Hollande  -  rock progressif / metal  -  **** 

 


   
1995 : un opéra rock progressif symphonique, musique énergique et pompeuse,
             presque hard, entre
Shadowgallery et Quasar lux symphoniae . Géant !!!

   
1996 : davantage dans le style Pink Floyd , un album truffé d'idées, avec un
             gros son, des tendances musique électronique, ainsi que de superbes guitares.

   
1998 : avec Fish , Damian Wilson , clive Nolan….
             grandiose et mélodique, production sans faille,Vertigineux !!!! 

   
2000 : deux albums,  le premier, du progressif symphonique floydien,
             avec des musiciens de
Kayak , Spock's Beard , Rocket Scientists , au chant :
             
Damian Wilson , Lana Lane , Neal Morse , ... une merveille progressive !!!
             le deuxième, un style plus métal symphonique, avec des musiciens de
             
Symphony X , Rhapsody , Stratovarius , Iron Maiden ...

   
2008 : Sombre, mélancolique, parfaitement équilibré, des musiciens très talentueux,
             des chanteurs d'exception et des mélodies envoûtantes, encore une véritable              merveille qui nécessitera de nombreuses écoutes avant d'en apprécier tous
             les recoins, la production est encore une fois irréprochable. Incontournable !!
   
2009 : 32 titres remastérisés extraits des précédentes parutions d’Ayreon :
             6 proviennent de The Final Experiment (1995), 4 de Actual Fantasy (1996),
             6 de Into The Electric Castle (1998), 5 de Universal Migrator (2000),
             6 de Human Equation (2004) et 5 de 01011001 (2008) et en bonus un
             titre inédit de 9 minutes spécialement écrit pour l’occasion : Epilogue :
             The Memory Remains, une composition planante à la  
Pink Floyd  qui
             clôture magistralement cette saga. Grandiose !!!!
   
2010 : Un nouveau  Star One  qui ne déroge pas à la règle, encore du sublime
             
Lucassen , ce " Victims Of The Modern Age ", reprend le thème du précédent
             à savoir un hommage aux films de science fiction qui ont marqué son leader,
             mais cette fois-ci les aventures sont plus terriennes, avec notamment des
             hommages à " Matrix " ou " La Planète Des Singes "…
