Liquid Tension Experiment Beat the Odds With New Single + Video “Beating the Odds”
I’ll give it you straight, my friends: “Beating the Odds,” the new single from Liquid Tension Experiment, is really good — it sounds like it should be playing over an ’80s moving training montage, and I mean that as high praise.
The accompanying music video, on the other hand, is really bad. It’s just a bunch of not-well-filmed footage of the dudes in the band playing the song mixed in with some iMovie-quality playing card frames (because the song is called “Beating the Odds” — get it?).
Also, seeing Jordan Rudess with hair freaks me out.
Having said that, it’s obviously the song that’s most important, and in that regard, LTE win big.
Also, Mr. Rudess is obviously entitled to have as much or little hair as his body will grow, at his own discretion. Even it freaks me out.
Check out “Beating the Odds” below.
It’s the second single from LTE3, the group’s first new album in more than twenty years. It comes out March 26 on InsideOutMusic, and can be pre-ordered here. Listen to the first single, “The Passage of Time,” here.
