4 stars This album is NOT prog-metal at all, I'm positive that most people expected an "Ayreon-like" album with lots of power and an over-the-top concept. While some listeners felt very disappointed with the direction of the Ambeon project, others welcomed the softer and most atmospheric sound of the album.

In my opinion, there is no relation between this music and that of "Ark, Pain of Salvation, Liquid Tension Experiment, etc. Ambeon SHOULD be compared to the likes of Clannad, Dead Can Dance or even Tori Amos, "Fate of a Dreamer" features some of those influences mixed with Ayreon's harder edge but without pushing the music towards hard-rock.

There are hardly low points on this record, all tracks flow into each other like most of Arjen Lucassen's albums but the most important feature is the voice of the lovely Astrid Van Der Veen, it's amazing how a 14-year-old girl has delivered such a professional vocal performance, comparable to any skilled veteran female singer.

So please don't expect any prog-metal here, instead just relax and listen to the music, I bet you'll love it!
