So, this came as a surprise to me since a lot of GMC'ers are fans of Dream Theater, but LTE are not discussed in here. I don't know if you guys know LTE, but its an instrumental band that consisted of Petrucci, Levin, Portnoy, and Rudess. They only released 2 albums in the late 90's, but both are excellent. I actually like it so much, that I never bothered to listen to Dream Theater because LTE's music just completely dominates it. The music itself is a great mixture of Instrumental Prog and a little bit of Fusion. Oh yea, most of the songs are of improv, which is pretty sweet! Here are some songs that are available on the net:

Paradigm Shift

Acid Rain

Universal Mind My favorite song from LTE.

So, yea if you like Dream Theater, you might wanna check out Liquid Tension Experiment. The music is not really the same in a way, but I like it much better than Dream Theater.

All of them are wonderful. Rudess and Portnoy shined in these albums! Rudess keyboard was just beautiful. I love his melodic trade offs and classical styles in both albums, especially on Biaxident.

have you guys heard of Liquid Trio Experiment. Its supposedly just Ruddes, Portnoy, and Levin jamming on some songs while Petrucci is away fro his wife in labor. I want to hear it for myself, but couldn't find it anywhere. Anyone heard of the album?
