It's unusual that a band that only has two studio albums should have as many live albums, but Transatlantic isn't your normal band, and since they're probably never going to be playing together again, I'll buy anything they release. For those of you who have Live in America from a couple of years ago, this is not the same live experience. Live in Europe presents you with a band that has "gelled" a lot better and is performing the tunes with a lot more ease. Just listen to "Stranger in Your Soul" once through on this album and you'll hear that this was a magical night in the band's short history. The things that ruined Live in America for me (mostly sloppiness) are more than made up for on this disc. Buy it if you've been following Transatlantic. Buy it if you haven't. It's really good prog.

"Live In Europe" captures a top notch performance from one of progressive rocks premier supergroups, Transatlantic. The band consists of former Spock's Beard leader Neal Morse on keyboards, vocals and guitar, Flower Kings guitarist Roine Stolt, Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy and Marillion bassist Pete Trewavas. Together, they perform an intense solid brand of prog-rock that draws on the likes of Yes, early Genesis, King Crimson, ELP as well as each members own band.
This double CD-set includes six epic tracks, four of which run close to 30 minutes apiece, and covers music from both of the band's two studio albums "SMPTe" and "Bridge Across Forever". All of the music performed here displays excellent musicianship and craft. These four musicians definitely can play off each other effortlessly. Highlights include some fine musical moments during disc 2's lengthy suites "Stranger In Your Soul" and "All Of The Above" as well as a fantastic representation of The Beatles "Abbey Road" medley interspersed through "Suite Charlotte Pike" on the first disc. "We All Need Some Light" is a touching heartfelt tribute to 9-11. "My New World" has a touch of '70s King Crimson to it with Roine Stolt's John Wetton-like vocals. "Duel With The Devil" is a dramatic epic with a definite Spock's Beard feel to it.
All in all, "Live In Europe" is a stellar performance from this fine group of musicians. It's unfortunate that this album could be the band's last because of the departure of Neal Morse from this band AND Spock's Beard in late 2002. On the bright side, this is a great album to reminisce with and shows just was a musical powerhouse Transatlantic really is and was. Definitely a must for any progressive rock fan, especially if you're into long epic pieces.

Even though the studio versions of these songs are slightly crisper and tighter, it's absolutely mind-boggling that these four guys (plus Gildenlow) can actually play and remember(!) these long and intricate pieces live, almost flawlessly. This is a very worthwhile addition to the small Transatlantic catalogue, and renders useless the earlier (mistake-laden) "Live in America" album. With around 140 minutes of overall music, one gets about 80% of the music released on the studio cd's, plus they intertwine the Beatles' Side 2 Abbey Road suite with their own Beatles-esque "Suite Charlotte Pike". Really well done, and a neat tribute. All songs are played and sung exceptionally well, though the harmonies are admittedly off a tad in a few spots - forgiveable in light of their complexity. There's a nice balance between all four members of the group, both instrumentally and vocally. Yeah, I wish Portnoy's fudgin' potty mouth behaved itself a little fudgin' better between the fudgin' songs; but I do like his singing vocal touches, and both he and Trewavas sound better in this setting than they ever did in their original bands, Dream Theater and Marillion.

I think the tag "supergroup" is overused, but I gotta admit that these four guys composed and played some of the most melodic, interesting and lush prog this side of 1976, and made it look natural. (Couldn't be because of the peerless Stolt and Morse, right?)

Buy this nugget, and snatch up the two studio albums if you don't already have them.
Essential prog in the classic traditional symphonic style (with occasional melodic pop sensibilities).

I value interesting music that is played and recorded well. This cd's rating was based on:
Music quality = 9.1/10; Performance = 9.6/10; Production = 9/10; CD length = 10/10.
Overall score weighted on my proprietary scale = 9.3 ("5 stars")

SMPTe and Bridge Across Forever are incredible, but how would 16-30 min songs translate to the stage? Buy Live in Europe and find out for yourself. The fact is, that this band is absolutely brilliant. They are playing complex, complicated music, yet it is singable and melodic at the same time. They even throw in some tunes from Abbey Road in the middle of Suite Charlette Pike. It is easy to tell how much fun the band is having playing with each other and interacting with the crowd. For people who like Dream Theater, Spock's Beard or other great prog bands...this is a must have!!!

I don't write many reviews, but I had to say a few words about this one. If you're a Transatlantic or Spock's Beard fan, you have to have 'Live in Europe'. I just finished my second listen through and I love it. They're playing tight and having lots of fun. You won't regret this purchase.
