Vangelis, like Chris Franke, are two artists who have made the transition from a sophisticated EM to a more accessible one. And for each of them, this passage was generally well received by the fans. And if you are among those who have succumbed to the charms of this orientation that pours to New Age, this BEYOND DREAMS is for you. DreamerProject is the project of the Norwegian musician Kjetil Ingebrigtsen. His first album, Voyage, was released in 2012 on his label DPR Records. The same year, the AD Music released his second album; The Road to Your Heart. An album of music structured to please a wider audience that I quite enjoyed back then. And since, 3 E.P. have been released by the England-based label. And it's around this amount of creativity that this kind of Best of ... is made of. It contains the entire E.P. Visions, two tracks from his only album on AD Music and 3 unreleased tracks. In the end, it's a nice array of titles that should appeal to fans of an EM designed to charm and coax people, since DreamerProject flirts with all genres, including an England School more melodious than outrageous.

Voyage being the only album unknown to me. It’s therefore with Voyage, Pt.7 that this compilation opens. Zigzagging sequences and synth in flute mode cling to an abrupt rhythm where a layer of celestial voices hangs onto. The arrangements are in David Wright's tone with a melodious approach that resembles to Yanni's style in a musical perfume as much Mediterranean than Latinos. The rhythm is broken a few times to add harmonious elements more and more attractive. Horizons, Visions and Glorious belong to E.P. Visions. The music is more accentuated with an enhanced sound envelope, like most remixes of old EM albums that we hear lately. But there is a small mistake; instead of Glorious we actually hear Drifting. Both titles were reversed. <
