* {{Instrum{{Instrumentals}}: Everything this supergroup has ever done, may it be Tension or Trio, is this. * LastNoteHilarity: "When the Water Breaks", which is an epic and ultimately very serious instrumental, ends with a quirky piano solo in the last minute or so. * MinisculeRocking: "The Stretch" and "Chris and Kevin's Excellent Adventure" * MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Generally around a 6 or 7. * NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Music/DreamTheater-esque ProgressiveRock/[[ProgressiveMetal Metal]], mixed in with some Jazz Fusion, a fair amount of [[Music/FrankZappa Zappaisms]], a dash of classical-infused piano, and a teaspoon of electronic music. * NonIndicativeName: "Three Minute Warning", which is a 27-minute improvised jam recorded entirely in a single take. It's so long that the band's primary recording equipment actually ''ran out of space'' and left off the last three or so minutes. The name came from Tony Levin wanting to just play and have fun while the rest of the band wanted to get the structured recording out of the way before they started jamming. He threatened to quit and leave if they "didn't start jamming in three minutes." * ProgressiveRock * ProgressiveMetal * PunBasedTitle: "Biaxident", which is a play on "by accident" and the medicine "Biaxin", which John Petrucci was taking at the time. * RuleOfCool * SelfTitledAlbum * SerialEscalation: Set the standard for many newer progressive bands. It can't be more technically challenging than this. "Paradigm Shift" and "Another Dimension" are both fine examples of this. * SpiritualSuccessor: ''Levin-Minnemann-Rudess'', a 2013 album featuring half of LTE with Marco Minnemann on drums, a very similar type of project. * StudioChatter: At the end of "Three Minute Warning" and "Another Dimension". * {{Supergroup}}: Two members from Music/DreamTheater, a future member of the same band who has previously played with many other acts, (DavidBowie among them!!!) and a bassist who has played with KingCrimson, PeterGabriel and {{Yes}}. * UncommonTime * WordSaladTitle ----

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Portnoy wanted several members of other bands to be part of his project, such as [[Music/{{Pantera}} Dimebag Darrell]], [[DeepPurple Steve Morse]] and Jim Matheos, before turning to his Dream Theater partner for the guitar spot.

Sometime near the end of TheNineties, Music/DreamTheater's drummer, Mike Portnoy, was asked by his company to form a ProgressiveRock[=/=][[ProgressiveMetal Metal]] supergroup. Said group was composed by Portnoy, his Dream Theater comrade John Petrucci on guitar, the legendary bassist Tony Levin and a not-so-noble keyboardist named Jordan Rudess. Thus, the seeds for Liquid Tension Experiment were planted.
