Originally with no artist noted, at the suggestion of the record label the subject was later detached, and used as the name for what was to be Dutch musician Arjen Anthony Lucassen 's Ayreon project. In Johnny + Mary - July Talk - Touch, Arjen moved to a new record label, Inside Out - with this move came re-issues of all the previous Ayreon releases, including The Final Experiment.
This re-issue includes a bonus CD featuring nine re-worked recordings of tracks or segments of tracks found on the original album with different singers and all acoustic instrumentation.
