This is pretty stale. After I've heard The Human Equation, nothing he's done can ever be interesting
to me as that one is, mostly because the concepts around most albums are pretty samey and not
interesting after you've heard the best of it - The Human Equation.

Also, I can't really tell how you heard Cynic and In Flames in The Parting, it's pretty far-fetched at
best.

I think the best thing this guy can do right about now is work on actually making these albums into
musicals. I'd love to see a Human Equation play.

I'm not saying it isn't listenable, it's alright music, but the thing that bothers me is if you've
heard 1 Ayreon - the concept is the same throughout. Listening to this or the binary one when you have
The Human Equation is like watching The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions when you have the original
one. It's fun once or twice, afterwards you just kinda realise it doesn't live up to it.

For me is the weakest work in the Ayreon catalogue. The production is great, the guest artist are fenomenal but sound very flat...no originality here.

The chioce of singers is one of the biggest flaw of this record. No one stand out like past releases (Russel allen, Jorn Lande, Damian Wilson etc).

@StormChaser dude this album's concept is completely separate from the last Ayreon one

Well I thought I'd left that kinda unclear, I meant the musical concept of having a bunch of singers, doing an epically long and over-the-top rock opera with a certain storyline. It gets boring after you've heard the best one (and even that one's cheesy, but ignorable due to amazing musicianship).

Oh ok, in that case I see your point but I think that he has enough variation between albums to keep things interesting. I always loved the little uses of growling vocals that he scattered throughout his earlier albums like a surprise; I was disappointed that none were on here.
