To be fair, I'm more of an Awake fan than I&W... but, yeah, fair assessment of my review. Smiley  I can't really stand Jordan. Wink

!Blasphemy! *waves burning pitchfork*

Only kidding Smiley  But what don't you like about Jordan? I'm a fairly recent DT fan so I've yet to get attached to his predecessors. Smiley

Excellent photos, by the way!

Thanks!

Re: Jordan, I was always a Kevin Moore fan, and I think Awake is their best album.  After his departure (right after it was recorded), he started doing his own stuff (Chroma Key, and eventually O.S.I. with Jim Matheos of Fates Warning).  I think I dig CK & OSI more than any DT since Kevin's departure.  Re: Derek Sherinian, I liked him.  He was a good rock keyboardist.  Re: Jordan, he's very technical, but lacks a lot of emotion.  And when I've seen him live, I get really irk'd about his tone.  I dunno... it's all subjective.

A Canon DSLR with a 15x optical zoom (60x digital).  I had a photo pass; so I was able to be right up front for the first 3 songs.  My camera is far from professional grade... it's basically a point-and-shoot with a bigger zoom.  The lighting usually sucks in Roseland; so that's why most of mine that were B&W turned out better than the Color shots.  i wish I had a better camera, but I make do with what I've got...

Mike already said it many times, there won't be a DVD filmed this tour. Too bad.

Pfff

Don't get me started on the DT's keyboardists..LOL

Dan hits it right in the nail. My favorite DT album is Awake. Kevin's lyrics and playing was not flashy but it completed the song in some way. Derek's playing was also great and he is probably my favorite keyboard player right now. His solo stuff is excellent and features many great players (both in his solo stuff and in Planet X). Derek can combine the best of both worlds: atmosphere and technicality. Falling into Infinity is a great example of this. While Jordan is probably the best keyboard player in the world, I do think sometimes he just pushes it with his solos and wankery (I dig his solo stuff a lot more than his playing in DT). He can do atmospheric playing (listen to Listen, Resonance, Secrets of the Muse, etc...) but unfortunately the producers (JP and MP) don't use this playing anymore.

I tend to see this "keyboard comparison" as DT stages. Each one has it's own pro's and cons' but I still love the music. I love one era more than the others but that's just a question of taste and will vary person to person..

Fair arguments, with extra points for the amusing use of "wankery".

I've never listened to JR's solo stuff - have you a recommendation for where to start?

LOL. Almost spilled the water in my mouth for the extra points I used..LOL

Well, it depends. Rhythm of Time, Feed The Wheel and the Rudess-Morgenstein Project are the ones I listen to the most. The other ones I listed (Secrets of the Muse, Resonance...) are more of the atmospheric/piano like stuff. It's great stuff to listen when you want to relax. I think of those albums was written for one of Jordan's friends who was recovering from heart surgery or something in that vein. Rhythm of Time and Feed the Wheel are the most song oriented albums. Some great players in those two: Terry Bozzio, Rod Morgenstein, Joe Satriani, Kip Winger...The RM Project is more fusion oriented. I would say start with Feed the Wheel and Rhythm of Time and RMP. His last one Notes from a Dream are piano only Dream Theater songs. Pretty cool to hear his piano versions of DT songs (mostly the slow ballad like DT songs). I would get this one as well. The Road Home (his next to last album) are Jordan versions of some of his favorite prog songs from Gentle Giant, Genesis and others and features Neal Morse, Steven Wilson, Marco Sfogli, Ricky Garcia, and I think Rod on drums as well. I'm like this one but not as much as the ones I described before.
