    I had it on vinyl,then tape,then cd lol,i recently bought the cd/dvd,the dvd has Jean Michel Jarre and 3 other musicians perform the entire album on the original equipment in what he describes as "in your living room".It's hard to believe the original album was recorded in a room in his own house.

    Jordan is phenomenal and he has to be since he had to fill Kevin Moore's shoes. Not only is a very talented keyboardist but he also adds a significant level of grandeur and finesse to Dream Theater's music, especially live.
