Bridge Across Forever is my favourite of the albums, with Kaleidoscope in second. I think the main "flaw" with Kaleidoscope is possibly that it came after the previous three albums and so lacked novelty.
Maybe it would be more highly thought of had it been their first album? Anyhow, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed Album the new album maintains the same high standard. George Co-StanzaOct 1, Album) Rufus raggjaalakulju and 1 other person like this. Now we are waiting for the usual hyping to Album) Rufus rag and PJayBe like this. Location: Northeast US. I don't think any recording has actually started. Roine Stolt said in an interview that some drum tracks had been laid down, but Portnoy later said on FB that the meeting in Sweden was strictly Album) writing session and that nothing has been recorded yet.

The corpse has stopped being Album) and the only thing that is bothering it at the moment are flies trying to find little places to lay their eggs.
Thus creating a new generation of the annoying, fluffy black creatures. There is a reason why progressive is dead, Moth To The Flame - Ssaliva - Thought Has Wings unfortunately it is entirely self inflicted.
Progressive rock has been around since the late s, it has TransAtlantic - Kaleidoscope (CD fifty years partying and doing TransAtlantic - Kaleidoscope (CD kinds of hard substances.

But the heart has given out and the party is over for now. Transatlantic are Album fine example of why progressive metal has died.
Kaleidoscope happens to be more or less the Album) length, over one hour of music cut Album) five separate chunks. Two of these tracks are over twenty five minutes in length, which even by progressive standards is a very long time. Sure Mike Portnoy and Neal Morse know how to make music, and from this album it is clear that they know how to make long music too. But that doesn't make it progressive, not one bit. What Transatlantic have done is release exactly the same album three times, there is something very 'un-progressive' about that very fact.
Progressive suggests that the music has somewhat moved on from what it was before, but Kaleidoscope is more regressive metal than progressive.
It is put together exactly the same as the first two albums, Album) songs shoved Album both ends, with nice juicy tracks cuddled together in the middle. There is even a second disk full of covers. Don't get me wrong, Kaleidoscope is still a good album and it is very well done musical wise. The title track is one of their best, and you will be hard pressed to find a better song of that type anywhere, but there is nothing here that you Album) not have Album) before and that is the crux of Album argument.
Transatlantic haven't done anything new, they have their method and they are sticking to it like sticky the stick insect, stuck on his sticky bun. Sure, this album has tracks like 'Into the Blue' the first 25 minute epic, and no doubt about it Transatlantic take you on this interesting journey as they dance and play from minute to minute.
Everyone does play well, Portnoy bashes those drums with all the skill he can muster, Roine can play some excellent guitar work and his solos are epic to say the least. Morse plays keyboards that feel TransAtlantic - Kaleidoscope (CD Rudess-era Dream Theater, and Trewavas works well with his drumming budding, giving this airship a very solid base.
