3.0 out of 5 stars Part works, part fails, 8 May 2012

This review is from: Lost in the New Real (Audio CD)
Like others said earlier, Arjen Lucassen has an enormous catalogue of great music, no matter if it is labelled Ayreon, Stream of Passion, Star One or under his own name. This album "borrows" from all of those. Many of the songs would fit seamlessly in one of the Ayreon, Star One or Stream of Passion albums but they are still different enough to make them stand out as great songs in their own right. If you got the 2-CD version, you got some extra tracks and a bunch of covers. And there is where the pain is. Some of them sound like they are Lucassen originals (The battle of Evermore is a great song in itself and fits in very very well), others sound completely out of place (Welcome to the machine sucks as an original and sucks as a cover). All in all a nice album but there are too few surprises to make it an essential. If you got the download, you can easily skip the crappy songs and compile your own almost perfect version of the album.
