Revel in Time is the 3rd studio album by Arjen Anthony Lucassen's progressive metal project/supergroup Star One, released via Inside Out on 18 February 2022.

As with previous Star One albums, here Lucassen focuses on the "metal" side of his main project Ayreon while dispensing with the latter's typical acoustic and folk elements. He saw more hard rock elements on this album. Also, the lyrics are inspired by science fiction movies or TV series, only this time they focus on movies involving time manipulation, such as time loops and time travel. The title is inspired by a quote from Blade Runner.

Unlike previous albums, however, in which the same quartet of four guest vocalists (Damian Wilson, Dan Swanö, Floor Jansen and Russel Allen) would participate in the main songs, Revel in Time features several different vocalists, one for each track, including Roy Khan, Tony Martin, Jeff Scott Soto, Joe Lynn Turner and the four aforementioned ones. This was partly due to the international travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It also features guitar and keyboard solos by guest instrumentalists, such as Jens Johansson, Steve Vai, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and Adrian Vandenberg.
