2 stars Some supermarket prog!

I can easily understand why Transatlantic is popular, and why people like this kind of music. It's a bit like going to sleep in an Ibis Hotel. A standardized service of equal quality, whatever the place or the day of the year. You can therefore be sure of always having the same quality and no unpleasant surprises. As with any industrial product. Thanks to the Morse / Stoilt tandem, Transatlantic took up the concept and transposed it to progressive rock. We have here a product perfectly mastered and recorded. We are served what we expect, no surprise. Everything is controlled to obtain the optimum result, a bit like prog produced in industry and which you would buy at the supermarket. If you've never listened to Stoilteries or Morseries, listen to Transatlantic, it will save you many hours of boring listening.

It's not all bad, oh no! It simply lacks inventiveness, authenticity and emotion. Reserved for tandem fans.
