5 stars I first got this album after being a Dream Theater fan for a long time. I first heard of this band after I purchased Live Scenes From New York by Dream Theater and saw in the liner notes that the song Acid Rain was originally performed by Liquid Tension Experiment. I got this album, since I couldn't find Liquid Tension Experiment 2, the album which had Acid Rain. I later heard that album. This one is more based on improvisation, and has more jazz influences than the other LTE album or Dream Theater. I highly recommend it for any fan of Dream Theater but wouldn't recommend going into listening to it expecting a Dream Theater clone. The virtuoso performances of Dream Theater are still there, but in a different, jazzier vein. I feel that the members are given a better chance to show off their skills on this album. Favourite tracks of mine are Paradigm Shift and Universal Mind, along with the epic Three Minute Warning, a 28 minute jam session.
