Album 365: Day 18 - Transatlantic - Bridge Across Forever

Bridge Across Forever

Favorite tracks: Duel With the Devil, Suite Charlotte Pike, Stranger In Your Soul
Sleeper tracks: Bridge Across Forever

I've grown weary trying to defend this band.

2nd release from the group.  I've played this hundreds of times since its release.  Think Beatles meets Emerson, Lake and Palmer meets Genesis while listening to Rush and Yes.  That cool...that masterful.

My favorite tracks are 26, 14 and 30 minutes long.  That should give you an idea of how progressive this band is.  Drummer from Dream Theater, bass player from Marillion, guitar player from The Flower Kings, singer from Spock's Beard.  Enough bombast and melody for the thinking man.   If you want to commit 80 minutes of your life to an album...try this release.  Seriously.
