I know I'm heavier on the post 1999 material. Still trying to get into most of the tracks on Stars Die. But you cannot deny that the list above is filled to the brim with awesomeness.
Nice list. Your top 3 is the same as mine, although I tend to have the full version of Even Less as my #1.

Love seeing Pure Narcotic in there. It's my number one PT track.

I'm not too keen on making a list just yet as I am sure once the shine wears off, so to speak, I'll have different placements for the newer stuff than what I do presently.

So, shall we talk tour setlists, or are some of you (i.e. Serena) avoiding spoilers?

Saw PT last night, downtown LA. Very good show, though I wasn't crazy about the new club Nokia. Sound was good, though not loud enough. Film accompanied most of the music. Guess I would compare them to Opeth and Tool, with a few throwback moments to earlier Floyd type prog and P. Gabriel solo (I know, anyone reading this is well aware what they sound like). I preferred the second half older selections a bit more. Recommended if they are coming to your town.

From setlist.fm (since I wouldn't know one Porcupine Tree song from the next )

The Incident (about one hour straight shot)

1. Occam's Razor
2. The Blind House
3. Great Expectations
4. Kneel and Disconnect
5. Drawing the Line
6. The Incident
7. Your Unpleasant Family
8. The Yellow Windows of the Evening Train
9. Time Flies
10. Degree Zero of Liberty
11. Octane Twisted
12. The Séance
13. Circle of Manias
14. I Drive the Hearse

10 minute exact break

15. The Start of Something Beautiful
16. The Sound of Muzak
17. Buying New Soul
18. Anesthetize Part 2
19. Lazarus
20. Strip the Soul
21. .3
22. Bonnie the Cat

Encore 1:
23. Way Out of Here

Encore 2:
24. Trains

About 2 hour total playing time.

Yup, that's what is meant by "Set 1: The Incident". They play the whole thing, take a 10 min. breather and play some older stuff.

Cleveland tomorrow! I am so excited!

Have a good time Serena. Get there early, and get right up front (in the middle) like your sig sez .
Wilson will be right in front of you most of the time


And just a thought, thinking back to the show.... It would be beneficial, I think, if they would let the keyboard guy let loose more with the sound effects. Whenever he came into the song as a main component, the wall of sound went to a different and much higher level, adding another dimension to it all. Not in a retro way either, still very modern. Just a bit more of a face peeling effect. And that is good, imo

Last time around, they were doing a similar thing ... set one would be all of Fear Of A Blank Planet, then set two would be older stuff. Though it later changed to become one long main set, with the older stuff mixed in amongst FOABP.

I wish the second sets varied a little bit more from night to night, but on the other hand, Strip the Soul/.3? I can't argue with that at all.

I am back from Cleveland and here goes!

Setlist:
The Incident

The Start of Something Beautiful
Buying New Soul
The Pill's I'm taking
Lazarus
Strip the Soul
.3
Bonnie the Cat

Encore:
Mother and Child Divided
Trains

---

I made it to the front row, almost center! I was a little off, more towards Colin's side, but THERE WAS NO WAY IN HELL I COULD COMPLAIN. I happened to be right in front of the free space where SW would come to the edge of the stage with his guitar, RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.

Anyway, King's X was pretty good, I might check them out later. PT ended up running about a full hour late because their equipment got delayed and it affected the merch too. I'm guessing by the traffic jam we saw on the way to downtown Cleveland. I also think it's pretty sad that I was able to name the Autechre tracks they kept playing while we waited for the band to hit the stage.

10 pm - Porcupine Tree finally hit the stage and immediately open with Occam's Razor and tear into The Blind House. I think they were a bit ticked about their equipment delay, not that I blame them. But the show went on and it went on well. SW's video screen guitar thing is mesmerising to watch. It's so pretty to watch it swirl and stuff while he's playing. That took my attention for pretty much all of the time he used it (I can't remember if it was during Drawing the Line or The Incident, but I know it was somewhere in there.). The rest of the Incident, save for a few minor hold ups (SW broke a guitar string during Great Expectations and panicked a little bit.), was very, very excellent. I have an entirely new appreciate for the album having heard it live.

The second set was pretty much what I expected down to a tee, but I'm glad we got Mother and Child Divided instead of Way Out Of Here. And we also got Buying New Soul which really thrilled me too! Bonnie the Cat sounds wicked live, by the way!
