When John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess came together on June 10th 2000 to play material that would eventually end up on An Evening With, it was as if the mythical creatures of the netherworld convened in a distant castle, in a distant land, ruled and careened by evils and magic never to be seen or repeated about since, mixing knowledge through some arcane, esoteric language known as the sweet, sweet music of Mr. Petrucci and Mr. Rudess. As this meeting raged on the god Zeus descended from on high to preside over this impromptu collection of the greatest minds and performers of the galaxies and worlds past and present. When I hear this recording I shed a tear, for I was there at that grand table as Centaurs and Wilderbeasts danced in a feverish and mystical gallop as Zeus slapped his ample hands together, perfectly in time. We drank wine mulled from the sweetest nectar in chalices made from gold and precious rubies, dancing until morning in a trance that was as much groove as it was magic. This music takes me there. It makes me question whether Petrucci and Rudess are in fact human, robots, aliens from another galaxy, or mythical beings from a kingdom of yore. Wisened beyond their years, this music will change your life forever, for the better and hopefully transport you into another dimension that, with any luck, you will never return from again. Good Luck.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
