3 stars I met Derek Sheriniam as a member of DREAM THEATER, and I'm sure, just like many other people. So, I wanted to find out what this sounds like. The first impression was pretty good. The beginning with Atlantis is quite easy to enjoy. The sound is very different from DREAM THEATER's, although there are important influences. I also find influences from KING CRIMSON. The album itself is a good piece of prog, sometimes closer to progressive metal, sometimes closer to fusion, and the keyboard dominates almost the whole album, in a perfect combination with the rest of the band. But I think there is a lack of ideas which could give more variety to the album. I'd say that it's a bit superficial, with little more to show after a good first appreciation. All in all, it's worthy of listen Atlantis and Space Martini.
