4 stars When you listen to one of Arjen Lucassen's Ayreon albums, you are in for an amazing treat: It is like going to the theater and experiencing an epic science fiction movie.

He immerses you into a story with sound effects and hard-driving rock with influences from Pink Floyd, Genesis, Dream Theater, Alan Parsons, and Metallica, depending on the song you're listening to.

And it all flows together in an amazing seamless story. Ayreon's best album remains The Human Equation, but this album is still an amazing accomplishment.

Especially good are the haunting vocals of Jonas Renkse of the band, Katatonia. His contribution makes this album, in my opinion, as he sings on "Liquid Eternity" and "Waking Dreams."
