5 stars Whoa! What a composition! If you're a listener who wanted some aggressive, long, sick, crazy arrangement of music, get any of Liquid Tension Experiment albums! Like this one, absolutely amazing. Out brain will banging from the beginning of "Acid Rain" to the end of "Hourglass".

Not like its predecessor, "Liquid Tension Experiment", "2" is riper in arrangement. And it didn't contain the short-experimental tracks like "LTE" did. "Acid Rain" was brilliant. The next "Biaxident" was absolutely sick in time signature (just like the other tracks). "914" was filled much by Levin's sticks. "Another Dimension" is very close arrangement to Dream Theater's. And the outstanding 16-minute of "When the Water Breaks" is really crushed my ear. "Chewbacca" contains interesting part of the middle section, which seems like jam sessions. "Liquid Dreams" is keyboard based track, very good playing by Jordan Rudess. And then, the last track, "Hourglass" was an acoustic piece, filled by keyboard and guitars played.

Overally, an amazing album. A strong and compact album. Really satisfied the more aggressive listeners (like me?). 5 stars for "2".
