4 stars well me being a huge prog metal fan and being in a prog metal band it was hard for me to get use to prog rock stuff like Yes, Genesis, etc. However though i told myself that i would get all the side project albums by my favorite drummer Mike Portnoy. So i decided that even though TRANSATLANTIC is a prog rock band i would still get it anyway. At first spin, i didn't even listen to the whole thing and that really was a mistake cause this album IS INCREDIBLE. Never before have i heard such awesomeness in such length of songs and such diversity of styles. This album definitely opened me up to a whole world of progressive rock. i mean come on with neal morse's creative keyboard work, roine stolt's smooth, heavy, and jazzy guitar licks, Pete Trewawas awesome rhythmic bass playing, and of course mike portnoy's playing style in a way of telling us IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT BAND OR WHAT STYLE I'M PLAYING CAUSE HERE TO KICK TAIL. This is a highly recommend album if you like new wave prog rock or old wave prog rock. 4 and 1/2 stars for me because i would give it five but i really am not a fan of cover songs i mean IN HELD (TWAS) IN I is a great track but i would've liked it better if they had another original song
