2 stars i sew the names Yngwie Malmsteen, Al DiMeola, Zakk Wylde, and Billy Sheehan on this release, and i was sure its going to be awesome....GOD I WAS WRONG!!!

this release is much heavier then his other releases, some times i like it, but its not one of this times. this album is not focusing on the keyboard, and its really surprising because after all its a solo album, i would say that its a good thing but the problem is that i feel that the other musicians just came, improvised something for 10 min, toke they money and left (and its probably what really happened) i feel like they give zero afford to this release. you can hear exactly witch player plays were, and the players are really different, so it gave the album some colors. but again, i feel that the afford from the other musicians was zero! if their is something good that i can say about this album is that Derek sounds great like all ways.
