Timeline 3CD plus DVD (2008)

TIMELINE follows the thirteen-year evolution of the Ayreon sound from the 1995 debut The Final Experiment to the release of 01011001 in 2008. Its 3 CDs contain 32 essential Ayreon tracks plus one brand new song recorded especially for this release — almost 4 hours of music!

The DVD features nearly two hours of selected released and unreleased video clips, behind-the-scenes featurettes, 5.1 mixes, and live performances of Ayreon tracks (Star one and Stream of Passion versions).

Comes with a timeline poster illustrating the Ayreon universe and 56-page booklet containing many new photos, all lyrics, and notes on the story. The cover is a specially commissioned painting by traditional Ayreon cover artist, Jef Bertels (official site).
