Liquid Tension Experiment

A sort of instrumental prog-rock/prog-metal supergroup, Liquid Tension Experiment features Dream Theater's John Petrucci (guitar) and Mike Portnoy (drums), keyboardist Jordan Rudess (who has worked with the Dixie Dregs and has since joined Dream Theater), and bassist extraordinaire Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel, and many others). The group issued its self-titled debut in 1998 on the Magna Carta label and regrouped the following year for Liquid Tension Experiment 2. ~ Steve Huey

I definitely need to actually buy this group's music. And dude just before me, u didn't hit no 115 in no damn sonata

I've been known to hit 115 in my little Hyundai Sonata on the way to work in the mid afternoon. This is AWESOME speeding dangerously in traffic ("WHAT A DUMBASS!") music!

ROCK!!!

LOVE this album! Play the hell out of it whenever I'm driving. Jokingly, I call it DT LTE or (Dream Theater Light...) since, well, you get it...

I am unhappy about living without this music in my past. I missed some s**t for sure. Masters of the trade

LTE has such amazing musicianship . The genre is definitely not dead, there are plenty of amazing players still alive and kickin'.

I'd love to hear Geddy get involved with a prog supergroup, his chops on the last two Rush tours were at the top of his game. It might give Neil a kick in the pants...

Then again, a new Rush album would be most welcome. CWA was epic, some of the best since AFWTK.

Tylosargerch i a - Most certainly. This album is rich in music treasures. It is just that not enough people care to create demand for new product :(

@craig.hamil t o n . n e w l e t t e r s : The first LTE was recorded in one week as that is all the time they had to get together. They had a bit more time to record LTE2. I'm a little fuzzy on the timeframe for the second one, but I'm pretty confident it was right at 6 weeks, give or take a week. Also, they only have two studio albums. There is Liquid Trio Experiment, but that's just simply taken from the LTE2 sessions while Petrucci was away at the hospital for the birth of this child.

This track Universal Mind sounds great! Almost fusion jazz in some respects. Listen to Brand X from late 70's early 80's. LP's called Unorthodox Behavaiour and Morrocon Roll. You won't believe it's Phil Collins playing drums!

I had to wonder that when they put LTE together that they were considering getting rid of John Myung. My own thoughts are that Myung is better than Levin
Report as inappropriate
It is hard to believe how quickly LTE was able to write their first 2 albums. I forget how long, but if memory is correct - it was 2 weeks.

Yes Justin, that's the one. What an awesome song. It takes a lot for music alone to move someone on an emotional level, but close your eyes and let that song fill the room.

Tamara, love Acid Rain too. I made a silly little video to go with that one back in college.

Wouldn't it be really cool if Pandora got Spontaneous Combustion by the Liquid Trio Experiment. Lot's of quirky fusion on that album. It reminds me of Bill Frisell.

@goofyjo if you are talking about When the water breaks yes, it is a masterpiece of music and one of if not my favorite song of all time.

If you guys like this song -- I highly encourage buying the album. There's a 16 minute song on there that may just be the best piece of music I've yet to find anywhere. It's absolutely awesome.

Since LTE 1 & 2 Rudess has proven to be better than Moore and Sherinian combined. However, I still like Moore and Sherinian, just not as much.

Love DT, Love Liquid Tension Experiment. Great Musicians. Too bad Portnoy is a selfish ego-maniac.

I would love if Pandora.com could somehow include these live albums in their LTE discography!
