Now I already introduced you to Arjen Lucassen a fortnight ago, and as always I must follow up on my promises – and that involves later showing a sample of Ayreon. This track is from his latest album, “The Human Equation” – a 20-track “prog rock opera” about a man who on the edge of death faces his emotions as personifications and to understand what has happened to him. It’s an awesomely epic album with a great story, with each track representing a different day of his experience. Day 11 is “Love”, one of my favourite tracks from the album. It also has the added bonus of featuring the vocals of Heather Findlay from Mostly Autumn (see previous post). Ayreon is currently producing his next album with a variety of vocalists, and just yesterday it was announced the drums and first vocalist had been completed.
