Once again Steve Stevens nicely captures Jeff's style whilst adding enough of his own to make this another strong tune from the album. The final cut from Mythologyis the smouldering stomper, The River Song and is the only vocal offering on the album or in fact the only vocal performance on any of Derek's solo work. This is a heavy, riff orientated piece bringing thoughts of early Black Sabbathwith the vocal melody following the main guitar riff.
Mythology follows on nicely from where Black Utopia left off, which in turn served as a fitting sequel to Inertia. Having fully digested all three albums I have to conclude that Derek's music seems to be shifting towards the heavier side.
Not that this is bad thing - merely an observation. Well his playing is superb throughout and once again I take my hat off to the man for not dominating the album with his own abilities but allowing the gathered ensemble to make great music. Martien's Review Derek's fourth solo album hits the stores in early November and I can say that it maybe or better probably is his best CD Derek Sherinian - Mythology (CD far.
But you cannot just enjoy howling and screaming keys of Derek - this CD also features a lot of heavy and fast guitar stuff. Just listen to the amazing opener Day Of The Deadwhich is filled with great Derek Sherinian - Mythology (CD, magical solos and wonderful melodies; but most of all you can say about this track that it rocks like hell! The perfect opening song for this album and when you hear Derek using and "abusing" his keyboards I wonder why this guy ever left or had to leave??
Dream Theater. His solos are fast, heavy and most of all Derek Sherinian - Mythology (CD melodic, and that is why his solos on this CD remind me very strongly of the neo classical music of Album) band like Time Requiemfeaturing Richard Anderson as the keyboard wizard there. El Flamingo Suave shows funky, jazzy and Latin musical themes; the acoustic guitar and the "vocals" make this track the odd one out.
Goin' To Church is a real guitar track; a song with a mind-boggling melody, heavenly solos, in other words, the absolute goose bum song on this album. Should I go on, or have I already convinced you that you should buy this CD directly?
If, not, check out the rest of the album by yourself and find out that Derek has done it again, but then even better than before. Mythology is one of the best instrumental prog metal albums I have heard in a long time.
For those of you out there who already enjoyed the last Jordan Rudess album, there is only one advice: buy this album now! If you still have doubts because of my "subjective" review, just listen to the opener and you will only want to hear more, and more, and more Bart's Review Since leaving Dream Theater Derek Sherinian has been churning out an album a year, always alternating his solo output with that of his band Planet X.
After last year's excellent Black Utopia I had actually expected a Planet X album this year, but instead we are treated with yet another great solo outing. Thankfully, I might add, because though I equally like his solo work and his work with Planet X, I had the feeling that on the last Planet X album the output had gone a bit stale, while Derek's solo work has been sounding as fresh as ever.
Once again surrounded by a superb supporting cast - this time consisting Allan Holdsworth, Steve Stevens, John Sykes, Jerry Goodman, as well as regular collaborators Steve Lukather, Zakk Wylde, Brian Tichy, Simon Phillips and Tony Franklin - Sherinian has managed to find a perfect balance between the heavy fusion metal and more lighthearted and fun stuff. El Flamenco Suave may well be my favourite on this album, just for its sheer weirdness.
Fun in every possible sense of the word. The album continues in similar format, alternating the heavy rock fest with more mellow or light-hearted pieces.
And so after the beautiful ballad style of Goin' To Church you get what is probably the most difficult song on the album One Way Or The Otheron which is perhaps the most difficult track to digest on the album.

My only objection is with Derek's decision to waste the talent of two great musicians such as Slash and Billy Idol in a very average and slightly silly cover of "In The Summertime", rather than creating another mind-blowing composition, worthy of their skills.
As far as I'm concerned, Derek Sherinian has managed to find the right formula that enables him to create good quality albums, while enjoying himself and that is quite evident in "Blood of the Snake". This album is an absolute "must have", and with so many amazing musicians taking part in this effort, I fail to see how anyone can resist getting their hands on it.
