Featuring the guitar work of 6 string legend Paul Gilbert, and of course the stellar drumming of long–time partner Mike Portnoy, Momentum is a musical thrill ride that will leave you breathless! Everything you’d ever want in a Neal Morse album is here; great prog elements, hooky pop choruses, intricate vocal weaving, blistering musicianship and beautiful melodies are all present – this is the ultimate prog epic from the man who practically invented the term.
