    Wow, that is beautiful! Looking forward to what this mastermind comes up with next. And my wish just came true! Tommy Karevik is singing on here! And alongside prog legends Steven Hackett, Rick Wakeman, and Keith Emerson?! This will be awesome indeed.

    One of the most awesome cover arts I've seen in a while, literally can't wait for this album!

    Ayreon's artist never disappoints!

    I wish they somehow included big printings of the corresponding cover art within the album.

    Everything is almost perfect so far, let's see what about the actual music

    Not impressed at first look. Was expecting a spacey cover, seems no space theme this time around, atleast in the cover.

    The title seems not to resemble the cover, but it's nevertheless beautiful.

    I can't see how this album could fail at being awesome. I'm already a huge fan of Lucassen, but damn, look at that guest list! I also happen to be a huge fan of almost every single guests. Especially Karevik, Emerson and Hackett. This is going to be legendary.

    The cover looks great, the guest musician aren't too bad either. Really interested to hear the album now.

    I'm not too enthusiastic about the guest musicians, but that cover art looks great (and of course the Greek letters (well, partly...)) that are used for the album title).

    In any case I'm looking forward to it seeing as Arjen never made a bad album so far.

    Anyone who bashes this is gonna get bashed.

    I like it. Looks like a brighter take on the 01011001 album cover

    That's exactly what I was thinking. It's like a more colourful version!
    My guess is that this means that it's going to be less heavy and more proggy than 01011001. A look at the guest list would suggest this as well!

    Also, holy shit Mike Mills!
    I'm calling it right now, that guy is going to be the underrated LEGEND of this album. I checked out Toehider, and he is possibly one of the BEST vocalists I have seen in a long time. The guy can do freaking Freddie Mercury, then switch to a James LaBrie style ballad voice, all while keeping his own amazing personality.
    This is the man to look out for guys!

    My gosh I love that album cover.

    The guest musician list is further evidence that Therion always has a better guest lineup than Ayreon.

    Mmmmmmmmmm, inspiring!

    My Album of the Year ... me hopes

    The misuse of Greek letters bothers me for some reason. Other than that it's nice.

    Yeah, it's kinda weird when you can read Greek and realise that there is only 1 vowel in the whole album title.

    Interesting cover. Looks like Sauron having a day at the beach.
