4 stars This is a very special collection of art rock which I have played almost daily since I recieved it. To answer he former reviewer, which I understand doesn't speak or read English well , the drummer is deceased. The other members , apparently k Leonard and j Newnam mostly records this work as a tribute o he drummer. This means no drums . When the late g Leonard does show up on the recording I think it's Tech work . I see THIS TRIBUTE FINAL CD as a polar (polar star) reverse of TEMPEST in fact. Transcendence is rich in a lot of vocals and vocal harmonies and "tempest" in fact is completely instrumental. I can't truly see how anyone hears this as a genisis knock off. After 30 years of making North Star music And being compared to PG Genisis ,maybe NS deserves the crown Since genisis couldn't hold I together for 5 years. Hearty honest music on this cd. A lot of feelings. No drum rock , but endless textures and vibrational , musical mastership. Recommended for listeners with an ear for to the point, fine , subtle , and deep progressive composition. Not one for the beer party listeners to be sure.
