Well here is the prolific Neal Morse again ! Just one year after the release of his previous opus "One", "? " arrives in the stores. If the inspiration does not seem to have won its author at the time of choosing its title, one cannot say the same at the level of the compositions. Of course, the detractors will object that Neal Morse has a tendency to plagiarize himself but although this remark is not completely false, but a new album from the ex-leader of Spock's Beard remains always an event.

In fact, Neal Morse isn't missing much to achieve a near flawless album, except of course this damn lack of surprise. It's obvious that "? " sounds a bit too much like "One" and the only surprise will come from the few prestigious guests present on this record. If Randy George on bass and Mike Portnoy on drums are still part of the party, we can note the appearances of Steve Hackett, Jordan Ruddess, Alan Morse or Roine Stolt. A great crowd for a great album! Finally, this plethora of guests strongly reminds us of the productions of the supergroup Transatlantic.

Also note the return of Mark Leninger and his saxophone that we had already heard on Testimony. In doing so, needless to say that the album is quite varied, that it overflows with energy with the support of rather rhythmic or even dynamic tracks, that it knows how to be soft and that the technicality is absolutely remarkable. This last point being accompanied by a melodicity of very first plan, following the example of the group... Transatlantic. 

No particular titles to quote, the whole forming a very coherent whole. After some attentive listening, the truth will become all the more obvious, not only Neal Morse has just released an album superior to "One", so much this one seems a little more elaborate than his big brother, but he also offers to us one of the major releases of the year 2005.
