Morse. Tim - Transformation (2005)
The debut album from this US composer.
Tim Morse on keyboards and vocals had help from a duo who provided bass, drums, guitars and lead vocals.
Tim Morse has previously written and released two books about progressive rock. They are Classic Rock Stories and Yesstories. He is also a member of the Yes tribute band Paralells.
I guess he got a need to release his own material and go it alone in music too. Hence his so far two albums. Both reviewed by me in this blog.
The music here is symphonic prog. Symphonic prog in the classical style. But there is also a lot of progressive metal here too.
A good reference here is Spock's Beard and Magellan. His interest in Yes also comes across on this album.
The music is delivered with a lot of keyboards. His own keyboards. But there is also a lot of guitars here too. The music on this one hour long album is muscular and very complex. The vocals is good and some added acoustic guitars add some spice to this album.
The end result is a good album well worth checking out. Symphonic prog fans should check out this album.
