the start of "sentimental" reminds me of "feel so low"

Still no "proper" leak. Wow. It's only four days until the European release!

I desperately need a hiss-less version of Anesthetize. It has quickly become one of my very favourite PT songs.

I think you meant to post that comment on most of the other threads on this forum.

This is one of the few worthwhile pieces of music being discussed here.

Ding ding ding, we FINALLY have a proper leak!

I hope all of you have oink.me.uk memberships, because I can't help you. Though I'm sure it'll be all over other torrent sites soon enough too.

Yeah, it's on the torrent sites now, too.

As soon as I downloaded it and saw that My Ashes was the proper time, I knew we had a good one finally.

Can't wait to listen to it in the morning...

This new leak is beautiful, and I've listened to it a few times through now.

The album is fantastic all the way through, and the production is top notch. Initial thoughts:

Fear Of A Blank Planet - I love the opening, with the kid starting up the computer and going into the guitar riff. I agree that the lyrics here might become dated at some point - that's what happens when you mention technology by name (see Xbox). But overall, I love the storyline.

My Ashes - Beautiful piece of music with keyboards and acoustic guitar taking more of a role, harkening back to the days of Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun. A nice change of pace that nonetheless flows well.

Anesthetize - The crowning achievement of the album. The drum playing during the opening is excellent, slowly building up the momentum to the guitar solo by Alex Lifeson of Rush. Then, at about the 5 minute mark, the fuzzy guitars kick it into overdrive, leading into the main part of the song until it reaches a thunderous crescendo, probably the heaviest bit of music ever done by PT. But then it fades away into an awesome mellow section that sounds like it could have been from The Sky Moves Sideways. This track has pretty much everything you could ever want from a Porcupine Tree album. One of their best moments ever.

Sentimental - Gorgeous ballad that reminds me of Lazarus. A welcome respite from where we just came from. I love how the drums are playing in the background.

Way Out Of Here - Very atmospheric track with interesting vocals.

Sleeping Together - A refreshing change of pace to how PT has closed albums out in the past. I love the keyboard work here - quite unlike anything PT has ever done.


Overall, I am very impressed with this album. Steve Wilson is still running things here, of course, but I'm digging how Richard Barbieri and Gavin Harrison were able to stretch out - their playing on this disc is the strongest to date. The drums and keyboards are incredible.

Time to go back and listen again...

well i have heard 4 out of 6 songs ...with catch up with the other 2 in couple of days :-)

Fear of a Blank Planet
------------------------------
Its like what "Blackest Eyes" was to In Absentia and the song "dead wings" was to album "dead wings". It has the metal touch to it. Best time to play - While driving car at 100kmph :-)
( in india 100kmph is fast enough ) Lyrics about pornography - action lame and boring acting - my best part

Way out of here
----------------------
Start off with the Stupid Dream/ LS kind of ambience and finally ends with heavyish In-Absentia sound

My Ashes
-------------
My favorite song out of the four. I have become a hardcore fan of PT because of songs like "Feel so low", "collapse light", "heartattack in a " & this one....... Most beautiful song I have heard since long

Sentimental
----------------
You have to be a different kind of person to appreciate this - someone independent..someone who is never committed about anything...someone who has wasted his youth...his intelligence...his opportunities ..who no longer cares about anything... "Sentimental" hits you very hard...and now you no longer care...


I need Anesthetise & Sleeping

Judging by the radio-rips, this seems like a fine piece of work - especially Anesthetize, which may very well be the best track ever made by wilson.

And i just cant get the title track out of my mind, it's so catchy.


Does anyone have a link to the CD-rip? Torrents are blocked for me

Only have links to torrents rather than uploads on filesharing sites, I'm afraid. Ever tried using shareminer.com? It might help you find something.

And wow, has anyone here seen the video for the edit of the title track? That's some seriously fucked-up but well made shit. It's on the band's MySpace: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...oID=2021941683

Just burnt a copy of the album this morning...WOW is all I can say.
Like "In Absentia" and "Deadwing" I'm instantly hooked. These guys should be a supergroup - if this were the 70's they most definatley would be. When the album is finally released I'm buying a copy right away.

This comes out next Tuesday here in the U.S., but was it released this week anywhere else?

I'm curious how the packaging is, since the cover is really cool.

Well, it came out today, but the local store didn't have the deluxe version. I had been thinking about getting it even though it costs much more, but not having it made my decision easier.

So I got the basic CD, which has some pics of kids and stuff, but nothing really major. I'm still curious as to the packaging of the deluxe version.

Of course, the best thing is listening to this from disc for the first time. Anesthetize is just so incredible...even more so now.
