Radiant Records posted this just today. Well worth watching and admiring.
Also, though I will offer a proper review soon, let me take this moment to praise the new Flying Colors’ album, Second Nature. I thought the first album was a great AOR album. It’s become my oldest son’s favorite album (all of the Birzers love everything Morse does, to be completely honest). For me, it was amazing, but it should’ve and could’ve been a bit more so.
Not only is Second Nature “a bit more so,” it’s a HUGE bit more so. I’m not even sure quite how to label it except as proggy-AOR or gospel AOR.
The song writing is excellent, but what really makes the album is the intertwining of McPherson’s and Morse’s vocals. They seemed a bit stilted as a team on the first album. On this album, they’ve clearly discovered how to play off of each other, to better the other.
The end result of Second Nature is something that can only be described as elegant.
