review by: Ronald 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.
