Review by King of Loss
3 stars This is another one of Ayreon's Singles/EPs and the main song here exemplifed is Loser. This is however not the album version, which I must say is not one of Ayreon's better songs. Arjen shoulda have put the album version onto this.

The other 3 songs are not really especially special, with all of them being very mediocre when not with the album.

Buy Ayreon albums instead of buying these good, but non-essential singles/Eps!

2 stars Besides Day Eleven : Love, this is the other single of The Human Equation, Loser is the main song here, but i have to tell you that this is not the same version as the album, this version is shorter and with a different arrangement, but anyway its quite similar, i prefer The Human Equation version. How you gonna see me now is a good song, but like the other is onlya complement for the single, Int the Black Hole is a live song, with the great voice of Irene Jansen, and Castle Hall is the last song of this single, the most beautifl of these singles are the cover , the songs are good i know, but we ca enjoy 15 minutes only if we are fans. This is not the best single i ever listened, thats why thi doesnt deserves to be more than 2 stars. Its good but only for collectors.
