Transcedence - An album of memorable anthems!

I love John McDonald's voice. Powerful and expressive. I love the blood rush I get with the intro to the track "Masque of the red death". Great guitar riffs. I love singing to "Painted Skies", "Lonely", "Lady of Winter", "Burning Bridges" and "In Dark Places". I love the outro to the title track. I love this album.

There is an aura of mystique and fantasy in the music as well as the lyrics of this album. Very enchanting.

For those who love SYMPHONY X, FATES WARNING and IRON MAIDEN this album is essential.

4.5 stars

Enjoy!

DREAM THEATER Awake

Album · 1994 · Progressive Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Dream Theater's "Awake" is mysterious, dark, and heavy. It is less energetic and more focused than "Images and Words", even if the melodies are slightly less memorable. Perhaps this is why it is less popular. But it is no doubt musically superior to the previous album. The whole album is brilliant to me, both lyrically and musically. Some highlights include James' incredible performance (particularly in 'Voices', 'Lifting shadows off a dream', 'The Mirror' and 'Scarred') and the instrumental sections (such as in 'Voices', 'Erotomania' and 'Innocence Faded'). 'Space-dye vest' is a beautiful lament. The issues explored are deep and profound, I enjoy the lyrics in particular to "Innocence Faded" and "Scarred".

Favourite tracks: 'The Mirror' and 'Scarred'

This is art!
