Anyone else here listen to Ayreon
It seems like the kind of music people here might listen to, due to the stories told by each album, all of which are conspiracy/paranormal related.
The plot for each album is linked below:
The Final Experiment (1995)
A group of scientists from the future send a message back in time.
Into the Electric Castle (1998)
A group of people taken from various places in Earth's history are gathered together in a virtual world.
Universal Migrator Part 1: The Dream Sequencer
The last human alive is living on Mars, and uses a device to visit his past.
Universal Migrator Part 2: Flight of the Migrator
The last human alive travels further back in time to the beginning of the universe.
The Human Equation (2004)
A man mysteriously crashes into a tree in his car in broad daylight, and spends the next 20 days in a coma.
This album ties all the previous albums together, and shows you that each story was just a part of a huge alien conspiracy.
After listening to the last album, 01011001, you begin to understand that each album was just one part of an even bigger story.
An ancient alien race that was once biological is regretting it's decision to become artificial. To get back part of what they lost, they decide to
create a new biological race on another planet (us) so that they can once again experience emotions, this time through them.
I recommend you give this project a listen. By all means get a preview of their stuff on Youtube or Last.fm, or whatever site you like to use, but
bear in mind that listening to one song out of context will not make the larger story apparent to you.
Also bear in mind that the style of music radically changes from one song to the next, so don't just listen to one song and then think to yourself
"hmm, that's their style then" because it probably isn't.
Thanks for reading.
