3 stars Second album for Arjen Lucassen's AYREON and this one is just another great effort as their debut...This is not metal to the bone as someone expects from a prog metal you can get superb atmosphere,lots of spacey fillings and effects, some emotional acoustic guitars along with nice vocal lines, a rather keyboard/effects driven album that is enjoyable from the very start to the very end...Imagine I would say a more spacey version of early SHADOW GALLERY...A memorable effort,maybe a little bit weaker than their first album,but certainly a good addition to any prog collection...
