I love Signify, mainly because of Every Home Is Wired and Waiting Phase I. Also, I think this is on the song Intermediate Jesus but I keep forgetting, there's this great part where a preacher's words are garbled into something along the lines of "Jesus will separate you from God. Devils will take possession. God bless you." Hilarious.

Also, I love Up The Downstair. Synesthesia, Burning Sky, and Fadeaway are my favourite tracks there.

And my track ranking for Deadwing is currently:

1. Lazarus
2. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here
3. Deadwing
4. Mellotron Scratch
5. Shallow
6. Halo
7. The Start Of Something Beautiful
8. Open Car
9. Glass Arm Shattering

For the benefit of bono_man2002, who I have recently introduced to the greatness of Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, and all that is good and proggy.

Check out Stupid Dream. It's better.

Or at least just download The Rest Will Flow from Lightbulb Sun. Everyone should hear that song. It's beautiful.

I checked Porcupine Tree out for the first time today. I downloaded Deadwing.

For the most part, I like what I'm hearing, although I don't care for when they go metal. The lead singer's voice is incredible but doesn't really work well with a metal-type sound, in my opinion. I think others might agree considering songs like Lazarus and Mellotron Scratch are high on some lists.

Arriving Somewhere is incredible, I think.

I'll have to check out some more stuff to get an even better opinion. This is just a first-time insight.

I got into Porcupine Tree through Opeth. I'm a huge Opeth fan, but I'm starting to really get into Porcupine Tree. Dead Wing was awesome.

I was able to hear Stupid Dream today, and after one listen, I'm liking it, I'm liking it a lot. Even Less was amazing. I'm gonna go through it again now...

It appears to me that the whole trash metal portion of their music is a relatively new phase - am I correct in that assumption? I don't see the reasoning behind it. Their songs are so good, and they can certainly rock out on some parts without going into goth mode (although I must admit the heavy part on Arriving Somewhere works well). I guess a certain element of progressive metal isn't bad as long as they don't overdue it.

Awesome, I'm glad you're enjoying it!

Piano Lessons off Stupid Dream is my favourite PT song. Other favourites are This Is No Rehearsal, Stranger By The Minute, A Smart Kid, and the amazingly beautiful Stop Swimming.

The metal aspect is indeed pretty new. It's actually a death metal influence. In 2001, PT's vocalist Steven Wilson produced Opeth's Blackwater Park (he makes a vocal appearance on the awesome song Bleak) and both Wilson and Opeth rubbed off on each other. The influence first seriously showed up on 2002's In Absentia and the Futile EP.

the very best thing about porcupine three is steve wilson's voice.

definitely one of the best voices in music today.
