@zticazzy I didn't do it yesterday, but today. Does that count? I know Ayreon from their first 3 albums, so I was very curious about this one. It's definitely interesting to hear what he has put together again, and which 'cast' he used for his project this time. So technically it's an impressive album. But it doesn't really get to me. I hear a lot of variation, a story that's been told, but musically it's a bit too much various ideas put together, sometimes missing a clear line. At least for me. While I love technical skills, and I really dig music which can blend together technical skills and great compositions, in the end for me it's always good song > technical skills. In the end that's why this album didn't seem to do much for me. But I can definitely understand why people would find this kind of music awesome. I have the same feeling about most albums that I know of Neal Morse. Not sure if that's something you like as well?
