Second part of the Universal Migrator, Flight Of The Migrator represents the metallic facet of it, unlike The Dream Sequencer, which is much softer. The fans will not be mistaken when reading the cover since the singers invited to this second opus come from a more "muscular" universe musically speaking: Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Russell Allen (Symphony X) and Ian Parry, to name but a few.

And from the first track, it's a big hit with the aptly-named Chaos, an aggressive wave that announces a second track with an equally efficient heavy riff. The whole album, punctuated with saving pauses that will allow you to breathe briefly, is systematically at the antipodes of its big brother and, far from overshadowing him, completes him perfectly, so much so that we come to think that one without the other would have been an unfinished achievement.

To complete the "armoured division" side of his work, Arjen Anthony Lucassen also surrounds himself with aggressive musicians, such as Michael Romeo on guitar or Ed Warby, a drummer fond of double-pedals and energetic hitting.

Flight Of The Migrator clearly announces the Star One project which will be released the following year and which will take the guitarist further away from his first more progressive albums. We can certainly regret it, but let's admit that we have a great mastery of the subject here.

The only shadow in the picture is that we can wonder if the fact of releasing these two albums independently rather than as a double is not calculated to make the project a little more profitable. After all, it wouldn't be the first time, but at least here we have a quality that won't make us regret our purchase.

NB: The version offered for sale includes the albums Flight Of The Migrator and The Dream Sequencer.

OTHER REVIEWS
AYREON: The Electric Castle (1998)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - Permanent flirtation between old-fashioned progressive rock, the most accomplished symphonic metal and baroque orchestration, "The Electric Castle" is considered as one of the best albums of Ayreon.
AYREON: The Dream Sequencer (2000)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - With its now proven recipe of gliding synthesizers, big guitars and aerial melodies, "The Dream Sequencer" remains for many fans one of Ayreon's most accomplished albums.
