Having listened to Wheel of Time (Rudess' first release), I can't say I was exactly thrilled with the type of music he played on that CD. So, for me to buy this CD... well - it was somewhat of a gamble. I definitely do not regret this purchase.
Being familiar with Rudess' work because of Dream Theater, I was interested in hearing what his work would sound like outside the confines of the band. The arrangements presented here are very well structured (to be expected by anyone trained at Julliard), and also have nice dynamics and contrast.
The CD has plenty of quirky sounds, patches, and music. So, if you like that, you'll be content with parts of this CD. Overall, I would say the disc is an all-out rocker (give or take a few odd-ball sections).
My favorite thing about this CD, as with all of Rudess' works, is trying to fathom how one individual can pull off so many things at once. His ability is bar-none... and this CD is a good testament to that.
Something else that sort of struck me as odd is that there are vocals on this CD. I don't know why that's particularly odd to me; maybe because I expected all instrumental music. Anyhow, there is certainly nothing wrong with the vocals. They just caught me off guard. The vocals are on a more mellow song, and certainly add a nice touch.
Lastly, I feel like I need to comment on the track "Bar-Hopping with Mr. Picky" [track 5]. This track is, in my opinion, the oddest of the lot. That's really all I can think to say about it, as it defies explanation. Not particularly one of my favorites on the disc.
4-star rating because of some of the quirky aspects of the disc. Aside from that, 5 all the way!!
