Dream Aria – Transcend
Dream Aria blew me away in 2005 with their ambient-gothic rock album “IN THE WAKE”.
Now world music fusionists are back with their follow-up Transcend
Don Stagg’s new compositions are filled with new energy and vitality.
The music on trancend has many influences;Yes, Hawkind, Uriah Heep, Pink Floyd, Enigma and Renaissance.
On “Transcend” there are eleven compact numbers.
My only criticism is that i get a feeling when in i listen to the tracks,
that in some cases that the numbers are not completed enough/a feeling of wanting more.
The overal sound of the group is powerfull, pulsating, rythmic and polished.
Highlights are The Rythm Of Now, Transcend ,Rebecca and Compassion.
This album is a natural progression from “in the wake”.
A matured Dream Aria has arrived, and is here to stay.
The “Doorway” to a wider audience has opened!!!
I can recommend this album too every progressive rock fan and beyond.
This is a treat for every global Music Lover.
