Testimony (Neal Morse album). Studio album by Neal Morse.

Neal Morse (born August 2, 1960) is an American singer, t, bandleader and progressive rock composer based in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1992, he formed the progressive rock band Spock's Beard with his brother Alan and released an album which was moderately successful. In 1999, he joined former Dream Theater co-founder Mike Portnoy, Flower Kings' Roine Stolt and Marillion's Pete Trewavas to form the super-group Transatlantic.

Free from the constraints of studio recording deadlines, Morse expanded his musical vision on Morsefest 2015 and augmented the already amazing Neal Morse Band with live strings, five-piece horn section, orchestral percussion, female background singers and a full choir. They went on to release THE GRAND EXPERIMENT in 2014 followed by the ALIVE AGAIN live DVD/2 CD package in 2015. Together, the five members are now embarking on THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM. This will be the eighth studio album with Morse, Portnoy and George, but the second as a true collaboration with this lineup. As Neal Morse explains, "THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM is loosely and sometimes directly based on the book, Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan.

You’ll get Neal Morse testimony. This huge monster was created with the help of Mr. Mike Portnoy, one of his good friends. By monster I mean this album is huge! More than 2 hours, and believe me this is worth it. What makes this record so amazing is the variety of stuff you’ll find. The starved music fan will be pleased. Another good thing is that the album is not based on one single mood. The record is not dark, it’s not happy, it’s not humorous, it’s all of that. The story is basically Neal’s life.
