Enjoying Transatlantic - Live in Europe DVD

I've just got three music DVDs; (1) Transatlantic - Live in Europe, (2) The Flower Kings - Meet The Flower Kings, and (3) Yes - Symphonic Live. These are great musical DVDs for classic progressive rock lovers.

Right now I am enjoying watching and listenting to the first DVD, Transatlantic - Live in Europe. It's awesome!

I forgot where I knew Transatlantic the first time, but the players of this band are big names; Mike Portnoy (drummer of Dream Theater), Peter Trewavas (bassis of Marillion), Roine Stolt (guitarist of The Flower Kings), and Neil Morse (keyboard player of Spock's Beard). The nicest thing about this band is that they are different with their own bands. Transatlantic has its own nice, excellent, awesome sound!

Before getting this DVD, I already fall in love with their song "all of the above" which shows that they are virtuoso in their own domains. After hearing and watching the live version of "duel with the devil" I also really love that song. Man, this is a trully remarkable band.

Watching the DVD, I see that Mike Portnoy is really enjoying playing his drum. Excellent. I don't like his drumming in Dream Theater, though. Too much rock, but in Transatlantic I really enjoy his drumming. The best player of the band in this DVD. The second player that I really like is Trewavas. He is not the main figure, but he kept his bass in place. The third player that I like is Roine Stolt. In this DVD he looks a little shy. I know that he is a shy person. (Roine Stolt is actually my favorite player in the band, but for the reason above I put him in the third count.) Neil Morse enjoys the most, but I think because of that he lost his stamina. In "all of the above" sometimes his voice is out of tune. Ouch. That's actually the song that I like! That is why I hate him for that.

Anyway, this is a great DVD! I am glad I got it.
