Sola scriptura released in 2007 find Neal Morse in a excellent form, delivering, at least for me, the best he can give, this is his masterpiece work and one of the best albums I 've heard in last years. Absolute great from first to last second. This album worth to be investigated only for the stunning opening pieces The door, 30 min of high class musicianship and excellent ideas, one of the best pieces I've heard from progressive rock zone, excellent. Helped again by the monster drumer Mike Portnoy, Neal Morse gives to the listner one of the top album from last decade and not only, his druming can easy be recognazible because of the uptempo and crazyness he infuse in the pieces, here is stunning. I also like how Morse use the lyrics here, even I'm not the biggest christian ever existed, I'm not bothered about his lyrics or how he used in his music, each one can compose and as he want's, Neal Morse here is great. The album has 4 pieces, 3 are very long and one is more mellow just to diverse the wholness of the album, each track specially the longer ones has a lot of instrumental passages, the keybords are well melted with the guitar, invited guest here on this instrument the legent among rockers Paul Gilbert from Rated X fame. So another stunning release from Mr. Morse, to me his best work so far and one of the best from prog rock in last years, the complexity and the overall arrangements are top notch. Very entertainig album with a lot to offer, doesn't matter if you like neo, prog metal, symphonic or other genres, this is a kick ass album from stars to finish. Recommended.
