I think my favorites (besides Starless) are the Neil Young block and Crazy Horses. Just fun to sing along with Mike on that one.
It's like having an over talented cover band at your disposal, if your a fan of any of these 3 guys (which I'm sure you are or you wouldn't be looking at this item ;)) highly recommend this an their first Cover To Cover.
My daughter who is 10 loves them as well.
And a very interesting collection covering a diverse range of artists: from Bee Gees and The Osmonds to Neil Young and King Crimson. A few classics like "The Letter" and "Rikki Don't Loose That Number", but mostly they have dug up some real gems. "The Teacher" and "Lemons never Forget" are certainly not the first tracks that usually come to mind when talking about Jethro Tull and the Gibb brothers.
Neal Morse sings everything with conviction and - once again - shows what a great multi-instrumentalist he is. Randy George is an inventive and versatile bassist and Mike Portnoy, well, I think it's fair to say he's simply one of the best drummers around. A man who can really PLAY the drums, not just banging around. Using his amazing chops instead of just 'demonstrating' them.
Like all good cover/tribute records they manage to make the songs their own. Putting a new spin of many tracks. But perhaps doing this they tend to make the album slightly monotonous, not really paying tribute to the individual song and it's uniqueness.
None the less this a true gift for all fans of classic rock, prog and the joy of superb musicianship and sheer class!
Bottom line, even if you aren't a fan of Neal's music ... if you have fond memories of listening to your transistor radio back in the 70's & early 80's, you WILL find something on this disc to make you smile.

Boz Scaggs, The Police, Steely Dan, Tull, King Crimson... an odd collection, probably because these guys don't plan their cover albums; they just play what feels like it would be... Read morePublished 23 months ago by L. R. Howard
Generally when artists who record albums primarily of their own stuff, they warm up with or kill leftover studio time with covers. Read morePublished on June 8, 2014 by R. L. MILLER
