If you thought live in America was great then you're in for a shock because this is about 500% better! Morse, Stolt, Trewavs and Portnoy were obviously more played in on this record because the band just sound like an incredibly well oiled machine effortlessly recreating their complex and demanding epics in a live environment. Besides being played with consumate skill the music is also played with a great deal of humour and really sounds as though everyone is having a ball. The album opens with a particularly sublime version of Duel with the Devil in which Stolt's guitar sounds terrific - far higher in the mix than on the studio version. Next is My New World which is one of favourite Transatlantic compositions with everyone playing beautifully. The We All Need Some Light with impassioned vocals from Morse and great acoustic guitar from Stolt. This is followed by a wild version of Suite Charlotte Pike with Side two of the Beatles' Abbey Road merged with the original song. The band really have a ball on this tune and for prog rock the performance is very rock 'n' roll. My second favourite Transatlantic tune (Stranger in our Soul) follows with pounding drums and bass from Portnoy and Trewavas taking us into the song proper. I've alwas like Trewavas' lead vocal parts on this song. He may not be the best of vocalists but for this song his lead vocal parts really work. Neil Morse states that this is his favourite Transatlantic tune and I can see why - it has great arrangements and dynamics. It may be thirty minutes long but the piece is so well constructed it never gets boring. The same coudl be said of the final tune All of the Above which is performed superbly.Read more ›

If you're a fan of Prog you'll love this. Fabulous instrumentals, epic songs. You can hear the 'Flowwer Kings' and 'Spocks Beard' influences in different tracks. Superb.

Bought this to catch up on what modern day 'progressive rock' had tooffer. Stupid really because 'Supergroups' (even if they are made up ofmusicians from relatively obscure bands) rarely work. Much of thepackaging describes the last-minute rehearsals for this European tour andit shows!
Bum notes and wonky harmonies apart, the biggest disappointment has to bethe lyrical content which is cheesy to the point of inanity. Some of themusical themes are interesting but it has none of the slightly spooky andunusual flavour of early Genesis, ELP, Camel etc.
Caricaturing Prog Rock i could live with, but this is predominantly acollection of sub-standard rock tunes, played by overtechnical musicianswho happen to own a Mellotron (or at least a decent set of Mellotronsamples)!
Very poor indeed, please see teacher after class!!!

Stunning 14 Nov. 2003
By Christopher M. Domico - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
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.

Great Live Performance from the Transatlantic Supergroup!!! 8 Nov. 2003
By Louie Bourland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"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.

This time, they really polished their act before going out on the road. 22 May 2007
By Squire Jaco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
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")

Holy Crap!!!!! 9 Feb. 2004
By C. Ellman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
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!!!

Gotta' Have It 7 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
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.
