5 stars This album is like a union between two of Arjen Lucassen's inner universes, and personally, it is my favorite album of all those created by my favorite Prog musician.

This album is the fusion between Ayreon and Star One. Ayreon's albums have always been characterized for being great metal operas, with excellent first level singers, and very melodic music. To this, in The Source we have to add a little more powerful music, more heavy metal, which is one of the hallmarks that usually differentiate Star One's albums.

The combination is simply sublime, and the whole first CD of the album is full of sublime songs. Really impressive. Maybe, to put a little negative note somewhere, the second part of the album is a step below in terms of songs, but nevertheless it is still a 10 work, and possibly an album that Arjen Lucassen is going to have a very hard time surpassing.

Yubal | 5/5 |
