Movie Reviews

Solid effort

"While I'd probably consider Stream of Passion to be my least favourite of the many Arjen Lucassen projects, I've got to say this DVD is pretty well done (especially for a presumably low-budget production). The picture is pretty crisp (and widescreen) and the sound is good (5.1 and stereo mixes). I think the performances are actually better than the studio CD - there's a lot more energy in the performance.

The performance also includes several Ayreon songs, a few of which Damian Wilson guests on. Some of these work well, but a few of them Marcella Bovio's voice isn't just suited for. Don't get me wrong, I think she's a great singer, but she sounds too 'nice' for the role of Rage in Day 3: Pain or the Barbarian in the Castle Hall (or even Passion in Day 11: Love). My only other gripe was there seemed to be a lot of band members waving their hair around, which looked a bit silly.

Despite those minor criticisms, I really enjoyed this DVD and would recommend it to any fans of Arjen Lucassen's projects."
Stream of Passion is AMAZING....Aryeon does it again.

"Before I give any kudos to AL let me say this about the BAND STREAM OF PASSION..... THEY ARE SIMPLY AN INCREDIBLE BAND and for those ARYEON fans you WILL get differnent takes on certain classics from the archives from Aryeon and SIMPLY beautiful rendetions from his latest "The Human Equasion" which begs to differ--- when will this genius perform the ELECTRIC CASTLE and THE HUMAN EQUASION in their entirety live in one concert for DVD...but enough of that now let me RAVE about the MAGNIFICENT CONECERT Stram of Passion Put on.... The Incredible Vocals, The Band, The Musicianship...absoutely outstanding...BRAVO to every member in the band and hope to see them on the road and in THE STATES SOON!!!!.... As every AL fan knows everything he touches is absolute MAGIC and this is NO different....completely outstanding in evreyway possible...lets just hope he does decide to use the female singers and guitarest in and upcoming Ayreon solo albums or the like.... My Hats off to ALL Singers and Musicians in SOP.....BRAVO!!!!!!!!!A MUST HAVE FOR ANY SERIOUS COLLECTOR......DO NOT MISS THE ALBUM OR DVD!!!!"
Excellent, highly recommended!

"I love this DVD, stellar performance and good editing, unlike some MTV-style produced DVD's that make you nauseous. If you are a fan of Ayreon in general and SoP in particular, you won't be disappointed! NOTE: this is not a "region 2" DVD, it's region-free and will play fine in the US DVD players."

"I bought this DVD without really hearing many of the Stream of Passion songs, but i did like Ayreon. I must say that I really like this DVD and watch it quite a bit more than I thought I would. Every song is great and played well. The sound quality is excellent and the video is very clear and well put together. I would highly recomend this DVD to anyone, for this one is very good. (By the way, I really like Stream of Passion now!)"
