5 stars Great album...

Without doubt this is one of the best albums in Ayreon's career, totally enjoyable, with good songs and others absolutely awesome, the work contains different influences specially from psychedelic/space rock (bands like Pink Floyd and Hawkwind among others) also is near to classic rock influence (in a Led Zeppelin way, maybe) and of course the heavy metal is present in all sounds of this one. Great singers have been called to be part of this project such as; Russel Allen, Ralf Scheepers, Bruce Dickinson and Ian Perry and others.

I would like to mention some track that I like from this album:

Chaos: (intro), in my opinion is possibly one of two or three best track of the album, an exercise of technique and power. Amazing track to open an excelent work!!!

To The Quasar: a mix of progressive rock and a little bit of psychedelic sounds, but in a present context, good song.

Into The Black Hole: I'm going to say three words to express all sensations from this song: Bruce Dickinson's performance... wow, this guy sold his soul to the devil to have that voice.

and possibly the last one... The New Migrator, very good ending track and express the end of the story in a good way, good performance by Ian Parry.

The universal migrator Part II: flight of the migrator not only is one of my favourites Aeryon's albums, but also one of the most enjoyables works of progressive metal that I heard until now.

This album is maybe along with "The Human Equation", Ayreon's albums that I've joined more.
