5 stars Welcome back!

After so many years TRANSATLANTIC return back with an incredible album. This symphonic rock of high level and it is very remarkable that it was made in a very short time. I was very surprised by the skills of Neal Morse on keyboards in the entire album and the contribution of Pete Trewavas on bass was truly amazing. The guitar sound delivered by Roine Stolt is solid as always. One thing that amazed me on this record was in the vocal departament where we found the very well recognized ones by Neal and Roine and the colourfull addition made by Pete and Mike Portnoy. It is a very well balanced album made by great musicians and I recommend to listen to the second cd with bonus tracks and a very interesting approach to covers composed by Genesis, Procol Harum and Santana. In the deluxe edition the third disc is a dvd with the making of...that is very ilustrative of the band's talent to work in just few days. I don't want to forget to mention the drumming delivered by Mike....awesome! A strong recommendation for fans of classic prog and candidate for album of the year!
