By Alfredo Iraheta exclusively for World Prog-Nation
The Neal Morse Band has embarked on a world tour titled The Road Called Home supporting the concept, double album The Similitude Of A Dream. This album is considered by many to be one of Neal Morse’s finest moments, if not the finest (you can read our review of The Similitude Of A Dream by clicking HERE). Long-time drummer Mike Portnoy has gone on record saying “I honestly think this is THE album of my career”, no small feat considering Mike has been part of some of Progressive Rock’s finest albums during his illustrious career.
