4 stars Actually, I'm not a big fan of Derek Sherenian or his Planet X. When he was in Dream Theater still I'm not impressed with his playing. I prefer Kevin Moore and Jordan Rudess. But... when I listen to this album, wow, the music blows me away. So bombastic! His collaboration with Yngwie -who?- Malmsteen, Al diMeola, Steve Lukather, Tony Franklin, Billy Sheehan, Zakk Wylde and Simon Phillips have delivered "nutritious" music. A brilliant composition of fusion and prog rock/metal. You did a great job, Mr. Sherenian! If you can keep your good work like this in the future, maybe I could fall in love with your music. Definitely 4 stars for this album!
