3 stars I'm not related that well with the original songs, so I hear it as with virgin ears, not comparing the album with nothing else... So, everything is fine with me, if you can handle a billion notes per second for an entire album, then maybe you can either...

The selection of songs he decide to cover are really odd... you know, pure master songs from the masters of prog rock... I found that the covers are great, the guess players are at the level of the Wizard, but sometimes I get bored with overplayed solos, here and there you get pure billion notes from guess guitar players or Jordan himself with his trademark keyboard-guitar- sound... I stil enjoy it... but to be honest, I think the piano medley is the real thing here... I truly believe jordan should take only a piano and quit with the synths... I know comparisons are bad, but Kevin Moore's sounds were better and fit great with the rock sound of DT (and those are 15 years dated...!!!) but being fair, I would say the album on it's own is great... as someother reviewer said, great fun, but lack of creativity... at the end that is something unfair because you know is a covers album... so I think we don't suppose to expect a lot more...

Is a good album to show that keyboards can rock as well as guitars... and to testify the limits of the instrument... is difficult to reach this amount of technic and quality of playing... so... my advise is that you should give it a try...

My favorites: "Dance in a Volcano" and "Jordan Rudess piano Medley"...
