Well worth a punt!,
This review is from: The Human Equation (Standard Version) (Audio CD)
This is quite simply a magnificent opus.
It is a concept album (with the unlikely story of a man in a coma and all who are close to him) that keeps one enthralled from the very first note to the last. In my opinion there is not a weak or unimaginative track on either CD.
If you veer towards prog metal or are an out and out progster (as I am), this double CD will reward you with its superb musicainship, excellent lyrics and music. Above all else is something that you will find yourself playing in full again and again.
The different styles blend together superbly to make what for me has turned from a 'take a chance' purchase, having not heard any Ayreon before, to one of my all-time favourites.
Go on, dip into your pocket and get yourself a classic.
