. There was certainly repetition with “Tommy”, and we know how much of a great album that is. I really do like this album & the fact that Mike, Eric, Bill & Neal all sing lead, while even including Randy in a speaking part, makes this album even a little more special…especially when they harmonize. This is a gem & should be listened to. I give this 5 out of 5 Music Guru stars.
