U2Man, the answer is: because they're cool.

AcrobatMan and anyone else who'd like it, I 'found' Orchidia on YSI. Remove spaces in the following URL:

OK, but isn't there some kind of story behind this?

Why on earth would Porcupine Tree put a photo of a railroad station in the second largest city of Denmark inside their cover?

Because I suppose, porcupine tree is relatively more popular in countries like Poland and Denmark than Great Britian.

Regarding whether or not I am able to see the same station as u, I will see the booklet tonight and inform u... I have the european edition of the CD with bonus CD which has absolutely amazing ...CHLOROFORM....anyone is a hardcore fan of CHLOROFORM here

Inside the cover of "In Absentia" you see a picture of some railroad tracks and a bridge in the distance.

I have a vague picture of it...it must have to do something with the song ..TRAIN

my favorite lyrics from IN ABSENTIA

its so erotic when your make up runs ( or something like that)


does anyone know whose voice is at the end of
" And The Swallows Dance Above The Sun " and does he say
something bad..do I hear what others hear

does anyone find this song (ablve) similar to FLY by U2...this album came 2 to 3 years before Achtung baby however

now we have some porcupine tree fans...it feels good

AcrobatMan, you really, really need to order in Deadwing. I ordered it in and although I initially didn't think it had topped In Absentia, after a few listens I felt it was equal and I now consider it superior. The first five tracks in particular are stellar - Lazarus would be one of my top three PT tracks (with Piano Lessons and The Sound Of Muzak).
I've been listening to Deadwing and In Absentia in the last 2-3 days, and I must say, I prefer Deadwing, simply because it's not quite as heavy as In Absentia. The tracks from Lazarus and onwards are really, really beautiful.

Axver, or anyone else:

could you recommend a song/album etc. that is something reminiscent of .3?

All I have is In Absentia.

And if you want it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to YSI something, me and my dinosaur dial-up are gonna try and get this Orchidia and see how it flies.

I do love In Absentia, I heard about it by mistake 2 years ago, somehow.

My favourite lyrics would be all of The Sound Of Muzak. They're so very true.

The music of the future will not entertain
It's only meant to repress and neutralise your brain

Yes, I hear that too. That's ... odd ...

So much of Tarquin's Seaweed Farm/On The Sunday Of Life is really weird, though. Space Transmission is the weirdest I think.

Hmm, I'm pretty new to the majority of Porcupine Tree's discography - being a poor student, I can't afford many albums, but I downloaded PT's entire discography not too long ago. I of course believe in supporting artists and will buy the albums when I can, but this is my temporary solution so I can enjoy the music.

My point is that I don't know the catalogue inside out and need to listen to some of it more, but I'm thinking you'd like The Sky Moves Sideways.

Deadwing never ceases to amaze me. The title track, Lazarus, and Arriving Somewhere But Not Here are three of the best songs I have ever heard. Lazarus in particular.

Yes mostly long instrumental songs...good bassline loop...and creating a trance... the only problem is unline 0.3, you might run out of patience... not as compact as 0.3 but if you like long nice instrumental songs, sky move sidewards is for u.. dislocated day is good too
