While The Great Adventure focuses on its own original themes that will be visited several times throughout the album, it also briefly reprises about 6 melodies from The Similitude of a Dream, sometimes with exquisite freshness and emotion. For example, the main opening theme from The Similitude of a Dream is arranged for solo classical guitar, touchingly delivered by Neal Morse at the very end of To the River.
The Great Adventure is the fifth album released by Christian singer Steven Curtis Chapman. The album was released on June 19, 1992 by Sparrow Records. It went Gold in just under one year, being certified June 15, 1993. The album was listed at No. 33 in the 2001 book, CCM Presents: The 100 Greatest Albums in Christian Music
The new album – appropriately entitled The Great Adventure – is exactly that: a perfect companion piece to TSOAD’s partial retelling of John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress. Morse admits that the band’s original intentions on re-entering the studio were largely to produce something very different from what has resulted. True to the album’s title, the creative process was indeed a ‘great adventure. Unlike many previous Morse albums, which have often been recorded in around a week, as many as 21 days of initial recording were laid down by these prolific and world-class musicians, producing an abundance of top quality material – enough for an album lasting well over two hours.
The resulting album is entitled 'The Great Adventure'-another double concept album, a sequel to 'The Similitude of a Dream'! The concept centers on Joseph, the son of the protagonist of 'Similitude', who is angry that his father left him and his family in the City of Destruction. Listen to that and you will hear a great song with excellent hooks-and of course the instrumental break will more than satisfy any symphonic prog fan. The bottom line is I really love this album!
