4 stars AMBEON is an ARJEN LUCASSEN project built around the superb vocals of 16-year old ASTRID VAN DER VEEN, whom LUCASSEN discovered when she was just 14. The music - mostly electronic with a gothic feel - is almost identical to that of AYREON, LUCASSEN's other pet project. But it is ASTRID's powerful delivery that gives it a peculiarly haunting feel. This young lady can sign: she'll tear your guts out on such tracks as "Sick Ceremony", "Lost Message" and particularly "Sweet Little Brother", a tune that recounts the chilling tale of a young boy murdered by his sister. Considering the rarity of truly talented female vocalists on the prog scene, "Fate of a Dreamer" is a little treasure to behold. And with LUCASSEN at the controls, you have nothing to fear: the top-notch production and the excellent musicianship that characterize all of his projects are all present here. A very unique album indeed.
Hibou | 4/5 |
