he's not back, he posted that in October. My mistake for quoting him, but I just wanted to point out that not everyone is an Ayreon fan. Big smile Maybe I did not do a great job at it. LOL
Sorry, I should have checked the date on FC's last post. Embarrassed Maybe he's still out delivering presents in time for Christmas. Smile
 
I'm definitely an Ayreon fan: I like every album they've ever made. Thumbs Up

^ Yes, I've listened to everything, up to and including The Theory of Everything, and they're all 5-star albums for me, and that's no Actual Fantasy. Thumbs Up

I can't think of a band more overhyped and overrated in the progressive metal genre. And I have listened to a ton of it.

Ayreon are my favourite Progressive Metal band by far, although in all honesty, I only know one other band in the Theater of Progressive Metal, and you can guess who that is. Wink

I agree that Ayreon are not THAT awesome, but I think the band have their own peculiar merits. Arjen is/seems like a very likeable person and a great professional, and that sincerity is nicely reflected through the works he creates. Ayreon also serve as sort of a bridge between the classic prog and modern prog, and that makes the band very valuable IMHO.

I wasn't judging Arjen's character Confused How did you get that from my post? Confused

There is an annoying overhype around the band and my problem is that this project/band has become so predictable, I don't get it why people still get hyped or excited. 

The band was valuable a few albums ago, before it all got predictable.

Yes, although it's perfectly true that I only know two Progressive Metal bands, I generally prefer female-fronted Symphonic Metal, with the exception of Ayreon and Dream Theater, obviously. Smile

two very different things symphonic metal and progressive metal. Progressive metal is quite diverse, symphonic metal on the other hand is not, the scene is overflooded and predictable already. Few albums really stand out.

I didn't say or mean anything like that. That was just about my brief take on Ayreon's merits, which has a lot to do with Arjen's personality IMO.

I absolutely liked The Theory of Everything a lot, because it provides me with an intense feeling of bittersweet nostalgia. I was/am far from being blown away by it, nor did I find it unpredictable or exhilerating. It is just very emotional and touching for me. Smile
