5 stars The two albums that Transatlantic has produced are incredible. They both deserve spots in the top 20 Symphonic Prog albums list (but we all know that will never happened because so many people are afraid to admit that anything can top Selling England/CTTE.) Anyway, this stuff is just amazing. Pity Neal Morse doesn't want to be involved in Transatlantic anymore. I mean, it isn't like Transatlantic would stop him from going on his little crusade haha!

Every single track is magnificent on this CD and it all sounds like a mix of Spock's Beard, The Flower Kings, Marillion, Dream Theater and The Beatles. Very catchy, melodic and epic stuff happening here. Progasmic almost. If I had to choose a weak track, it would have to be Mystery Train, but it's still a great, catchy funky little track. All of the Above is fun and epic, We All Need Some is moving and magnificent, My New World is just plain beautiful and In Held ('Twas) In I is sweeping and stunning. Epic is the only way to describe this band. I can't recommend these albums highly enough. If you like any of the bands mentioned previously, you simply can't go wrong here.

Fuzz | 5/5 |
