5 stars The supergroup is back with another album, this time a pleasant and uplifting 90 minutes journey into the absolute universe of symphonic prog rock. The music is based mostly on a good dose of Neal Morse and Flower Kings with some Beatlesesque, Yes, a bit of jazz, and a rip-off of the song ''Starless'' of King Crimson. This album is made to listen in one take like a big epic with some recurrent themes. My favorite parts are the dark parts that show a slightly different style from the Transatlantic style of the past. There is nothing more to add about the professionalism of those musicians and the overall quality of the production. The bass playing of Pete at the end of the album is breathtaking. It's no surprise to hear at the end on a Neal Morse project a nod to the multi-part vocals of Gentle Giant. This is a very enjoyable ride crossing the Atlantic reunifying the British, the US, and the Swedish. This review is taken from the Blu-Ray Edition which adds to the excitement of it all...
