This could be called one of those "super" group recordings. Three of the members currently make up the great progressive band "Dream Theater". Add the omnipresent bass of Tony Levin and you have something very very very unique. What makes this "super" group cd good is that they checked their egos at the door and these guys sound like a band. For all you euipment masters. This Cd has it all. Chapman Stick, Electric Upright Bass, 7-string guitar, keys galore, and drums. The highlight is the interplay between John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess who copies lines at mind blazing speed. The song that sticks out is the close to 30minutes improv. One take, its over the top.
