Just introduced myself to Steven Wilson since I have noticed his technical wizardry on many prog rock re-productions ( most notably Yes). Being a prog rock lover for 45 years I hear many influences on his music, and nothing really like his Porcupine Tree band. If King Crimson of the 70's was starting out today, this would be what they might sound like. Subtle then very definite phases in each song, winds, guitars, mellotrons, clear vocals, and arrangements that are well thought out. A huge find for myself as I now have listened to all his releases and look forward to his next one this coming year.
Impressive, thematic work. Will appeal to fans of his band Porcupine Tree and progressive rock. If you've never heard his material, start with Porcupine Tree first.
This solo album is best appreciated by the advanced, discerning listener. One negative is that some pieces are long and drawn out, which may seem pretentious, especially since a little trimming would have made this fit on a single CD.
Near masterpiece. Dramatic. A throwback to albums around 1970 in appoach..., heavy without any distorted riffing guitars or pounding drums. Requires patience. Best listened to with headphones on, in a dark room!
