3 stars Not really prog in my opinion.

This is a side project from the man behind Ayreon, Arjen Lucassen. The sound is similar to the works he made with Ayreon before this side project (The Dream Sequencer), even though this one isn't as complex. This is more kind of space (power)metal with some progressive influenses. There is more place for heavy riffs (High Moon, The Eye Of Ra) and catchy tunes (Set Your Controls, Sandrider etc.) than in Ayreon.

This isn't an album that i would recommend any proghead before Ayreon. It's more an album to listen to on a car trip or when working out.

Highlights: The Eye Of Ra, Intergalactic Space Crusader (Russell Allen's song gives me the shivers) and Starchild.

Rate: 3
