4 stars Liquid Tension Experiment was one of those wonderful progressive music supergroups that emerged in the 90's. And indeed, one of the best!

In fact, from this collaboration came one of the luckiest things that ever happened to Dream Theater, which was the addition of Jordan Rudess to its ranks. And listening to this album, it is easy to see why. His keyboards are perfectly complemented by the great John Petrucci guitars, and the powerful drums of Mike Portnoy, which sounds as poorly tuned as usual in his recordings.

Special mention should be made of bassist Tony Levin, who is undoubtedly one of the most talented musicians ever to play the four strings.

In summary, Liquid Tension Experiment is an album of pure progressive rock, varied, instrumentally rich and with an enviable instrumentation. A must-listen for all progressive lovers!

Best Tracks: Paradigm Shift (a powerful and appropriate way to start a record), Freedom of Speech (good progressive composition, with different atmospheres and tonalities) and of course, Three Minute Warning (contains one of the best works of John Petrucci, without doubt)

My Rating: ****
