Deluxe version includes a bonus DVD. All of my vendors are out of this version right now. I had just looked it up for a customer of mine

<not a fan, just random information for you

Ah, I forgot about the DVD.

Looks like I'm gonna have to go to eBay for that version, then. I can't find it anywhere.

My guy said this title is already out of print. WEA apparently only made a few thousand. My supplier didn't get full shipments to fill pre-orders, and everyone is scrambling trying to find this. Another supplier already deleted it from his database. Good luck!

Ha.

This thing is certainly doing better than I think anyone expected. Check out the chart results on the band's website!

Fear of a Blank Planet is already Porcupine Tree's most successful album to date, with European first week sales and chart positions coming in much higher than anything ever acheived in the past. A big thank you from the band to all their fans for giving this new release so much support! The reviews have also been the best of the band's career.

United Kingdom : chart entry at #31
Germany : chart entry at #21
Italy : chart entry at #34
Netherlands : chart entry at #13
Norway : chart entry at #34
Finland : chart entry at #16
Poland : chart entry at #30


Porcupine Tree ... are becoming popular?

I scored the limited edition tonight. Had to drive to the nearest Newbury Comics to get it. They only had a couple left. On sale for only $21.99, too!

Figures Newbury would still have some. They seem to have a history with Porcupine Tree and Steve Wilson, as they've had numerous in-store appearances with them and offer exclusive autographed copies at times (like for this release, which I missed out on). So I'm guessing they got shipped extras, although it appears their supply is just about gone now as well.

The packaging is beautiful. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to check out the 5.1 surround sound version. I'll bet those drums at the beginning of Anesthetize sound amazing in DTS.

Good for you!

And Axver, will you have to stop liking them now as they become more popular?

It would be cool to see them hit the Top 40 in the Billboard charts here next week. I don't think they've ever done that.

The album debuted at #59 on the Billboard album chart here in the U.S., selling about 11,000 units.

Not too surprising, although it would have been nice to have made the Top 40. But since Deadwing only managed to get to #132 in 2005, I say they've made strides here as well.

I got the chance to listen to the DVD yesterday, and all I can say is wow. Hearing this in surround sound just blew me away. I love this album.

I wish I had a good enough sound system that would make buying the DVD worthwhile.

But I think it's testament to this album's greatness that both you and I went straight for Anesthetize as our PT representation in the Prog Island contest.

(I was also considering the 33 minute long alternate mix of The Sky Moves Sideways, but I didn't want to use up that much space and Anesthetize is better anyway.)

I really didn't want to use an artist more than once for the prog contest, but the way it is working right now, I love how both PT songs I have sound on it.

I started with 6.5 hours of material solely on the basis of "one song from one artist". I hate to think how much more material I would've had to cut if I'd been willing to even briefly consider two songs from an artist. I stuck fiercely to that rule simply because it made my life a whole lot easier in the end!

This fall, Porcupine Tree will continue a momentous year of activity with their biggest-ever U.S. tour, a new EP, Nil Recurring, and the re-release of their groundbreaking album Fear of a Blank Planet on DVD-A and vinyl. Fear has quickly become the best-selling and best-reviewed album of the band’s career, and they have already sold out one major U.S. tour in 2007.

Playing larger venues than on any previous U.S. visit, Porcupine Tree kick off their fall tour October 3 in Orlando, and will make stops at The Beacon Theatre in New York City on October 13 and at Voodoo Fest in New Orleans on October 26. At Voodoo Fest, they join a lineup that includes Rage Against The Machine, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Wilco.

On September 25, the band will release Nil Recurring, a 4-track, EP written during the Fear of a Blank Planet sessions. The disc includes the title track, which features Robert Fripp (of King Crimson) on guitar, and "Cheating the Polygraph," which was premiered on the 2006 tour, but subsequently left off the Fear of a Blank Planet album.

Porcupine Tree will also burnish its reputation for producing some of the best-sounding albums in the world when they release a DVD-A of Fear of a Blank Planet September 25 in lossless 5.1 surround sound, as well as exclusive 5.1 mixes of four bonus tracks appearing on Nil Recurring.

Finally, On October 3, vinyl specialists ToneFloat will issue Fear of a Blank Planet as a 180 gram double vinyl edition. It will also include the tracks from the forthcoming Nil Recurring. In addition, a special limited edition of only 1,000 copies will be pressed on blue/black marbled 180 gram double vinyl, housed in a numbered picture slipcase, containing a glossy full-colour 16-page 12x12inch booklet. The limited edition will only be available directly through ToneFloat and the Porcupine Tree store.

Porcupine Tree have earned superlative reviews for Fear of a Blank Planet, which includes contributions from Robert Fripp of King Crimson and Rush’s Alex Lifeson. Mojo called it “dazzling… like Radiohead playing Kashmir” in a 4 star review, while Jim DeRogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times declared it the near-equal of Dark Side of The Moon or OK Computer, “because the six-track, 51-minute exploration of heady ideas is as gripping musically as it is lyrically… easily as strong as any of the band’s previous eight releases, and the most timely.”

This is really, really awesome, and the EP preview clip on the band's MySpace sounds quite promising. Does Steven Wilson ever sleep? PT are even apparently coming to Australia, probably early next year. I can't wait.
