Derek Sherinian

"Planet X"

The Story
Fuse Magazine reviewer David Dorkin gushes about "Planet X", Derek Sherinian's first solo CD after Dream Theater, ""Planet X" is one of the most ambitious and powerful progressive CDs to come out in 1999. The musicians are all extremely able: Sherinian on keys, Brett Garsed on guitar, the rhythmically amazing Virgil Donati on drums, and veteran bassist Tony Franklin. All but one of the tunes were written by Donati and Sherinian. Sherinian's keyboard sounds fill out the arrangements in style while rhythmic surprises abound (especially in the majestic opening suite, "Atlantis"). There is even an over the top shuffle in the tradition of Cobham's "Quadrant 4," along with enough tight unison passages to please any fan of this genre. Recommended." Reviewer Eric Aaron added, "A slightly warped powerhouse of an instrumental album that, like Jeff Beck or Joe Satriani records, shreds from time to time but doesn't degenerate into a pure technical showcase."
