ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Faithscience has a classic symphonic prog style. It's not so retro that it sounds like it was recorded in another era, but it has that early-1970s … Many other musicians participate, including David Ragsdale (Kansas) on violin. Probably the biggest surprise of the year, and highly recommended to fans of classic prog.

-- (Kinesis)

"A very interesting album, with some great musicianship throughout...the production is superb and really makes the listener feel that they are in the middle of the band."

-- Kev Rowland, Prog Archives
________________________

New effort Faithscience is a remarkable step forward for Tim in many respects … For a summary of Morse’s instrumental and compositional talents, check out the whimsically playful “The Last Wave,” a 10-minute crazy quilt of shifting styles and tempos dominated by powerful blasts of symphonic prog.

Those looking for something that will satisfy their craving for classic prog but also deliver it in a modern manner would be well advised to seek this CD out.

Album of the day: Faithscience by multi-instrumentalist Tim Morse. This is a progressive rock tour-de-force of a record worthy of your attention … You'll also encounter some very thoughtful lyrics, touching on some provocative subjects we can all relate to.

"I love the music, and the outside chords and odd time signatures, but above that, the smoothness of your voice is so very inspiring. It is what makes this good record great. It doesn't get old … It remains potently beautiful throughout and it is what ties the record together. … Simply put; the disc is inspiring!"

-- Gary Wehrkamp (Shadow Gallery)

"I love the album - it's great!"

Returning with Tim is veteran audio engineer and guitarist extraordinaire, Mark Dean. The CD also features the superb talents of Jerry Jennings on guitar, Gordon Stizzo on drums and Jim Diaz on bass, David Ragsdale on violin, Timothy Stanley on Cello and Spencer Byrnes on Trumpet.

Thoughtful lyrics, soaring Moog lines, blistering guitar solos, rhythmic wizardry and terrific production make this a CD that I'll enjoy listening to over and over again. Well deserved kudos go to Tim and crew for an outstanding job!

--Matt Riddle (Going for the One/Minstrels in the Gallery)

Once again, it was a pleasure and a journey to work with Tim. This is Faithscience. The second album and the follow up to 2005’s Transformation. While the debut for us, was an era of labor intensive exploration of possibilities, between Tim and myself as the producer and General Co-pilot, with fewer guest performances, Faithscience is Tim’s maiden voyage stepping into the role of producer and working with various players and many performers, in several studios, each with other engineers in different cities and states. Tim has been performing live with the core line up of musicians on Faithscience in four different bands during the recording of this album. The result is a diversity ranging from a tighter and raw feel with a nod toward fusion, to acoustic by starlight, to the revisiting of Transformation itself. All, with the soundscapes and sonic imagery that is, Progressive Rock. Tim gathered about him a fine exchange of energy in the cast of this album. I had the opportunity to work closely enough with the passages on Faithscience to fully appreciate the impressions that speak of eras in themselves. We’re happy to bring it to you now.

__________
The following are brief descriptions of songs on Faithscience by Tim Morse:

Descent - A dramatic instrumental opens the album with a nod to progressive rock influences.

Voyager - The story of Charles Lindbergh and his flight across the Atlantic. A man and his passion, seeing an enormous accomplishment through to its conclusion.

Closer - A musical journey that tells of a spiritual quest.

Window/Numb - companion pieces about being emotionally numb after suffering an emotional loss.

Myth - A song about power and the many ways it can be abused.

Found It - Saying goodbye to a way of life that no longer works for you. The realization that life means nothing without a spiritual connection.

Rome - A song about our collective poor stewardship of the world and how we've seen the high water mark of the empire. Featuring a violin solo by David Ragsdale (Kansas).

The Last Wave - The wave is carrying you out to sea and you have no choice but to go along with it. A big instrumental piece in the vein of La Villa Strangiato or Magnum Opus.

Afterword - A goodbye song for the school mate or friend from work who is longer a part of your life (along with the romantic break-up or the end of life goodbye).

The Corners - The pain of loss to the ascent to heaven.
