Great progressive masterpiece from Arjen Lucassen. A must!

From: ark Date: November 15, 2004 at 4:55
you r damned right, kim!

From: Kim Jackie Date: November 17, 2004 at 13:40
Actually one of the best prog albums this year. Personally I think Pain of Salvation - Be (if you don't have it yet - buy it now!!) is the best prog album this year but Human Equation isn't far behind. Why there isn't Pain Of Salvation in here?

From: Max Date: November 20, 2004 at 17:58
Actually, if you like Prog, mostly modern prog (I think BE is more modern, even thoguh I only read reviews for it) get Fates Wanring's FWX. Great album.

From: Date: November 30, 2004 at 6:59
sorry, the fwx is far behind ayreon - my opinion. i didnt here BE yet. but i ll have an ear on it. promissed.

Excelente trabajo, maravilloso sonido, extraordinarias voces, increibles arreglos, magnífica instrumentación, brillantes composiciones... Un genio este Arjen

From: AUGUSTO Date: April 25, 2005 at 6:54
BIG, BIG, BIG. Lucassen lo ha hecho de nuevo!!!!!!! Album GALACTICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alguna duda de que Arjen es un genio?? Escuchen esto, es algo de otra galaxia

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 29, 2007 at 22:37
Me parecio un buen album aunque monotomo en algunas partes.En lo particular me parecio mejor el album "Into the Electric Castle".Sin embargo la lista de musicos que aparecen en el album es alucinante(aunque para Ayreon esto no sea nada nuevo).6/10

From: MiGoFungus Date: January 18, 2010 at 15:33
A decent release that sounds like countless other prog metal bands. nothing new or groundbreaking.
