Porcupine Tree

Since the other thread is mostly outdated, it's time for a new thread to concentrate on the forthcoming Porcupine Tree album.



The album has leaked, but appears to be from multiple sources due to the sound quality varying from some of the tracks. Considering that the disc is out in a few weeks, a direct CD rip should be available anyday now.

Still, the current leak is quite listenable, and while I'll wait to hear the album in all its glory for a formal review, let me just say that this appears to be an incredible piece of work.

I like the title of this album so much that I just might think I'll check it out.

Really though, I liked In Absentia. This should be interesting.

This album is really bloody brilliant. The first three tracks in particular stand out to me as excellent. Some people are saying the hiss in Anesthetize might actually be deliberate as they don't think it sounds like tape hiss, so that'd be a little disappointing, but I honestly don't notice it that much. Hiss or no hiss, it warrants every second of its 17.5 minute length.

I just listened through the entire album while riding the tram and here's some thoughts:

1. The entire album is stunning. There doesn't seem to be a weak track. Wilson's singing is fantastic as usual and every second of each song is warranted.

2. Sentimental is one of the most beautiful PT tracks ever. Really gorgeous work.

3. Way Out Of Here really sets itself apart with some great guitar. It builds up nicely and you can feel something should be coming, and when it does come, it's even better than you expect. It seems to me to be a nice merger of PT's earlier atmospheric guitar style and the more recent metal influence.

4. My only concern is that it might become a bit lyrically outdated as time goes on. Parts are very reflective of the first decade of the 21st century. That said, I think it's done well enough that instead of seeming dated, it will be a vivid snapshot of a point in time.

A couple more thoughts:

5. DAMN, Gavin Harrison does a really, really nice job on the drums in Anesthetize, especially at the start. Larry Mullen, are you listening and taking notes?

6. Am I the only person who finds part of Way Out Of Here weird? It seems just a bit odd for someone such as Steven Wilson, who is turning forty this year, to be singing "I don't like the questions: how do you feel, how's it going in school?"

Still haven't found a better quality version out there. I'm shocked none of the torrent sites have it yet.

A local music chain in New England, Newbury Comics, is offering signed copies of the album through their website.

Perhaps I should buy a second copy there.

The only official porcupine tree CD I got was from FANO in Italy..

The store offered me 3 CDs for 45 Euros :-)


I struggled to find PORCUPINE TREE CDS in London or Cambridge in 2002..May be they have become more popular now

So the album popped up on the torrent sites and I got excited for a moment, until I realized that it was just the same leak that's been out now for a while.

There must not be many advanced promos of the album around, or we'd have seen a CD rip by now. The fact that there are no copies for sale on eBay yet would seem to confirm this.

I want to hear this album the way it's supposed to be.
