SMPTe (Stolt, Morse, Portnoy and Trewavas)
InsideOut Records

Transatlantic (Stolt, Morse, Portnoy and Trewavas) is the project/group/album creation of four or of prog rock's bright stars: Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Neal Morse (Spock's Beard), Roine Stolt (Flower Kings), and Peter Trewavas (Marillion) and as you would expect, this is not album for the musically weak... It is full of inventive pyrotechnics and pulsating rhythms that move forward incessantly but eloquently.

This is arena rock at its best... Energetic and energizing, elegant and elegiac, powerful and passionate... this is 77 minutes of TRUE ROCK for the faithful - A true masterpiece for the prog/rock organic masses.
