jackyl, aa great heavy metal band, also from the 80’s. this was a very good album
LIQUID TRIO EXPERIMENT(Mike Portnoy, Jordan Rudess, Tony Levin) SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION In October 1998, Liquid Tension Experiment reunited at Millbrook Studios in upstate New York to record their 2nd album. A few days into the sessions, John Petrucci’s pregnant wife went into premature labor leaving Mike Portnoy, Jordan Rudess and Tony Levin stranded in an already set-up and booked recording studio. So like any creative and productive musicians would do, they decided to stay and JAM…and JAM they did! Over the course of two days, they played for hours on end. The Trio consciously did not ”compose” or ”write” anything. They simply went wherever the music took them. Several of these jams ended up being used on LTE2. The rest of this music has remained unreleased until now. For some bizarre and still unexplained reason, the master tapes of these jams were misplaced during the mixing process. But, luckily, Portnoy records almost everything he ever does and as a result his live 2-track stereo DAT mixes are the only remaining traces of this historic jam. So what you have here is as live and raw as it gets. No overdubs, no editing, no mixing. Just 3 guys, their instruments and their spontaneous imaginations feeding off of each other. So finally – almost 10 years later – here is Mike Portnoy, Jordan Rudess and Tony Levin flying by the seat of their collective, musical pants. Better late than never!

A must have for any Jackyl fan. Locked and Loaded may be the best song they have recorded since the Lumberjack. But from start to finish this album kicked this Dumb-a__ Country Boy’s a__
Yeah, Jackyl is pretty good, but the gem on this record is the duet with AC/DC’s Brian Johnson “Locked and Loaded” I hope AC/DC will do it on the next tour. It is awesome. The token chainsaw song on this record (the title track)Is also great. “Thanks for the Grammy” is pretty lame though…
This album I purchased because im an AC/DC fan and it contains a great song called “locked and loaded” which Brian Johnson joins Jesse James Depree to sing it! Its the best song on the album! And the rest of the songs are pretty good, but i’d recomend there self titles debuet album more then this one!
Most people when you ask them about this album, will cite the more popular track “Locked and Loaded” but with tracks like “Dumbass Country Boy” which really speaks to the state of the music industry and mainstream fans imo, the track that really doesn’t seem to get much notice is “Misery Loves Company” which is easily my faovrite song on the album. Looking forward to seeing them at the House of Blues later this month. While it’s not as good as their debut album, it deserves better than a 3.
