John Petrucci-Suspended Animation

what does everyone think of this album? i personally love it songwise and tonewise
highly recommend it to anyone who hasnt heard it, even if you're not a DT fan.

yes theres a good amount of shredding, but theres also some wonderful melodies and very tasteful playing. if you think petrucci's just a shredder with no soul, this cd could change your mind. definitely my favorite instrumental guitar CD along with Eric Johnson's Venus Isle!

i believe he's using a mesa road king w/ his custom ernie ball music man for this cd.

thoughts?...

Obviously a great talent.... but it's hard to see his name without thinking of this awesome video.

I love him but I thought the cd only had a few good parts. Obviously you disagree. Not very imaginative to me though. I cant stand guitar albums that just start with a rhythm and then just solo over that same rhythm.

I was hoping for more. Have you listened to him in Liquid Tension Experiment---songs like When The Water Breaks, and the like, are just fantastic...very epic and unique

im with you on liking LTE better than suspended animation. as far as instrumental stuff goes, nothing compares to LTE for me...but i still think suspended animation is great for what its doing(more poppy as opposed to progressive) good point though, LTE is the best!
