This is the epitome of progressive metal discs. Midnight's vocals, while refistering high, are crisp and clean. If you are just getting int prog, this is a disc to have. They don't make them like this anymore.

Another masterpiece from the cult band.they shouldve been much bigger when this came out!!

From: MetalGeek Date: April 30, 2002 at 9:32
This is one of the CDs I want buried with me when I die! I saw this band live in NYC in 1989 and it's still one of my all time favorite shows. I was glad when they came back with ASTRONOMICA (it rules), but nothing will ever touch this one.

From: MetalGeek Date: July 9, 2002 at 8:47
I just found an original RoadRacer Records pressing of TRANSCENDENCE at a used record store, still sealed, for $3.99. SWEET!

From: Demonick Date: August 5, 2002 at 19:00
I'm glad Rycheage posted twice, I was a little confused to what he meant by "refistering" And on to the topic of Transcendence--PURE BRILLIANCE.

From: ARXONTAS Date: January 29, 2003 at 15:41
A true masterpiece of the power metal genre feat. one of best vocalists in the history of Heavy Metal (the awesome Midnight!)10+ on ArxontaS Scale.Absolutely No Alternative

From: chevdaddy Date: June 22, 2003 at 4:34
The best power metal album ever made. Midnight kills on this great release.

From: SrFloppy5 Date: November 13, 2003 at 19:07
I don't understand why the hell do people say that groups like this are progressive. it's the same as with Queensrche or Savatage. They're just good groups with more or less intrincate (not to much, just the necessary)or well-structured songs. And don't get me wrong, I prefer this kind of music to prog.

From: marco from ital Date: December 3, 2003 at 5:58
crimson glory..simply the best!!..by the way if someone speak of "progressive"is because bands like these expanded the limits of HM;anyway enjoy it and stay metal!

From: PaterSlovenske Date: March 16, 2004 at 20:49
No doubt this is a great album, midnight vocals astonished me, never heard anynight like that. but the problem here are that the lyrics and some songs sounds just too comercial, radio-kind, with metal-clichs compositions (esp. burning bridges), and without that appeal found in fates warning's prog metal/commercial blend that worked out in albums like parellels and perfect symmetry. still, songs like transcendence (which i found pretty different) and red sharks are awesome!

From: Rockhead Date: June 28, 2004 at 12:11
Sounds like they wanna be Queensryche. No basd thing I suppose but the songs don't quite come up to scratch and the production is weak.

From: Anrod Date: November 23, 2004 at 14:32
Magnifico no hay otra palabra para describirlo Lady of Winter, Lonely, un disco que todo amante del metal debera tener.

From: meradona Date: March 14, 2005 at 9:59
gran disco de heavy metal, muy parecido a queensryche en operation mindcrime, para mi gusto un clasico 9/10

From: FROM GREECE... Date: March 29, 2005 at 16:47
THE BEST ALBUM IN HISTORY OF HEAVY METAL MUSIC!!! THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE THIS ALBUM.SOUNDS LIKE THEY WANNA BE QUEENSRYCHE? ARE YOU CRAZY? THEY ARE MILES AWAY FROM THEM...

From: MERADONA Date: April 3, 2005 at 5:07
PUES A MI ME PARECE QUE SUENA A LOS PRIMEROS QUEENSRYCHE, NO A LOS DE AHORA ESTA CLARO, Y PIENSO QUE LOS PRIMEROS QUEENSRYCHE ERAN INFINITAMENTE SUPERIORES, PESE A TODO ME GUSTAN CRYMSON GLORY.

From: Twisted_vikki Date: July 7, 2005 at 3:43
I'm a big Twisted Sister fanatic but in my opinion this album of Crimson Glory is the best metal album from USA ever wrote.Crimson Glory's songwritting has no comparison.They had been influenced by bands like Queensryche or Fates Warning, but with this album they had influenced the new generation too(see:Chroming Rose,Morgana Lefay).

From: Dean Date: July 20, 2005 at 12:37
The sound of musical perfection.

From: tony Date: November 7, 2006 at 15:33
This is what defines "CLASSIC METAL". Everything from killer guitar riffs to as Rycheage mentioned above High,Crisp,& Clean vocals.The lyrics flow so well with the vocals of Midnight, especially on my favorite tune "Painted Skies".This is without a doubt a must have album for any serious metalhead.

From: halfordhughes Date: June 2, 2011 at 13:58
awesome album!!!must have this!!!highly recommended!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 31, 2012 at 18:38
According to the media this one was the notorious CG album by all means,probably yes but not for me at all...but wait!!!,i'm not saying this is bad,just that it didn't cause me all the fuss it had caused back then...the release hits big time but i think that the band's debut is far better than this IMHO...anyway the outstanding songs for me were "Lady Winter","Red Sharks","Painted Skies"(killer mid tempo),"Where Dragons Rule" & "Lonely"(killer)....recommended???..obviously yes!!!...90/100
