Liquid Tension Experiment - Liquid Tension Experiment Vol.2 (2006) Retail CD
This was my first ever Amazon buy and I thought I might be taking a risk, not ever having heard over a minute of music by this band - but I bought it anyway and for it's price, I found it great value for money. I would be lying if I were to say that I found every track on this album absolutely fantastic. Some, in my opinion, are definitely better than others. Without doubt, "When the Water Breaks" is my favourite - seventeen minutes of complexity, virtuosity and bizarre chord sequences and metres! The bit in 7/4 about 3 minutes in with the soaring guitar parts is probably my favourite bitmore… of my favourite track ever. It does what music is supposed to do - uplift you. In fact, I haven't found anybody who doesn't like at least some part of this album. Some parts are very reminiscent of the progressive rock bands of old. 'Biaxident' is also a favourite with some real head-back air guitar moments among the classical, jazz and rock fusion. 'Acid Rain' is a fast-paced metal track which must go into some racing videogame someday. 'Another Dimension' is a weird yet cool heavy rockfest with a little bit of accordion thrown in for good measure and rhythms you'll have to listen to 50 times for spot-on toe-tapping. '914' is basically a short improvised jam which does have some good melodic ideas and 'Hourglass' is a pleasant acoustic closing piece. However, the two other improvised jams 'Chewbacca' and 'Liquid Dreams' were a little too ambient for my liking and I do agree that Levin's Chapman Stick is a little too low in the mix, especially in some of the more complex moments doubling up Petrucci's guitar. Well, those two tracks don't matter and they are listenable. Just remember the fact that these four instrumentalists are among the best around in terms of skill and when put together for just a few sessions to make music, allowing for the fact that guitarist John Petrucci had to take a leave of absence half-way through recording for the birth of his daughter (identified by a baby's cry in 'When The Water Breaks') before overdubbing most of the tracks, and this is what you get - a great album!(By the way, if you're a singing fan... none on this album! Sorry!)
