4 stars Rhythm of time from 2004 issued at same Magna Carta is somehow a more excentric release then Feeding the wheel, here Rudess playes and explore lots of sythesizer sounds, whwre he can really show us what he can do with this instrument. A perfect example is Insectsamongus avery jazzy dominated by Rudess's keyboards, but aswell some good druming here. The album is quite more edgy with heavy parts more accentuated then on Feeding the wheel, the lighter moments almost gone taken place by some more elaborated and complex arrangements. The album overall is ok, even great but I think is little to long. Aagain some top notch musicians involved here, among others Vinnie Moore, Joe Satriani or Steve Morse. Alternating heavy sections like first 3 pieces with more mellower passages as on Beyond tomorrow, Rudess come with a good album but I don't think is fantastic and is less intresting, at least for me then Feeding the wheel. I like very much the pieces Bar Hopping With Mr Picky , What four or Ra, very smooth and energic tune full of great moements. Very good are the keybords heere, experimental passges that goes very well in this context. IMO I find Rudess in his solo albums more intresting then most of DT albums he appear (with exception Scene from a memory), here he has more space , the music is jazzier and is more enjoyble to my ears, then the same keyboards passages he offers on some DT albums. Let's say 4 stars , not really a four but this time I'll go with this rate.
