The Story
"Liquid Tension Experiment" is the band name and the self-titled debut CD featuring Mike Portnoy (drums), Jordan Rudess (keyboards), Tony Levin (bass, stick) and Dream Theater's John Petrucci on guitar. The foursome composed and created a complex, yet vibrant, recording of instrumentals that showcase the amazing compositional and technical performance abilities of these noted players. "Liquid Tension Experiment" is also surprisingly varied in its moods, yet the progressive backing tracks leave room for plenty of improvisational soloing. The entire record was written and recorded in less than a week of magic, madness, stress and creativity. Petrucci fans will find this CD to be essential listening.
