Pools of Sorrow, Waves of Joy is the debut solo album of Dutch composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Arjen Anthony Lucassen, released under the name Anthony. He sang leading vocals and played most of the instruments himself. However unlike most of his future works Lucassen doesn't play bass, with Peter Vink (future member of Lucassen's band Star One and future contributor of Lucassen's project Ayreon) playing all bass.

The name of the album comes from the song "Across the Universe" (by The Beatles), one of Lucassen's favorite songs.[1] Even though the album spawned three singles with radio spots, it flopped commercially.[1]
