Prog Reviewer
4 stars The Dutchman Arjen Lucassen is best known under the moniker AYREON. Now he has released an ambient prog metal album together with a 14-year-old girl named Astrid Van Der Veen. Arjen has written the music, and the lyrics and melodies are written and performed by Astrid. A very successful combination! Astrid has a very strong and beautiful voice, and her singing together with the music makes you think of a mix between SHAKESPEARS SISTERS, Lana LANE, BLACKMORE'S NIGHT, NIGHTWISH, Tori AMOS and Kate BUSH.

There are also two interesting guest musicians on this album: Erik NORLANDER on additional synths and Lana LANE on reversed backing vocals.

This album is a perfect mix between ambient, folk, Goth, prog metal and symphonic rock. It's recommended to AYREON followers as well as Tori AMOS, Kate BUSH and BLACKMORE'S NIGHT fans.

Greger | 4/5 |
