Editor: Chad Hoerner.
Continuing down the path he started on with Testimony, former Spock's Beard frontman Neal Morse gives listeners another glimpse of his personal and spiritual journey on Testimony Two. Like the first album in the series, Testimony Two stands out amongst a sea of boilerplate CCM, channeling Morse's talent for composition into a dazzling and triumphant prog epic that beautifully captures the conflict he felt as he toured in a rock band by night while undergoing a spiritual transformation by day. The conflict in the lyrics of songs like "Chance of a Lifetime" show a man who is truly struggling not only with his faith, but with his own identity, creating a story that, while a little on the nose, is an interesting one nonetheless. It's this directness, though, that helps to make Testimony Two a compelling piece for Morse's fans by telling his story without ambiguity or obfuscation. This straightforward storytelling makes Testimony Two an album that will not only serve as an inspiration for fans of Morse's post-spiritual awakening work, but serves as a Behind the Music-style document of his life after leaving Spock's Beard. ~ Gregory Heaney
