(Escape Music)

Canadian singer Rob Moratti returns with his latest release, 'Transcendent' which sees him giving his best performance yet, his vocals have never sounded better as he sings his heart out throughout all 12 tracks. This is melodic rock at its very best and he has a group of amazing musicians backing him up that include, Torben Enevoldsen (guitar, keyboards), Christian Wolff (guitar), Tony Franklin (bass), Fredrik Bergh (keyboards) and Stu Reid (drums, percussion). Making a cameo appearance is Moratti's Saga band mate,  guitarist Ian Crichton. What this all adds up to is one superb listening experience. The overall vibe of this album is Journey with more emphasis on guitar." It's pleasant melodic rock that's upbeat and invigorating without being overly noisy and "screamy." A few of the songs sound similar to one another in style, but the whole is solid. Some personal favorites from this album are "Answer Of Life," "Don't Give Up" "Lost And Lonely," and "'I'm Flying High." From the impressive cast of musicians, one should expect nothing less than a quality melodic rock/AOR creation and that is exactly what you get. 'Transcendent' is one recording you listen to again and again and not tire of it. Rob Moratti's vocals are outstanding and Torben Enevoldsen is amazing on the guitar work! If you like high-energy rock that has a lasting, melodic edge to it, then this album delivers the goods in spades.  Highly Recommended
