TOUCHING THE DIVINE is the third studio album from Intelligent Music Project and the second all-star line-up, creating a remarkable infusion by its author and producers musically erudite and unconventional style, and the full creative input of the legendary musicians. The production features session aces Simon Phillips (drums and percussion), Nathan East (bass) & Tim Pierce (guitars), and the remarkable voices of John Payne (ex-Asia) and Toto`s Joseph Williams, who bring their own flavor to all 14 equally outstanding pieces in the album.
The bands overall musicianship blends impressively with the complexity of musical arrangements, including unforgettable symphonic expansions. Matching the classic rock energy and instrumental charge with his lyrical patterns, rapt and diverse music theme development is the signature style that propels this all-star project of Milen Vrabevski, author and producer of TOUCHING THE DIVINE.

1/ Escape from all the suffering through me, thats all
Escape from all the fear you have known
Youve got the strength to be yourself
This state of mind aint gonna fail.
Escape from disbelief to leave a trail
2/ You find the inspiration for the things you do.
No better way to make your dreams come true.
Thats how you grew / to heights I knew
The main thing to believe is you
The way the big success is joining you
Ch/ Time still left to decide, if you live for certain, delivering light.
You keep changing your mind and making it searching /
To find all the routes to go high (CODA: as life isnt just to go by )
3/ Youre touching the Devine with evry step you make
Of bringing harmony and lovin care
Self-confident in what you do
You find what you believe comes true
Its you of life, and truth, and beauty there.
Mid Part/ To me life brings pictures of you in my mind/
Your soul is the thing Im to get to/
Your hearts getting things for you the winning kind
Just mind that a lifes not to make through
A great deal of our troubles comes from the fact our minds are occupied by nothing better, nothing meaningful and sustainable. If trying to reach the Divine presence within us, we should learn to listen to our hearts, on the way to becoming a source of love and harmony to our environment One could hardly get the essence of life until he turns into the energy that created him the energy of love.
