The album, A Month With John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess, is quite unique in being recorded live. It was recorded in Mike Portnoy's living room, with them performing on his table. The crowd started off at about 10,000 but slowly detiorated with some fans wanting to sleep or eat. By about June 30th the crowd had been limited to about 100 with only hard drug users left.

Petrucci and Rudess had to improvise the tracks after June 15th due to a lack of actual songs they know. Some people describe the improvisation as some of their best music.
