3 stars Star One is one of the many projects from the incredibly talented Arjen Lucassen, who is also the mastermind behind Ayreon (and other side projects including Guilt Machine, Ambeon, and Stream of Passion).

Lucassen's modus operandi is to write and create music journeys and then employ the best instrumentalists to play and various vocalists to sing the roles of the people in the songs. Star One's "niche" is Progressive Metal coupled with science fiction themes; all the songs on the two Star One albums are all based on science fiction films. Check out "Earth That Was" (based on one of my favorite television shows, "Firefly") and "24 Hours" (based on the cult classic film "Escape from New York").

Star One is nowhere as good as Lucassen's work on Ayreon, which is terrific stuff.
