Staff review by
Mr. A. A. Lucassen shouldn't need much introduction apart from the names of his bands. Star One, Stream Of Passion, Ambeon and Ayreon can definitely speak for themselves. Guilt Machine is the new member of Arjens little band family.
It features Chris Maitland (ex-Porcupine Tree) behind the drumkit, Lori Linstruth (ex-Stream Of Passion/Warbride) on guitar duties and the great Jasper Steverlinck (of Belgian rock band Arid (check them out!)) who often reminds of Freddie Mercury on vocals. Arjen Lucassen himself plays the other instruments and adds some vocal lines as well. Definitely a promising line-up and as such I've been looking forwards to this since the day it was announced.

Listening to it right now. Being "stunned" by the beauty is a bit of understatement. I can say I'm in another world right now. LOL

Listened to this album a few times, didn't get it, didn't get if people could like this.

Now I can't get any part of it out of my head. Some minutes I'm humming Perfection at work, sometimes it's Over, other times the rest of the songs just won't leave my noggin.

Arjen, you deserve all the praise given to you on the metal world.

Hahaha, I didn't know Arjen was in a band with Jasper Steverlinck
The road is long, and the road is hard, and many fall by the side.
