So, "Fate Of A Dreamer" is the debut and only album of Ambeon, until now, and was released in 2001. Originally it was conceived as an ambient remix of Ayreon's instrumentals and Ambeon's "Fate Of A Dreamer" blends electronic patterns, chords and melodies derived from existing songs with Astrid's crystalline vocal arrangements. The name Ambeon is a play on the words "Ambient" and "Ayreon". As the music, without vocals, is based on previous Ayreon's songs, it could be said this act is an "Ambient/Ayreon" album

Now added to the 2001 album Fate of a Dreamer we find the addition of The Unplugged Sessions along with bonus material. The words in the flyer state, "The name AMBEON is a combination of 'ambient' and 'Ayreon' ", which I find to be spot on. Whether you consider Ayreon to being more Prog Rock or Symphonic Metal; it is impossible to not to be enchanted by Astrid's voice of innocence, strength, atmospheric and etheral quailities. There is a pleading and emotional outlet within her phrasing that let's you in to hearing her soul.

Fate of a Dreamer is Ambeon's debut album, released in 2001 by Dutch music label Transmission Records. All of the ten tracks features samples from and arrangements of Ayreon's songs, as noted below. The album is currently out of print, due to the closing of Transmission.
