Mais quand on connait le niveau technique et le répertoire
des musiciens, on sait qu'on ne pourrait être déçu.
A ne pas manquer.
Un concentré de stars dans un registre inattendu pour certaines d'entre elles

Well, actually, the technical aspects are what make this CD such a gem! Most likely you have already heard (and loved!) the band's self-titled debut album and this double CD has 17 tracks to reaffirm that these players not only recorded a great album, but for those fortunate enough to see them in their very limited tour, they also performed fantastic shows! But enough of the adjectives, let's get to some facts:
To begin with, CD 1 has the following track list
1. Blue Ocean ( tack 1 from their debut release)
2. Shoulda Coulda Woulda (track 2 from their debut release)
3. Love Is What I'm Waiting For (track 6 from their debut release)
4. Can't Find A Way (a Casey McPherson [the band's lead singer] original)
5. The Storm (track 4 [and one of my three favorites] from their debut release)
6. Odyssey (written by Steve Morse, originally from the Dixie Dregs' 1978 album "What If")
7. Forever In A Daze (track 5 from their debut release)
8. Hallelujah (YES< the Leonard Cohen original, made famous by Jeff Buckley et al)
9. Better Than Walking Away (track 8 from their debut release)
1. Kayla (track 3 from their debut release)
2. Fool In My Heart (track 10 from their debut release)
3. Spur Of The Moment (Written by Dave LaRue, a solo Bass piece)
4. Repentance (Dream Theatre's song off the Systematic Chaos album, although the original is 10min long, this is only 5)
5. June (Neal Morse, originally recorded by is band Spock's Beard)
6. All Falls Down (track 9 from their debut release)
7. Everything Changes (track 7 from their debut release)
8. Infinite Fire (track 11 from their debut release)
Apparently, this album is a complete recording of their 09/20, 2013 show in Tilburg Holland, complete with stage banter, dialogue and, dare I say, imperfections. CD 2 features Mike Portnoy singing "Fool In My Heart" after a lengthy introduction at the end of Kayla. While interesting at first, this is where you understand why CD/DVD combos have different track listing or are edited, as after the first listen, many of the lengthy (45 second talking feels lengthy) intervals grow old. And sadly, some talk bites are the only addition to the songs.. no extended solos, no rearrangements, just those eleven fantastic songs from the debut album played as expertly as possible.
Regardless, the playing is flawless and the quality of musicians along with the band personae (not a flashy prog-rock combo, but a melodic outfit) make for similar-to-studio live performances of the songs, which suits them just fine. Probably the vocal melodies are the most innovative of the album, not because they are unique arrangements, but because the live mix makes them stand out in ways that went unnoticed for some non-audiophiles like me in their debut album. Despite the lack of notorious differences from the studio counterparts, the fact that they played all the songs off their album is testimony to the power of the songs and, to those that enjoyed the album, this live release is exactly what we could have expected, nothing more, nothing less... yet quite simply, extraordinary!
As was mentioned in another (more well written review) there's really not too much variation in the songs from the studio album to the live performances, but that's fine with me. I've never been a fan of when bands mess up their songs far beyond recognition anyway. Maybe a little extra guitar solo or drum solo here and there is nice, but for the most part, I want to hear the song I'm used to. (That's just me...) Since the band only has one album out, this album has been padded with selections from each band members OTHER bands. Alpa Rev (Casey McPherson), Spock's Beard (Neal Morse's former band), Dixie Dregs (Steve Morse & Dave LaRue) and Dream Theater (Mike Portnoy's former band.)
Since this album contains the entire "Flying Colors" debut album in it's entirety (not in order, but still has every song throughout), I think I'm most likely going to find myself listening to THIS album more often than the studio version.
Sorry my reviews are lame. At least I was able to support the band by giving the album the "star" vote it deserved...
I knew these guys could pull off the music live, and they do, but Casey's performance is really what impresses me. He's dynamic and true to the originals. I can't stand it when a great live band is held back by a singer who takes too much liberty with an established vocal melody (I'm looking at you, DLR). We all love these songs partly because of the strong, memorable, and sing along worthy melodies. Casey, Neal, and Mike deliver.
Another thing that stands out to me is how strong Neal's backing vocals are, and how much they enhance the songs. "Can't Find a Way" is a perfect example. When Neal takes lead, he performs just as well as he did on Transatlantic's Whirld Tour 2010.
Musically, Mike, Steve, Neal, and Dave are just what you'd expect. I do enjoy being able to hear a bit more of Dave's bass playing on this live recording than certain times on the studio album.
I hate to bring this up, but I have loved almost everything Mike has done since leaving Dream Theater. I couldn't be happier that Flying Colors is in the process of making a followup album, and that Mike has time to play with Transatlantic (new album releasing this month), Neal Morse, and the Winery Dogs. For me as a fan, Mike's post-DT work has been a gift.
A lot of supergroups fail to have a lot of appeal, somehow. Flying Colors walks between pop and prog better than most I have heard, and it definitely worth a listen - for everyone, really. "The Storm" is a top track, something so good I am pushing it on non-proggies.
Here's hoping that their second live effort is even better, and that this group continues writing, recording, and touring as their schedules permit.
