In the school of Kashmir Shivaism, if I'm not wrong, then both texts - Abhinavgupta's Tantraloka and Vigyaan Bhairava Tantra belong to Spanda Doctrine (please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm very ignorant) of Trika school of Kashmir.

Are there any good commentaries on both explaining them in Spanda Doctrine in English?

  • If you want a free version of the English translation of the Tantraloka, you can get it from the internet archive. However, the commentary is not part of this edition. This is 8 volume set. All volumes are freely available. archive.org/details/sri-tantraloka-4/Sri%20Tantraloka%201/mode/… Commented Dec 12, 2023 at 15:26

Jayaratha wrote a commentary on Abhinavgupta's Tantraloka. An English translation is available. This edition is published by Chaukhamba Surbharati Prakashan and translated by Giriratna Mishra. However, this is not free and this is a hardcopy. It is a five-volume set available from Exotic India. Here is the link -
