Ayreon hodnotím dosť vysoko v prog. štýle a dlhodobo ich aj sledujem. Pritom moje spoznávanie kapely bolo v minulosti dosť vlažne a nič nenasvedčovalo tomu, že si ich v budúcnosti takto obľúbim. Ayreon je o výbornej hudbe a špičkových hlasoch od hosťujúcich spevákov/speváčok, zároveň o pestrosti, pričom sú aj ľahko rozpoznateľní (má svoj štýl). Svoj Prog. Metal dopĺňa o folkové, elektronické a rock -ové prvky, čím hudba stále dokáže baviť a prechádzať cez rôzne nálady.
Arjen Anthony Lucassen opäť spolupracuje so svojím dvorným bubeníkom - Ed Warby (ex-Gorefest, ex-Vuur, ex-Hail of Bullets). Zároveň okrem tvorby hudby má na starosti rôzne hudobné nástroje, ako aj produkciu albumu (konkrétne 2 CD-čka).
Album podporilo veľké množstvo známych vokalistov: Tobias Sammet (Avantasia, Edguy), Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian), James LaBrie (Dream Theater), Tommy Karevik (Kamelot, Seventh Wonder), Simone Simons (Epica), Floor Jansen (Nightwish), Russell Allen (Symphony X, Allen - Lande, Adrenaline Mob), Nils K. Rue (Pagan's Mind), Michael Eriksen (Circus Maximus), Tommy Giles Rogers (Between the Buried and Me), Zaher Zorgati (Myrath), Michael Mills (Rituals), ako aj doprovodné zbory.
Z hudobníkov, ktorí podporili album spomeniem: Mark Kelly (Marillion) - klávesy, Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big, Racer X), Maaike Peterse (Kingfisher Sky) - cello, Joost van den Broek (ex-After Forever, ex-Star One), Guthrie Govan (GPS, ex-Asia),

좋기만 하구먼 ㅎㅎㅎ 전작들처럼 우주느낌은 아니네요 ㅎㅎ

루카센의 작가적 상상력, 창작력, 그리고 깊이를 계측할수 없는 감성은 이미 여려차례의 걸작들을 남겼고, 08년도 01011001의 프리퀄인 본 작품 또한 명성에 걸맞는 기발한 이야기를 이어나가며, Ayreon 특유의 대체 불가능한, 단순 청취가 아닌 체험하는듯한 지적 경험은 여전히 진한 감동으로 다가온다.
