Radiant Records has released another Neal Morse album this year. This time a full album with the demo-tracks of ONE. The album released in 2004. It has become a tradition of Neal to release Demo-s/ Jams and try outs. Mostly as a bonus CD or as extra tracks to a special/ Limited edition.
Now he has made it into a seperate album.
The reason of doing this is unknown to me but he makes it possible for all fans to listen to ALL of his recodings this way. Because Neal is HOT in the world of Prog, Radiant Records will try to sell as much music as possible.Neal Morse is in my opinion the best prog-composer and one of best multi-instrumentalists around
And now he proves this with this recording. The recordings are the raw results of his composing and pre-recording without any guest members. All music and vocals are all performed by Neal and shows the craftmansship of the master of gospel-prog.
I personnaly don't mind his lyrics about The Gospel and just enjoy every album he releases. This ONE is not the essential album that must be in every prog-collection.
Just a nice addition to the amazing works. Only for major fans
