Editorial Reviews

Arjen Lucassen has again assembled an all star supporting cast for what will become the true magnum opus by Ayreon, the rock opera 01011001 . It is the story of planet Y (which is the album title in binary computer code) and the struggle for emotional survival in an age of increased technological dependence.

Assisting in the storytelling are some of rock s major luminaries including Ty Tabor (King s X), Michael Romeo (Symphony X), Tomas Bodin (The Flower Kings),Derek Sherinian (Planet X), Ed Warby (Gorefest), Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian), and Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering).

Available as 2CD version, a Special Edition with bonus DVD and as a Ltd. Ed. 2-CD with bonus DVD version in high class DVD box packaging.

Very recently I picked up my first Ayreon album to sample it and very much liked it.
Peter Graf
I don't have a regular CD of this album to compare it too, but the song does sound better on websites that allow you to listen to the full-length song.
Librarian_of_Doom
For me this album fits into the musical void between Human Equation and Flight of the Migrator.

My first encounter with the music of Arjen Lucassen was his last release, THE HUMAN EQUATION. I picked that CD up solely because James LaBrie of Dream Theater was singing on it. I was immediately impressed with the depth of story, the virtuosity of musicians and the masterful way that Lucassen pulled so many top flight people together to make, what amounts to a prog-rock opera. It was one of the best purchases I made a few years ago. I guess the only complaint I had at the time was the growling on a few of the tracks...a particular musical style I've personally never really appreciated.

It was with great anticipation that I bought 01011001. I wasn't sure if it would be a continuation of the Human Equation story or something completely different. This time around, it's a brilliant and powerful science fiction epic of a grand scale. I understand the story is related to his previous album UNIVERSAL MIGRATOR, PT 1-2. (Looks like I have another CD to buy.)

I was blown away with this album from the first moment. The assembled musicians are perfectly cast, and the music is incredible! I was expecting a good album, but got a great one. This is the must-buy album of the year for any and all progressive rock fans.

I purchased the Special Edition box set with a DVD included. I have to say that the "Beneath The Waves" video is amazing and wonderful to watch, but much of the rest of the DVD is dross. There is a tedious video showing interviews with many of the singers and musicians, talking about how they met Arjen, or how Arjen emailed them, or how Arjen picked them up at the airport, or how great it is to work with Arjen.....I got really bored with it really quickly. Unless you are really into that kind of thing, I can easily recommend that you save the extra $10 or so, and just pick up the music.

But you must, must, must get the music...you won't be sorry!

Arjen Lucassen, who by this point must be considered as one of the best concept album writers of all time, has managed to capture the best elements of "Into The Electric Castle" and "The Universal Migrator" with this stellar (literally) new release, "01011001". Using a vocal cast just as renowned as the one on "The Human Equation", this Ayreon album tells the story of a planet and a population close to the edge due to increasing reliance on technology and medicine.

Arjen skipped out on the usual introductory narration this time, and opens the album up with "The Age of Shadows", possibly the heaviest Ayreon opener yet. Then, the album takes a melancholy turn, reminiscent of the softer songs on fellow prog champions Porcupine Tree's newest album "Fear of a Blank Planet".

Those who missed the instrumental section on "The Human Equation" will be glad to see their return with "0101101". The production values are closer to "The Human Equation" than anything else, but the songs are written more in the style of "Electric Castle" and "Migrator", with longer vocal parts and long instrumentals. Thanks to the aid of many top-gun progressive musicians, Symphony X's Michael Romeo and ex-Dream Theater's Derek Sherinian among them, "0101101" should not be a disappointment to the progressive fans who were hooked with "Electric Castle" or "Migrator".

The vocal performances are strong as usual. That's to be expected, though, with the frontmen of acts like Blind Guardian, Pain of Salvation, and King's X on the roster. My only complaint is that there are so many vocalists that none get to steal the spotlight for long. Fan of the bands Arjen plucked from will hear just enough of their favorite vocalists to be satisfied, and no more.

Firstly: do NOT hesitate to shell out the extra dough for this deluxe limited edition. It is VERY worth it, you get amazing packaging, a longer booklet, and it's just generally very cool. Enough of that, on to the album. In my opinion this is the greatest Ayreon album to date. The only possible way this album could have been better was if Russell Allen had parts on it. However, we do get an incredible solo by Michael Romeo. But Russell aside, you get Simone from Epica, Daniel from Pain of Salvation, Tom from Evergrey, Jorn Lande, and a slew of fantastic instrumentalists and other vocalists that'll blow your mind. This album goes straight to the top of my favorite concept albums list, second only to the mighty Scenes From A Memory, by Dream Theater. Every song on this album is great...not a single song gets skipped everytime I spin this album. And really, there's something for everyone here...something heavy, something lighter, something extremely melodic, something more "chuggy"...the album really runs the full spectrum of what great rock should be, and its no surprise when you consider Arjen's fantastic orchestration/arranging and the brilliant artists he brought together for this release. A must have for any fan of concept albums or progressive rock!
