4 stars "LTE" is a splendid example of everything classic prog purists hate about modern proggish metal-- it's dry, cold, technical noise devoid of meaning and soul, so filled with masturbatory extended soloing and meaningless jams that listening to it in its entirety is analogous to sitting under the dentist drill.

Of course, "LTE" is absolutely everything fans of contemporary prog-metal salivate over: dazzling technical proficiency coupled with soaring melodies, savage riffing, and an eclectic flair that dwarfs most anything any group in the '70's could hope to pull off.

I fall into the second group, and heartily recommend "LTE" to fans of Dream Theater (obviously), but also to anyone who enjoys melodic hooks and dynamic instrumental music-- of which this is one of the better ones out there. The musicianship is off the charts and the lengthy jams are half the fun!

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 5 Lyrics/Vocals: NA Style/Emotion/Replay: 5
