"I recorded my tracks back in February and I am honored to be a part of this amazing CD and to continue my working relationship with Neal. He has completely outdone himself once again and in my opinion has created another masterpiece. "SPOCK'S BEARD and TRANSATLANTIC fans will be pleased to hear that the music is as proggy & beautiful as ever and Neal's writing style is still intact and as intense as ever!
