Black Utopia (2003) by Derek Sherinian. Labels: InsideOut Music. Genres: Progressive Metal, Progressive Rock Members: Yngwie Malmsteen, Al DiMeola, Zakk Wylde, Steve Lukather, Tony Franklin, Billy Sheehan. 1). Portnoyy (90/100). One of the highlights of my career was flying to Miami to produce Yngwie, and the next day Al Di Meola - all for my record!" The song "Axis Of Evil", (co-written with KISS drummer Eric Singer), has Zakk Wylde and Yngwie Malmsteen in a guitar duel The track "Nightmare Cinema" is named after an alternate ego used during encore performances by Dream Theater, of which Sherinian is a former member.

On this album, Derek Sherinian managed to avoid this, which maintains a good sense of coherency while still featuring many progressive ideas and constructions. But as already mentioned, some of the songs don't seem to go anywhere at all. Stony Days just has the same melody played over and over with solos underneath it. Sweet Lament is pretty much the same all through as well, with keyboards building the spine of the song and some nice, mellow soloing plays over it. It's quite good, but it needs to go somewhere.

With an all-star lineup featuring some stellar musicians, this album almost feels like a bit of a letdown. Main man Derek Sherinian takes a backseat to endless guitar acrobatics by some of the world's most renowned players, yet it all seems rather dull and uninspired. Now, I love heavy music, I have a bit of a taste for what's called "fusion", though I could never totally come to grasps with what that really means, and enjoy a bit of guitar shredding. But none of it seems coherent on this album. You have guys like Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Lukather, Al Di Meola and Zakk Wylde all on one record, and yet, with the exception of a few passages, it feels like they're all just going through the motions. There's an abundance of great riffs though, which is evident in massive headbangers like 'The Sons of Anu' and the title track, 'Black Utopia', while songs like 'Starcycle' and 'Gypsy Moth' have some nice, exotic flavors to them. But overall, while none of the tracks are bad, I struggle to really listen to any of them all the way through without being bored. And then of course, there's Mr. Sherinian himself. The fact I've discussed the guitar playing more than the keyboards pretty much goes to show how low-key Sherinian's performance seems to be. Or perhaps I'm just struggling to pay attention. As a whole, I do feel kind of bad giving this album such a low score, but I struggle to justify to myself rating it any higher.
