4.5 superbKjSwantko | March 6th 12

An incredible work that is very reminiscent of prime Queensryche, except I'd consider saying this is possibly even better. NoTrap recommended me this album and damn was that boy ever right about it. '80s Power-Prog is so damn underrated and the album proves it. "Painted Skies" is a trve jam.

An amazing album from one of the most underrated heavy metal bands of the 80's.

5.0 classicMatthaios | May 14th 15

This record was released in the same year as ...And Justice For All, Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son and Operation: Mindcrime, so it isn't hard to understand why this was vastly overlooked. Transcendence is such a criminally underrated record, it's better than all three and for my money, one of the greatest Metal albums ever recorded. Fantastic musicianship, combining elements of Prog, Power Metal, even a little Glam, with Midnight's freakish vocal abilities. Outstanding work.

4.5 superbThrashK | January 21st 15

The band evolves their sound from the self-titled debut - to different heights. Not necessarily
all-around better, just different. They score, just like with the debut.

4.0 excellentXenorazr CONTRIBUTOR | August 8th 10

At some points, Transcendence does come quite close to living up to its name. The overall package here is far more balanced and in-command than its predecessor, adding the occasional atmospheric bit to provide an epic feel to certain tracks. It doesn't quite stand alongside other classics but at a point when metal wasn't exactly in its prime, it holds more ground than most of its competitors.
