Morse, Portnoy, George ~ Cov3r To Cov3r

Sons Of Appollo ~ MMXX

  Another great one from Sons Of Appollo. Starting off with a song over 7 minutes long, that starts off very slow & melodic, and then blisters into what you would expect from Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, … Continue reading

Neal Morse ~ Life & Times

  This is an entirely different take on what Neal Morse usually does on his albums. This is sort of an acoustic album. There are no bombastic drums, no flowing keyboards, no wailing guitars. What you do get, are fantastic … Continue reading
