This track from Dream Theater's eleventh album, A Dramatic Turn Of Events
, was a collaboration between guitarist John Petrucci and keyboardist Jordan Rudess. Petrucci told Musicradar.com
the story of the tune: "I demoed this song early on and brought it to the band. I had an idea for a ballad, but when I sent it to the guys I definitely said that I was open to anything, all thoughts and suggestions.
I worked a lot with Jordan on bringing the middle bridge section to another place. He's such a master at coming up with the coolest chord and melodic movements. It cascades in ways that you don't expect, the way the chords are modulating and moving. From the demo process, we kept a Moog solo that Jordan did – I absolutely love it."
