had started in 2002. Four albums should be released, each of them dealing with one of the elements water, fire, earth and air to build a lyrical bridge between material and spiritual world. These days the musicians around mastermind
present the fourth and last part of the concept: 'Pedestrians In The Sky'.
The album finishes the element tetralogy with the subject matter 'air' and turns out to be a multilayered hybrid of spirituality, pictorial poetry and powerfully eloquent social criticism. In addition Transit Poetry
offer a lot of stirring, catchy melodies, since in comparison to the predecessor albums 'Evocation Of Gaia' (2008), 'Shamanic Passage Through The Embers' (2005) and 'Themes From The Desolate Ocean' (2004) the hit potential is even higher.
If the first single 'Little Buddha', the driving opener 'Astronauts & Butterflies', the rocking 'Monsters' or 'Der Nachtwandler', the first German Transit Poetry
song, they all stuck in your head after listening to them two or three times. But also in stylistic terms Transit Poetry
went a huge step forwards and enhanced their Gothic roots with a lot of new elements.
'Pedestrians In The Sky' is an original album and the band's style is easy to recognise in each song. Accessorily it is also a miscellaneous album, which only heavily can be put into any average category. If harmonic cinematic pop, guitar-driven rock, metal reminiscences, trip-hop, electronica or melodramatic wave with 80s vibes - a huge of variety of sounds is offered, which nevertheless sounds homogenous. Even ethno influences are integrated in 'A Prayer To The Planet', whereas 'Aeroplanes Into The Sun' contains a wistful, real accordion and 'A Drowning Man' a kantele. Another highlight is the romantic dark pop song 'Luminous Stars', a duet with Leandra
Every of the 15 songs has its own character and is part of an exciting journey into one's own interior world. Altogether 'Pedestrians In The Sky' is a catchy, danceable, organic and profound record, which can be a soundtrack for the self-discovery of listeners from many different genres!
