A little update on my solo album: I’ve recorded 8 instrumental tracks — it feels great! My last 3 albums (Ayreon, Guilt Machine, Star One) were quite dark, but this CD is a more positive reaction to that. The songs are all very different, many contrasting styles. It feels like a song-oriented Ayreon album, but without guest singers. And I think the songs are trying to tell me a story; not sure what yet though!
