I'm a new Ayreon fan,
This review is from: 1011001 (Audio CD)
Hi! I decided to share my opinion since the existing all came from people who had expectations. I, for myself, can tell that I had none. I came in contact with Ayreon through this album only, so I will cannot compare it to other work of Arjen Lucassen.
This is an absolutely great musical work which grows and grows at every new listen. Arjen chose his vocalists wisely, and they all present some great moments, especially some of the male vocalists (can't point their names, though).
Musically, I believe it to be a small treasure in the immense heavy metal scenario! I have no words to describe Arjen Lucassen's talent but awesome. He combines textures, vocals and melodies like only a true music composer does.
This is one of those albums that makes you feel obliged to thank the artist in some way. I know I will... I'll buy the album!
It is definetely a MUST-MUST-have.
