3 stars Star One is a project of well known musician Arjen Lucassen. This album was release in 2002 named Space metal. Indeed this is a journey through spacey music combined with prog metal. As always Lucassen worked with a bunch of renowed musicians from prog metal like the voice from Symphony X, guitar from Shadow Gallery, Keys from Stratovarius, Erik Norlander also on keys, voice from Edgy of Sanity and other one's. To me this album is not far from he does in his mother band Ayreon, maybe a little more bombastic aproach of prog metal but as a whole is kinda the same with his band. Of course this is not a bad thing , the pieces are catchy and well done, the musicianship is top notch, the only thing that misses from here is the originality. I've heared this kind of prog metal at another fifty bands in last couple of years. With all that this is not a bad album, is only good to listen from time to time. Ayway I don't considered this project to be valid in prog metal scene, even is great musicians here, that's why he release only one album, to copy yourself is not a thing that must be done if you want something to last. Space Metal is like another Ajreon album in my view. So 3 stars for this one, a good but non essential album. Ayway worth a couple of spins if you know his main band, Ajreon, if you don't, don't star with this one.
