  Looking forward to this, so much.

  Mike Portnoy finally got to work in some full-fledged prog album after leaving DT it seems. This is definitely one of my most anticipated releases of '14.

but this supergroup has been around for more than a decade. This is their fourth studio album.

Flying Colors was prog as well.

Yes I am aware. Didn't bother with that though, seeing as the nature of his other projects he is involved I lost interest in checking any of it out. But this one is a full-fledged prog, so I'm looking forward to it.

  Listening to it now. Seems pretty solid prog to me!
JohnDoe - 27.01.2014 at 17:42  
  Meh, predictable and rather dull; it reminded me why I dislike Neal Morse.

Haven't listened to this album yet but as far as Morse goes, leaving lyrical theme aside, Sola Scriptura is musically pretty damn brilliant album.

I.

Rating: 6 Right now, it just sounds like Prog 101... Currently not impressed.

Yeah, I hate to agree, but they don't give me much option. Clearly the potential is there to do a lot more. This album certainly has a few good moments, but before you have time to absorb them you are smacked upside the ears with several minutes of prog clichés.

So much musical talent, all they need is a little friggin' creativity! I may hold a minority view here, but in my mind you can't be considered a progressive artist if everything you do has been done before. That's the opposite of progressive, no matter how well you play your instruments.
