20 - Transatlantic - Bridge Across Forever
My favorite TA album. The 3 epics are just that, epic songs that are very well written an executed. Each of the members is able to showcase their ability while maintaining a sense of group accomplishment. I think each song is a masterpiece, built up perfectly with all the prog elements that everyone likes, good riffs, interesting melodies, time signature changes and of course MP drumming which kicks ass.
Favorite songs: Duel with the devil - Suite Charlotte Pike - Stranger in your soul19 - Rush - Permanent Waves
I find Rush album to be special because I find it way more accessible than anything they did before, more ear friendly and still it has all the things that make Rush the great band they are. The two longer songs work more in building a mood while the shorter ones are more centered in the riffs and rock much more. I feel that this album was the perfect set for what Moving Pictures would be.
Favorite songs: The spirit of radio - Jacob's ladder - Natural Science18 - Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
Well, I am absolutely amazed that Jethro Tull managed to do a 40 something minute song that doesn’t get boring and that has so many highs. It is just perfect the way the song develops along the way, it’s a fantastic journey full of awesome melodies. Ian’s singing and flute are just marvelous.
Favorite songs: Considering it's just 1 big song…
