Order the new album "LTE3" Now:
LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT, the legendary supergroup comprised of Mike Portnoy (Transatlantic, Sons of Apollo), John Petrucci (Dream Theater), Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), and Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel) recently announced their return with a new album titled ‘LTE3’, due to be released March 26th, 2021 via InsideOutMusic, twenty-two years after the bands’ last studio album.
"’The Passage of Time’ was the very first song we composed together when we reunited this past summer. It was so exciting to be back in a room creating together again after so long (22 years for all 4 of us and over 10 years for the 3 of us since being together in DT).
This serves as a great first taste for the listeners as it combines so many of the musical elements that makes LTE unique"
-Mike Portnoy
“This was the first song we worked on and when it was done, we all knew once again how amazing it was to be working together. We knew we were on to something and that this was going to be a really amazing album. Nothing about the passage of over two decades could’ve done anything to change that. To me this song truly reflects the collaborative songwriting efforts of all four of us.”
-John Petrucci
There is an undeniable chemistry that happens when the four of us are together. Entering the studio and starting work on ‘The Passage of Time’ after 22 years literally gave me a whole new perspective on these important musical (and personal) relationships and the way time is so relative. We just jumped right in, it was like no time had passed at all, and we created a song that has so many of the elements that make LTE unique. Not a day has gone by since our last release when I wasn’t asked, “When is LTE getting back together again?” Now we can finally deliver, and I can’t wait for everybody to hear our creation.”
-Jordan Rudess
“From the murky depths of the lockdown, LTE has re-emerged, galvanized, dripping with ideas, and taking no prisoners. ‘The Passage of Time’ is just the beginning.”
-Tony Levin

    The solo section during 4:00 and so reminds me a lot of the solo section of In the Presence of Enemies 2. It has a very similar structure and feeling. I love how they get old ideas and recycle into something new and it still sounds cool. And Portnoy, my favorite modern drummer, I'm a huge fan of both work and personaliry. Being friends with him must be one of these gifts life only gives you in rare moments. Saying good job to him seems redundant, he always does it. But yeah, good job MP.

    As a Dream Theater fan of both "eras" it´s kinda hard to see how little development Mike has gone through. It´s been eleven years since Mike left the band and he still plays the same fills and patterns. After all the rather "projects" (compared to DT) it seems to me he lost touch to progressing his style. John and Jordan are a lot of steps ahead of Mike who - in hindsight - peaked in Dream Theater and also reached his skill ceiling. Manginis skill ceiling is pretty much non existant and can easily keep up with whatever Petrucci and Rudess throw at him. I want to believe that this is also a reason why Portnoy left DT. He is a great drummer - no question - and he made Dream Theater a band that I love but he also stopped or slowed their progress by being probably too much involved to the song writing. By no means I am hating on him. I just think he didn´t progress his skills and this was maybe also a reason why he left DT in the end. I don´t think we will get much more collaboration with old DT staff for that very reason.

      Go to 4:59 and tell me you haven't heard the same thing 100 times from Jordan. They haven't developed any more than Mike.

      Just because he doesn't need 69 toms left right up and centre to play a song, doesn't mean that you can ignore the actual progress he has made in music.

Là, son temps semble un peu Comté et ça risque de le rendre un peu chèvre. Et surtout ça serait super Vachard!! Je l’aime bien cette Tomme, moi!
