Petrucci showcase a lot of his shredding abilities in this album, but he doesn’t forget to do it in the form of sophisticated progressive compositions, and that’s what’s good about this album.

It is all this really is Don’t get me wrong though, the solo’s are Dream Theater esque, meaning he is hitting the right notes, but he is constantly going way too fast and there is nothing new being offered at the table, which is the point I am trying to make here. As a big fan of Dream Theater, and especially as an admirer of the playing of John Petrucci, I was excited to hear of his solo album.

John’s work can also be heard on other notable acts like various years of the G3 project and the Explorer’s Club ‘Age of Impact’. Yes, nothing new in this types of albums, but all those parts and styles are really great peturcci and shows a lot of musicality sense and is touching, not only shredding.

Don’t go any further, Okay? You might have a buggy browser extension installed. The band sounds great too and saves jihn album from getting repetitive and too much “guitar player orientated”. Of course if you love shredding you’ll like this a lot, but this album is NOT all about shredding.

This is not good at all in my honest opinion. It contains all his trademarks: The correct track listing, without the aforementioned anomalies, is shown below.

The solo album is almost like an exorcism of his redundant, in a way.
