Star One – Revel in Time Review

Overall, Revel In Time is a fantastic album, the likes of which I’ve come to expect from Arjen Lucassen. It features some of his heaviest guitar work in recent years (since at least the previous Star One album back in 2010), as well as his typical super catchy vocal hooks and choruses, some very complex arrangements, fantastic musicianship, incredible songwriting, and some excellent guest vocal performances all around. Fans of Star One or Lucassen, in general, are sure to love this, while any fans of progressive metal are highly recommended to give this a listen, as it’s certain to be one of the highlights of the year. Even though we’re only in early February, this is already pretty much guaranteed a place in the top 5 albums of 2022 by the end of the year, and I won’t be shocked if it’s at the absolute top, it’s that good.
