What I heard from the Transatlantic album, which I've had neither the time nor patience to make through (it's kind of a behemoth, yknow?), was vastly superior to the Dream Theater album, though. I was a bit surprised since I had kinda expected it to be the usual (imo getting stale) modern prog thing. But yeah, compared to those two Redemption definitely took the cake.
edit: the Shadow Gallery and Machines of Grace albums are both on my "hopefully get around to listening to" list.
