4 stars Transcedental circus is the debut of american band Orpheus Nine and is one great release in today's progressive rock scene. I was connected from the first to the last song of the album who came out in 2017. This type of music can listen all day, symphonic prog with excellent vocals and top musicianship. From the great art work, fine booklet all is almost perfect here. What stroke me at first listning is the amazing ease musicians play, the keyboards are more then excellent, diverse and inventive, recommended pieces Eightfold Way , Age Of Rhyme And Reason, or thew magnific 22 min epic tune title track divided in 6 parts. This is symphonic prog with similarities in parts with lets say Rush or Saga, even the voice of Jason Kresge remind me of Saga - Michael Sadler in places . In the end, I like the attitude, I like the musicianship, I like the vocals, the art work , all is more then great on this release. Strong virtuosic playing , but with hooks and melodic lines. Definetly for me one of the best albums from last year. For fans of Saga, Heliopolis, Cell15, etc 4 stars for sure and recommended.
