4 stars If you hate bombastic neo-prog, 80s-esque metal, and cheesy Wakeman-like concept albums, then you should stay far away from Ayreon. But I happen to like all those things. It's almost a guilty pleasure, but this is a very fun album. Unusual for an Ayreon album, this album features multiple singers "playing" the same character. Highlights include "The Banishment", "Sail Away to Avalon", and "Computer Reign". Lucassen sings on three songs, and they are all very good. I like his voice better than some of the people he gets to guest, it's a shame he doesn't sing more often. If you want "serious art" look elsewhere, but this is certainly a fine addition to any prog rock collection.
