Jordan Rudess, keyboardist for New York progressive metal act Dream Theater, was recently interviewed by Noisecreep and has named five albums that changed his life.
Here are a few descriptions for the albums he chose:
“The combination of the energy, the harmonies and intricate chord changes, opened up my mind to the possibilities of what I could do with a keyboard.”
“It literally sounded like his guitar was talking. I still haven’t heard anyone make a wah-wah pedal sound like that.”
“They are a band filled with really amazing players. The way their parts intertwined with other each other was so…The word ‘glorious’ comes to mind when I think about that album.”
