5 stars LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT are a fantatic instrumental supergroup formed in 1997 following an idea of DREAM THETER's drummer Mike Portnoy.Adding Tony Levin on bass and Jordan Rudess on keys but failing to include his initial choice of Jim Matheos on guitar,Portnoy turned to his DREAM THEATER fellow John Petrucci for the position of the guitarist.The intense rehearsals led the band to the release of their debut in 1998...and what a debut it was...just imagine a more technical and refined (what a combination)and less heavy version of instrumental DREAM THEATER.The album is a definition of top-notch fusion musicianship,satturated in changing tempos,moods and styles.The interplays between the instruments are numerous and absolutely fantastic,the styles cover the whole prog scale (from blues and jazz to classical and melodic) and every minute of this work flows nice and easily.A thrilling release heading to serious music lovers!
