Every so often you come across an album that almost seems perfect. Often is turn into an albatross around the artist neck as they try an recreate their seminal efforts again. This could be like this, it is almost flawless, the difference is that it comes from a rich vein of musical inpiration which has been released under the heading Ayreon. Arjen Anthony Lucassen, the creative force behind both Stream of Passion and Ayreon works with a variety of superb musicians to create no only the Ayreon opera format but now this wonderful album along with numerous other side projects. If you like beautiful music listen to this album and revel in the voice of Marcela Bovio and the emotional and sensitive music.

Mexican singer Marcela Bovio first came to prominence with her spectacular vocals on Ayreon's "The Human Equation". After working with her on that album, Arjen Anthony Lucassen (AAJ - the brains behind Ayreon), felt that she had a lot more to offer, so he asked her to write the songs. AAJ wrote all the music and "Stream of Passion" (SoP) is the result of their collaboration.
For those who don't know of the Ayreon material (shame on you), Marcela's voice is extremely powerful and melodic and tends to stay around the higher range of vocals.
I have heard suggestions that SoP sound similar to Evanescence, an impression that was somewhat reinforced by the two tracks that were available for download before this album was released. However, these tracks ("Passion" and "Deceiver") are the closest that it gets to conventional rock / metal. In fact, with the higher pitched vocals and the darker, gothic feel, it seems to have a little more in common with Nightwish. For me though, Nightwish were very difficult to get into and enjoy, whereas SoP grabs you from the start and doesn't let go until the CD stops spinning... Then you just have to start it all over again.
There are some elements, which mean that "Embrace the Storm" is not as immediately accessible as the more conventional rock or metal albums. The vocals range from high to very high (but always top quality) and the gothic tone that pervades the whole album may not be to everyone's taste. There is a smattering of Spanish lyrics, all nicely translated in the in lay. Occasionally, Marcela hits some notes that are surprising in their context and while this is by no means a bad thing (a very good thing, as far as I'm concerned), it can catch you off-guard.

I can honestly say that it is very rare that I get to listen to an album that is so good from start to finish. Mr Lucasson is a truly great musician and should have greater exposure around the world. It is a pity that he has decided to leave Stream to their own devices to concentrate on his other projects, but I am sure they will cope admirally. This album has been on my CD player, my computer and in my car constantly since I first acquired it several weeks ago. I can't wait to see what they come up with next.

Wow, what can I say, this album is a must have for any fan of symphonic/melodic metal music. Absolutely stunning vocals, very mesmerizing, seriously addictive, I just cannot stop listening to it. I am a big fan of Nightwish, Within Temptation, and other goth/metal bands, but this is in a league of its own. I knew about it by chance, and did not know what to expect, and i was happily surprised. The guitar work is awesome, the tunes, the harmony and how it all flows from one song to another, but at the same time you feel it is just like one epic song, and those vocals are just not-real, really fascinating. I am so happy I got it, it is one of the top, if not the top album i got now, would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to listen to something stunningly good. One of my favorite songs is Deceiver, beautiful song. Get it now, do not wait.

I bought this album when I found out that Arjen Lucassen, the mastermind behind the fantastic 'Ayreon' projects was also behind this new progressive metal band. Being new to the Ayreon fanchise, I have only heard the most recent two of those albums but found them both fantastic! This band features the vocals of Marcela Bovio who played the part of 'Wife' on 'The Human Equation. All the music is written by Lucassen and is performed by a band of competent musicians including female guitarist Lori Linstruth. The music is mostly progressive metal but contains hints of symphonic metal and folk with some use of violins and orchestral arrangements. Anyway, time for a track by track review:

Spellbound - This song is really a glorified intro, with pounding percussion and swirlling keyboards and strings. Marcela's angelic voice sits nicely on top of this and really introduces the listener to her. Some drums and a melodic guitar solo begins about half way through the track which suges into some heavy, crunching rhythm. Good start to the album. 7/10

Passion - After the intro track, the heavy rhythms kick in fantastically accompanied by some very Nightwish-esque keyboards. However, this quickly ends and some programming begins with Marcela singing over the top. Her voice really is very good and is one of the high points of the album. The song boasts a very symphonic-style chorus with the orchestra playing along perfectly with the pounding of the drums. A very strong song. 8/10

Deceiver - A rather melodic track that uses dark, atmospheric keyboards and Marcela's vocals to create a spooky verse. The chorus is very powerful and the really heavy guitars really add something to the song.
