There is a basic timeline included in the Ayreon 3CD/1DVD set, appropriately called Timeline
, but hell if I am going to try and recreate it here
I have been listening to this Ayreon set more lately and I still donít know what to make of it. Admittedly it is a lot to take in and a compilation might not be the best way to do it. Iím not a huge lyrical-analyst, so the oft-discussed cheesiness of the lyrics/themes donít bother me. I donít even have any remote idea what the hell is going in the Ayreon saga. But I donít care.
There seems to be lots of good music there, but nothing that really grabs me. It makes for pleasant listening at work, but a few songs will go by and I will think back and not remember anything about what I just heard. Normally after this many listens Iíve made some sort of decision on how I feel about the music, good or bad.
