not dream theater
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 11/06/2009 23:11:13
This is a good album, however if you like the heavier, more progish stuff dream theater does then you would be disapointed. Its just accoustic and electric guitars with keyboards to boot. There is a good balance achieved between the two, all though there is more accoustic than i would have liked, i just want to hear john shred and as his solo album suspended animation (which has the mighty anthem glasgow kiss on it!) is only available off his website, this was what i bought to fill the void. Was worth it just for "in the moment" 7 plus minuets of pure petrucci brilliance! Awsum

Not Brilliant, But Not Bad
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/05/2007 22:35:02
Being a big Petrucci fan, I eargerly waited for this cd to arrive, alas when it arrived I couldn't help but feel disappointed. Not that it's a bad record by any means... It just doesn't feel as inspired as much of the other pieces from Dream Theater or Liquid Tension Experiment. It's still up there in the stratosphere next to most pop-acts, okay, all pop-acts.
It's great as an atmospheric sort of album, but it's rather hard to give this your undivided attention, especially due to there not being the steady rythym of drums to give it more drive [and yes I know Beethoven didn't have any drums, but that's just it, he keeps hold of your attention].
If you really, really like Dream Theater and especially John Petrucci and/or Jordan Ruddess, get this. I suggest you try their brilliant solo albums first, then get this. It's merely present for a greater appreciation of these great artists.
