2 stars Short and easy. This side project of Master Arjen Lucassen is made for the young female singer Van der Veen to show her talent. Not bad, but just a singer. The music is predictable, the usual AYREON sound but with little compositional effort. As in all Lucassen's work the tracks deliver a clean instrumental work, less bombastic than usual not to hide the lyrics, and one may say he didn't use much time at it. It's a nice present for the singer but just that. The only interesting tracks are one without lyrics, Fate (a cut too much like Tangerine Dream's), and the closing Dreamer, curious, the words making up the title's album. I wonder if there was only one original track and the rest are tossed in for the girl. But the Veen does not break it here, I would only spare her work in Sweet Little Brother. This is for calmed people who do not know Ayreon.
