Ayreon - "Actual Fantasy"

Ayreon - Actual Fantasy
1996, InsideOut

1. Actual Fantasy
2. Abbey of Synn
3. The Stranger From Within
4. Computer Eyes
5. Beyond the Last Horizon
6. Farside of the World
7. Back on Planet Earth
8. Forevermore
9. The Dawn of Man

For Ayreon's sophomore album, Arjen backs off from an epic story to present this album with nine songs each telling their own story. It's sill progressive rock but there's a lot more electronica in this one. That's neither bad nor good - it's just what it is. This is another Ayreon disc that I just don't frequent that often and I'm not sure why. It's not bad by any stretch of the imagination, it just doesnt' grab me right now. Maybe it'll grow on me...

Useless Fact: "Forevermore" is based off of The Neverending Story.
