Artist: Ayreon (www.ayreon.com)
Title: Universal Migrator Part 2: Flight of the Migrator
Label: InsideOut Music (www.insideoutmusic.com)
Genre: Prog Opera

Part 2 of the Universal Migrator duality takes over where The Dream Sequencer left off, hitting the guitars much harder, almost to the point of metal at times. 'To the Quasar' bleeds your wounds of Metallica and spits out the music with a fiery passion, expelling the drama like you've never heard. If you've not been inducted into the progressive hard rock way of doing things, you couldn't pick a better corrupter than this power hungry sequel.

'I am the last human being alive. I am inside a machine called the Dream Sequencer on a deserted Mars colony. I have selected the program called "The Universal Migrator." This program creates a form of hypnosis which allows me to return to the very beginning of life itself. From the safety of the energy tank in which I lie, I travel all the way back to the period before The Big Bang where matter, energy and time itself all intermingle in the chaotic uniformed vacuum of proto space.'

That's the journey you're in for on this 65 minute blast off. For those who may think being the last survivor smacks of Myst and wimpy music stories like Wakeman's Journey to the Center of the Earth, you're fooling yourself. The Big Bang was not a surreal, ambient mother's song. It's a space explosion of Homeric proportions, grafting the likes of Andi Deris (Helloween), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Michael Romeo (Symphony X) and others into its forceful fold.

Production, planning, programming all kick the devil's ass. The various singers are on solid form. But enough of this. Buy it. You might like to hit this over part 1 initially, if your neighbors don't mind the windows shaking. Then come back to part 1, because you won't be complete without it.

Rock opera lives. And progresses here.
