3 stars A new project by Ayreon's godfather Arjen Lucassen with a target on rock metal audience. The tracks are configured as standard metal cuts with a touch of prog. We find here all the classic Ayreon's elements, the characteristic powerful bass and guitar bombastic background and choral singing with separated layers of voices alternating in a simulated very catchy male vs female choral and narrative combat, some hammond's as in the Eye of Ra, one of the highs in this album, and superb but few guitar and keyboard riffs. Too muh singing for my taste, with some long traclks in a Rock Opera style as the closing Starchild.. There are no innovations in this album, it is one more of the musically efficient releases by this prolific and restless musician, which however is pleasant enough and brings a little to taste on each track. It may sound somewhat worn out for fans of Ayreon though.
