2 stars ehem... a lot of guitar stuff, nothing new actually, very well crafted, very well executed (no criticism towards that) however, is the same sound that he uses in DREAM THEATER. To be honest i think this great guitar player are promoting this record beacuse of his inclusion on the G3 tour, a tour based on show-off and guitar-chops... so read my lips: this is a record for the fans of PETRUCCI and the fans of guitar heroes. Every single cut actually is very old as far as i know, songs composed 10 years ago or so, but that has the chance to see the light of day recently, if you are a fan of DREAM THEATER, you will find out that there's an acoustic LIVE version of LOST WITHOUT YOU from some of the official bootlegs/fan cd's. The key point is that this kind of record needs no review after all, because it is an offering or rendition resulting from an 'itch' from the artist to escape from his main band and create a few pieces from his own personal view (a view that of course is like a trademark nowadays) Avoid it if you're searching something new or inspiring, get it if you want to hear some good guitar oriented music. peace
