Transatlantic - Kaleidoscope

Post  Admin on Sat Feb 08, 2014 8:54 pm

Transatlantic started as a side project in 1999 originally under the name Second Nature. The band includes Mike Portnoy (formerly of Dream Theater and a half dozen other more recent projects), Neal Morse (formerly of Spock's Beard and his somewhat Christian-rock solo career), Pete Trewavas (of Marillion and Edison's Children), and Roine Stolt (of The Flower Kings). The band "retired" in 2002, only to play together again in 2009 and remaining relatively active since then.

"Kaleidoscope" is the bands fourth studio album and contains five tracks with a total runtime of over 75 minutes. The "Special Edition" contains a bonus disc with eight cover songs and a runtime of over 40 minutes.

"Shine" was released as a music video in December 2013, making this the closest thing to a single that the album contains, though at over seven minutes it isn't really your average single. The song is slightly reminiscent of Pink Floyd's acoustic work for the first half of the song "Wish You Were Here" but it is more piano/keyboard driven in the second half and an electric guitar shows up for a melodic solo.
