Liquid Tension Experiment 2 (Magna Carta) 1999
1. "Acid Rain"
Second instrumental side project from Dream Theater & Company. There are two epic length pieces on this disc; the 17-minute "When the Water Breaks," and the slightly shorter "Chewbacca." Both are well written, and do more than just show how proficient and skilled the musicians are. In other words, the band has successfully written real songs, as opposed to just writing rhythms for which to solo over. The music really does sound like Dream Theater-esque progressive metal without the vocals. Unfortunately for me, I find this type of thing more as background music, so this will not be a frequent player in my cd player although I am sure it will go nicely for some late night listens.
