5.0 out of 5 stars A great, very listenable album November 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Neal Morse has returned to his musical roots. It's time to celebrate!

I really enjoy Mr. Morse's work, from "The Light" to "Testimony", no matter where his inspiration is coming from and with whom he is channeling it with. Yes, there are some that are better than others, but on the whole this man can really put it together. "One" has brought Mr. Morse back to where he was in his groove with Spock's Beard and Transatlantic. Where "Snow" and "Testimony" are enjoyable, they lack cohesiveness and I personally find them challenging to listen to. "V", "SMTP:e" and "Bridge Across Forever" have it all together, start to finish. "One" is in this league.

What separates him from others, prog and non-prog, is his Beatles influence. He wears it proudly and is not afraid to let it show often. That's what keeps his epics together. Each movement is just long enough to get the point across and leave the listener begging for more instead of waiting for the song to end already. Mike Portnoy is a big help in this area. He's probably the only person around who can tell Neal Morse when it's "enough".

Don't let the Christian label turn you off to this work. Take it in for the whole package that it is. I don't feel that he is out to preach to anyone, saying his life or way is better than yours or mine. He writes how he feels, which is what it's all about. This isn't you're typical, candy-a**ed dude strumming a guitar and singing praise to God and Jesus and Heaven with people sitting around him staring up with blank stares on the faces looking like they took one too many hits of Xanax. This is progressive rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars One more, one better February 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Neal Morse has created yet another gem. If you liked "Testimony" you will most certainly like "One."

Often times in the realm of prog rock it takes at least 2 or 3 listens, sometimes even more before a record can be fully absorbed and appreciated. I didn't have to wait that long with this disk. I was hooked immediately. As I continued to listen to this CD again and again, I was merely being reminded of its sheer genius.

Neal Morse seems to have found his niche. The music comes across with power, confidence and conviction - qualities that are certainly lacking in today's world of pop music rubbish.

Exceptional album from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD November 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD but as one reviewer noted the lyrical content can be redundant. That is one of the problems that faces Christian music today. I have no problem with this, but it will be very interesting to see where Neal takes it from here. When he was in Spock's & Transatlantic he could make his veiled references to his Christianity, but in such a way that it would just blow you away and really make you think about what he was saying. That's what I enjoyed the most about Neal and his music. And it's too bad that most of the Christian market will miss out on this great cd because it's not being marketed that way, but that's okay. Their loss for that. Steven Curtis Chapman, Michael W. Smith, Petra and others need to take notice and where you can go with their genre of music. Neal brings forth nothing less than a full 80 minutes of great music which by Christian music's standards of 40-45 minutes this is exceptional. Add this cd to your collection, but please make an effort to get the special edition (I'm surprised no one has mentioned that) which adds another 40 minutes of bonus and cover tracks. Always a treat for fans of progressive music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morse shows again why he's #1 December 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I consider Neal Morse current progressive rock's best composer, and this is yet another winner in a long line of great albums that he has taken part in. The sound quality is better on One than on Neal's previous album Testimony, which is a plus. The electric guitar, bass (played by Randy George), and drums (played by Mike Portnoy) all sound better this time around.

The opening track, "The Creation," reminds me of Neal's past work like "All of the Above," "At the End of the Day," and even "The Water." It's a good epic but isn't one of my favorite tracks on the CD. The emotionally-charged part with the line, "Why? Why are you hiding?" is its highlight. The short "The Man's Gone" is a pleasant atmospheric acoustic song. "Author of Confusion" is full of crazy rocking mayhem, with Gentle Giant-esque vocal arrangements and a section with Hammond organ that would have fit in on a classic Kansas album. Fans of Neal's Spock's Beard songs like "Thoughts Part II" or "Gibberish" should love this one.

Next comes an astonishing extended track: "The Separated Man." The first part, I'm in a Cage, is a great toe-tapper with a classic Beard feel. I Am the Man has an Egyptian mood in both understated and rocking ways. Next comes possibly the best part of the album, a reprise of "The Man's Gone" that whips into an astonishing acoustic frenzy similar at times to "Sleeping Jesus" from Testimony but better. "The Separated Man" ends with the return of an Egyptian motif and the haunting and poignant Something Within Me Remembers.

"Cradle to the Grave" is an extremely touching and beautiful ballad with shared vocals between Neal and Phil Keaggy. "Help Me" has a Latin feel like "The Promise" from Testimony and "Senor Valasco" from The Light.

Another masterpiece of Neal Morse. Great progrock, also very "listenable" for non christian progrock fan's. Just like Sola Scriptura and the Testimony cd's, perfect !

This is a great work. I like the theology of it as well as the music. The movements work, the drums, the vocals, all tie together. Super!
