Format: Audio CD
I've recently 'discovered' Ayreon and purchased all the albums including the 2 excellent Star One projects.

It's been a fantastic journey supplied by a musical genious who finds excellent vocalists and musicians to compliment his albums.

Universial Migrator is the best of the lot, especially disc 1. As usual with Ayreon there is a theme to the album and it is very refreshing to hear high quality music with lyrics not all about love and heartbreak. Far from it in fact.

I cannot recommend this album highly enough. Part 2 is great and features outstanding vocalists such as Bruce Dickinson and Andi Deris (Helloween), and is heavier than part 1 and more suited to my general usual music taste.

However the mellower part 1 is absolutely mindblowing. Songs such as One Small Step, And The Druids Turn To Stone, Dragon On The Sea, to name just 3 highlights, take you through a journey of historical events in time which you will want to revisit again and again.

Fantastic album. Buy it...

This is a better value package now re-released as a double CD. Of a similar vintage to The Final Experiment and Into The Electric Castle, which I slighly prefer, and even better the more recent The Human Equation. You can hear the various 70's influences e.g. Beatles, Led Zep , but the blend is original. Top quality vocals, concept story line songs, nice compositions. If you enjoy the samples you can't go wrong, and you'll want the lot! Recommended .

Originally released as two single CDs, and now available as a double-disc package, this one was one of Ayreon's best projects.

I particularly like the music on the first CD (The Dream Sequencer) which is distinctly softer than the second, and is a real candidate (along with the Electric Castle) as being one of the best progressive albums of all time.

Ayreon has mustered a stellar supporting cast to help produce this project - Neal Morse to name just one.

Very highly recommended.

This album was bought for a friend, and so I have only been able to listen to a couple of tracks, but judging from those, I can safely say that this is yet another brilliant album from Arjen Anthony Lucassen which is outstanding and progressive. The songs are all well composed and performed, and the recording and effects are of an extremely high standard. Although similar in style to most of the other Ayreon albums, it is definately not 'samey'. The distinct Ayreon sound is kept, whilst Arjen manages to create a whole new and imaginative work at the same time. The story of 'The Universal Migrator' is full of creativity and grasps hold of the listener, dragging them right to the heart of the tales of the last human and their adventures using the dream sequencer. Personally, from what I have heard, I can find no fault with these albums whatsoever, and I would not think twice before recommending them to anybody else who may be considering buying them.

Arjen Anthony Lucassen is one of the most gifted musicians I have ever heard, The ensemble of musicians and vocalists on this double album is second to none, Bruce Dickinson singing Into the Black Hole is worth the price alone but you also have Edward Reekers, Floor Jansen, Lana Lane, Neal Morse, Damian Wilson, Andy Deris. Russell Allen and many many more all of whom fit their respective songs perfectly.

The music is truly magnificent the solos are stunning, the tunes lavish and majestic, My House On Mars, One Small Step, The Shooting Company of Captain Frans B. Cocq, Dragon On the Sea, And the Druids Turn to Stone, The First Man on Earth are all spine tingling and that's just disc one. Disc two begins with a track called Chaos and when Arjen starts to tear it up on guitar the title will suddenly dawn on you, it's frenetic and rip roaring. The album is absolutely outstanding I originally bought the two discs seperately over ten years ago and I have listened to it time and time again it's up there with Jeff Waynes War of the Worlds as a stunning work of genius, It really is that good.

For anyone who appreciates great music just buy it, you will not be disappointed.

When you get over the fact that Arjen is writing in a language that is not his natiuve tongue, and that the subject matter concepts are a bit schoolboyish, this is actually very enjoyable.

There are echoes of all sorts of infulences everywhere but all very well played and in many circumstances the construction of the music and sound outstrip the originators of the musical styles that are followed. Chord progressions and surprise turns in melody are very strong here. The variation in vocalists through the album is refreshing and if any vocal autotuning is used it is subtle and unintrusive.

Enjoy it for what it is!
