If Neal Morse is your thing of course. If not, forget everything I just wrote.
The music of (The) Neal Morse (Band) is *horns*. Really enjoy the latest album TSOAD and the live DVD's too. Except for the several technical hiccups on DVD's of course ;).

Yes - "The Ladder"

A very enjoyable album. I like it very much. I still need to get into "Magnification" more, so that one's next on the list.

Yes - "Magnification"
To me this one is not of the same level as "The Ladder". There are some nice melodies, but it doesn't grab me in the same way.

Haken - "Restoration"
This one is grabbing me. *horns*

Alan Reed - Honey On The Razor's Edge

Ah yes! I listened to that one on Progstreaming (thanks for that) and it was quite good in my memory.
Should listen to it again. Still don't understand why Pallas kicked this guy out.

Really nice album indeed. It's growing after more listenings and is more rockier than his first solo album, which was 'softer'.

Still don't understand why Pallas kicked this guy out.
Me neither, he's a great singer. What I remember is that he lived far away from the other band members, which caused difficulties. But for me Pallas died when Alan Reed left.

Awaiting the new Ayreon release, I'm listening to:
Ayreon - "Universal Migrator, Part 1: The Dream Sequencer"

The tenth track (The First Man On Earth) has Neal Morse on vocals and I don't know how he does it, but even on someone else's album he manages to bring me to tears. Does anyone know if he had any influenced on the lyrics? "The wandering child returning home" gets me every time! And some well deserved kudos to Arjen for the brilliant guitar solo!

Don't know that. Will listen to it. Frankly speaking I didn't realise NM was on the album ::).

Edit: now I know it. The song is written by Arjen Anthony Lucassen, Erik Norlander and Neal Morse. Found it here:

http://lyrics.wikia.com/wiki/Ayreon:The_First_Man_On_Earth

Arjen loves to give the musicians/singers some free space, so I'm not surprised.

Ahhh and I just looked in the booklet from "The Dream Sequencer" where it says:
"All songs written and composed by A.A. Lucassen except:
My House On Mars: vocal melody by J. Edlund
Dragon On The Sea: lyrics by E. Norlander
The First Man On Earth: lyrics by N. Morse/E. Norlander/A.A. Lucassen"

Makes perfect sense indeed.

Ayreon - "Universal Migrator, Part 2: Flight Of The Migrator"
I can understand why Arjen initially splitted this double album into two separate albums. They are so different!

Definitely. Love them both, you just have to be in the right mood. Part 2 is much heavier. 'Dawn Of A Million Souls' is one of my favourite Ayreon tracks overall ... *horns*
