Description

2015, It was only a matter of time before Anneke Van Giersbergen and Arjen Anthony Lucassen went the whole hog with a full-blown partnership. The album concept is a tale of love, loss, and separation told through the story of two fictional seventeenth-century lovers. A Dutch sailor embarks on a two-year voyage, leaving his wife at home in Holland. The only way for the couple to communicate during the long separation is through letters. These letters form the basis for the songs on the album. Lucassen provides the music with intent of creating melodies that lift her voice and carry the story. From his Ayreon compositions, you can expect some significant depth to the music. The songs are largely symphonic with a strong measure of rock and folk music, then wrapped some progressive rock intrigue. The basic album package consists of two CDs of the same material, the Gentle version and the Storm version. As you might suspect, the latter is the more bombastic full-blown symphonic and rock version of the songs.
