Elected is an Alice Cooper cover. The song was the idea of this false ‘rivalry’ between Ayreon and Avantasia. To put an end to it of sorts, Arjen and Tobias Sammet recorded this song together. It’s a fairly fun upbeat song, with added pokes to each using the other’s favorite singer in their projects. I’m not too big on the song itself though. E=MC² is originally from Ayreon’s latest album, and this version is a simpler acoustic guitar and vocal take. I actually am not fond of the song at all honestly.

Day Six: Childhood is from The Final Experiment album, in a piano and vocal version. This time however I actually like the original song, and this version is great as well. It’s honestly more emotional and stripped down, pretty great. This track is about the only reason I’d listen to this EP to be honest. Not much else going for it otherwise.

Final Rating: 4/10
