AYREON -- THE HUMAN ECUATION


The Human Equation es el sexto álbum de la banda Ayreon, formada en 1994 por el multi-instrumentista y compositor holandés Arjen Lucassen, y con varios artistas invitados para cada álbum. Es una banda experimental, que combina no solo heavy metal, sino además música clásica, folk, y otras tantas; por lo cual se lo considera un género totalmente diferente a todo lo conocido. La mayoría de los albums de Ayreon, se consideran Óperas de Rock, porque cada álbum contiene historias complejas, donde cada uno de los personajes es representado por una única voz. En este disco tiene invitados a James LaBrie (Dream Theater), Mikael Äkerfeldt (Opeth), Eric Clayton (Saviour Machine) y Devin Townsend.

La historia del álbum ronda la idea de un renacer psicológico, y cuenta la historia de un hombre, antes de entrar en estado de coma luego de un accidente de autos, confrontado con su pasado, sus emociones, atrapado en su propia mente.

The Human Equation is the sixth album by Arjen Anthony Lucassen, released under the name Ayreon. It was released on May 25, 2004. As with other Ayreon albums, it features guest appearances from several musicians previously unrelated to the project, including James LaBrie of Dream Theater, Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, Eric Clayton of Saviour Machine, and Devin Townsend, performing music arranged and written by Lucassen.


The album explores the idea of psychological rebirth, and follows the story of a man who, after falling into a coma following a car accident, is confronted with his past, his emotions, and his current situation as he lays trapped inside his own mind. The circumstances surrounding the accident are mysterious, as the man ("Me", portrayed by James LaBrie) ploughed into a tree on a deserted road in broad daylight. Following this, he slips into a twenty-day coma, with each day represented by a single song. Each song follows a slightly different format, though there are major common themes, such as the presence of Me's manifest emotions in his dream world (including Fear portrayed by Mikael Åkerfeldt, Reason portrayed by Eric Clayton, and Pride portrayed by Magnus Ekwall); the presence of Me's Wife (Marcela Bovio) and Best Friend (Arjen Anthony Lucassen) at his bedside; and the past events that Me is forced to reflect on.
