I really need to check this guy's work out.  Sounds awesome.  I've only heard a few Transatlantic songs on Last.fm, and I was impressed, but I get the feeling that you have to hear the whole album to truly "get" it.
Dude....he is beating out DT as my favorite artist.

Sometimes, anyways.

At that time, I wasn´t really into his music, so 99% of what he played was new to me, but between then and now, I almost learned every lyric. And his lyrics are pretty hard to learn Tongue

Recently, a friend of mine got "Snow" by SB. So to share our music with each other, he came over to my house, we got the stero going (I LOVE my stero system!) and sat down for 5 hours to listen to Snow and O3 back to back!

I really appreciated Neal's work on that album (I hadn't heard that particular album before) and I thought it was really cool. However, I must admit that I thought the trilogy crushed it! Haha, well, let's just say I enjoyed them both, but the trilogy I enjoyed more.

Anyway, 5 hours of concept albums is pretty intense, so anyone who tries this should be careful!  Shocked

One thing I've always found kind of interesting is the fact that Mike Portnoy is Jewish, yet he's played drums on Neal's last few albums, which have very outspokenly Christian lyrics.

I think it's because Mike Portnoy is a very intelligent guy, and more importantly, he is very musicially inclined. It's all about the music, and obviously he wouldn't let religion get in the way of that.

I could be wrong, but at least that's the way I see it. Music is about more than just judging your bandmates for their religion; if everyone sticks to the music and has an open mind about things, then religion wouldn't seperate him and Neal Morse. And boy and I glad for that! Both Neal and Portnoy are amazing musicians, and it would be a loss if religion got in the way of that.

mike said somethin like "not bad for a blue-bearded, long-haired, heavy-metal jew" 

can anyone find the original quote?
