Into the Electric Castle is an epic prog rock opera from Dutch guitarist Arjen Lucassen. The sci-fi story centers around eight strangers brought together into a dimension of no space and no time. The characters in the story are played by varying lead singers, including former Marillion frontman Fish. The supporting cast is a who's who of proggers, which translates into superb musicianship. The story is standard sci-fi fare, but winds up being quite effective with the accompanying score. The massive coordination of such a large project is admirable, but to pull it off with such impressive results is stunning. There are some moments that work better than others, but in sum this an energetic, fun, and original recording. There is a plethora of styles incorporated here, including progressive rock, progressive metal, neo-prog, fusion, space rock, jazz, folk, and classical. This campy classic helped to spawn a devout cult following for Ayreon and the man behind the music, Arjen Lucassen. © Robert Taylor /TiVo

Progressive Rock - Released November 1, 2008 | Music Theories

The expression "keeping it real" has been used by countless hip-hop and alternative rock artists, who pride themselves on providing lyrics that are reality-based. But some artists don't pretend for a moment that their songs have anything to do with "keeping it real"; they operate in the fantasy realm, which is exactly what Arjen Anthony Lucassen's Ayreon project does throughout the retrospective Timeline. Spanning 1995-2008, this four-disc box set (three audio CDs and a DVD) is full of fantasy-based lyrics and sci-fi themes -- and Lucassen does it without even a trace of irony. Actually, the fact that Lucassen takes his lofty, overblown epics and "rock operas" so seriously is a big part of Timeline's charm. Lucassen doesn't run away from progressive rock's stereotypes or excesses; he happily embraces them, and Timeline reminds us that Ayreon was as overblown and as endearingly cartoonish in 2008 as it was in 1995. For Ayreon, not much changed in 13 years, and that is probably for the best because Ayreon's hardcore fans tend to be the sort of Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Rush diehards who not only don't mind prog rock's self-indulgence, they cherish it. Of course, a four-disc set is too much for listeners who have only a casual interest in this type of over the top prog, but then, Timeline wasn't assembled with the casual listener in mind. Between the three audio CDs and the DVD (which ranges from videos to live footage to an interview with Lucassen), Timeline contains more than five hours worth of material. Timeline is strictly for those who like their prog rock in very large doses. © Alex Henderson /TiVo

The Source is the ninth studio album from Ayreon (aka Arjen Anthony Lucassen) and follows 2013's The Theory of Everything. As with previous Ayreon albums, The Source, is a concept piece and also serves as the prequel to 2008's 01011001. Featuring no less than 11 vocalists, the album's classic rock sound tells the story of the Forever -- an alien race that forms the basis of each of the Ayreon albums. © Rich Wilson /TiVo
