  • All of his albums are sort of similar, good, but not great (IMO). He usually has YJM and Zakk doing some guest spots. Luke was on one of them.  He does some cool covers like Edgar Winter's Frankenstein with Zakk and Star Cycle with Luke -- neither of which were as good as the originals (how could they be?).  But they were fun.
    In the midst of the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    I have Black Utopia . One track has Yngwie , Al DiMeola and Jerry Goodman's violin goin' at each other . The tunes with Zakk are lame but the first track is awesome .

    Derek is wailing on Chris Buck's PROGASAURUS CD . Thats the best stuff I've heard him do .

    Most of his solo records are good imo, but I think his Black Utopia album stands out.
    On that one Zakk, The Yng, Luke and AlDimeola handles the guitars, and the great Simon Phillips handles drums.

    His work with Planet X (with Tony MacAlpine and Virgil Donati) is also great, imo.
    I Love the "Live from Oz" album.

  • The Steve Stevens track was great. I was always kinda hesitant towards Sherinian because of the Dream Theater connection (never really got into them), but the guests on his albums are impressive to say the least.
