4 stars This summer Hamlet's one-man project Transport Aerian has released a new album under the title Bleeding, after almost three years of silence. Just like all the other project's works, this album's genre is difficult to define, as it merges the elements of crossover prog, psychedelic, post-prog and sometimes even reaches out to the area of jazz. This album appears to be slightly less heavy than previous ones and seems more keyboard-oriented. However, despite that Bleeding difficultly falls under the genre categorization, it can be best described in the terms of emotions: it is introvert, mesmerizing, self-drowned, concentrated on the poetry of inner pain and private investigations. This is sort of music which you would like to listen in the complete darkness, concentrating on every sound, letting simple piano melodies flow into the cacophonic noise galleries.

Hamlet's singing is something that adds a special touch to the album: vulnerable, imperfect, ranging from soft whisper to quite powerful raspy high-pitched shouting, it is closer to the poetic utterance than to the regular singing. It is all about emotions and feelings and this is what Hamlet's voice transacts effortlessly.

Despite that album is considered to be conceptual, a recommended song to start with to get to know the band would be Inspire, a 10-minutes long love song, which contains most of the elements of Transport Aerian's current state of music. Transport Aerian is not the music for a wide audience. But for those who still think that music is a speech of the soul, this is an absolute must-have.
