5 stars Someday you go to the music store and you find Transatlantic "Live In Europe" DVD and The Flower Kings "Meet The Flower Kings @ Live Recording 2003", what would you like to have most? That's a difficult question, especially for the Symphonic Prog fans. Personally, I'll take "Live In Europe" because Transatlantic's members are all the masters of prog. Here, you can see the line-up: Neal Morse (at the time Spock's Beard), Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings), Pete Trewavas (Marillion), and my greatest influence, Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater). I was so impressed to watch them and I never regret not to choose "Meet The Flower Kings" even I still don't have it yet until now. The concert was recorded in Holland and they played all their epics such as the nearly thirty minutes "Duel With The Devil", "Suite Charlotte Pike Medley", "Stranger In Your Soul", and "All Of The Above". The most favorite track for me is "Stranger In Your Soul" where Portnoy started play his solo drum from the intro. Wow, cool solo, isn't it?? I also give a credit for Neal Morse who could play keyboards, acoustic guitar (on "We All Need Some Light"), and even drums (help Mike Portnoy on "Stranger In Your Soul") nicely. The extras are also fantastic. You can see their tour documentary and the legendary "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (Pink Floyd). After you read my review, could you find the weakness from this DVD? Well, it's almost perfect for me so I'll give the four star and for you, guys, try to find and collect it!
