5 stars Ok....this is my first taste of Ayreon.....based upon some of the early reviews on this site, I decided to check it out for something new.

However, this album will lead me to check out more of their efforts.

During my first listening, I was a bit distracted by the use of the different singers, especially since I don't pay much mind to the lyrics. But I was drawn in by the overall production. Well this may not be the most complex playing you'll ever hear, the arrangements and engineering displays the music and playing very well. Each play of the CD's dragged me in further and further, especially disk 2.

My favorite track would be the final track 'The Final Extinction' thanks to it's rhythmic pulse of the bass and drums and the interplay between the melodies and singers.

I haven't heard any of their past efforts, but I'll be looking for them.
