First album of the year. A biggie too! Well, big as in by progs supergroup, Transatlantic. Messrs, Stolt, Morse, Portnoy and Trewavas get together again for another epic outing. To be honest nothing too far from the usual formula, maybe a tad harder edged than previous albums. But I am a fan of Stolt and Morse so not much criticism from me. Yes, it may be pretty formulaic in terms of symphonic prog, but sometimes I like my prog to be something a bit cosy, a bit predictable. Its all wonderfully recorded and played as usual, with plenty of excellent melodic songwriting. It ain't gonna change the world, but it makes my world a happier place!
