Title: Ayreon
Post by: the shredmaster on March 02, 2008, 12:22:58 PM
Seriously awesome music. Into the Electric Castle, The Dream Sequencer, The Human Equation and 0101101 are all fantastic albums.

Arjen is a mastermind. I loved Human Equation (James LaBrie + Akerfeldt = Win), and I got really into 0101101. That album and Renkse vocals got me into Katatonia. Also liked hearing PoS singer there too.

There's no song like Day Twelve: Trauma  :metal

I loved THE in the beginning, now I'm a bit bored by it... I have to be in a Ayreon-mood to listen to it, it often gets too cheesy for me :P But when I first listen to one of them (I have 4, I believe), I like it. Have to admire how he gets all those musicians/vocalists to join in and how good he makes them sound. (LaBrie on THE? WOW!)

Fiancé calls the new album OLOLLOL, by the way. Saw it in the record shop today, and we both went like "Oh, look, there's ollollollol, lol!"
..and people think we're weird?

the few Ayreon songs I've heard have been underwhelming

The Human Equation is a masterpiece.  01011001 is so far my favorite album of 2008, and the only thing with a chance to dethrone it in the near future is O3 Pt 3 (I'm still waiting for mine to arrive, sadly).

Lucassen is a friggin' genius.  End of story.

Arjen Anthony Lucassen is my single favorite composer. End of Story.

The man has wrote such a range of awesome music, has brought the best out of so many musicians, has been so consistently good... he's just amazing.

I love The Human Equation.

As far as 10101001010100010101000 goes... I think he could've use less cheese.

I love Arjen and all, but c'mon... he's like, the KING of cheese.

I haven't yet really got into 01011001 yet, probably because of the lack of lots of familiar vocals, except the Katatonia guy. Still, I'm sure it's awesome, just my silly mind has not keyed into this fact yet ;)

(side note: The Human Equation is my favourite concept album ever.)

I love into the electric castle and the dream sequencer; I'm not too happy with the 0101101, but I guess I need to listen too it more often to get into it; but some o3pt3 keeps blocking my sound system all the time  ;)

I love 01011001, it's my 3rd favourite behind ITEC and The Dream Sequencer.

Arjen is one of the reasons I'm proud to be Dutch   ;)
I *love* THE  :) Besides James and Magnus Ekwall, I really love Irene Janssen's vocals on this one  :tup

Quoted For Truth.

That song contains what is probably my favorite vocal moment EVER.  I love Akerfeldt's little harmony with himself near the beginning, right before breaking into the "You're Better Off DEAD!" growling.  Both beautiful and power.  And pretty badass, too. :metal

I just figured that part of the song "the truth is in here" on 0101100 sounds just like bon jovi's blaze of glory..

any thoughts on that ???

Reminds me of when I first heard "I walk beside you"

I'm just posting because I happen to be listening to The Dream Sequencer at the moment.

once you get past the cheese, you can really appreciate the amount of work he puts in the albums to involve a bazillion musicians.  :metal i love 01000101011010000
