You don't stick to a basic verse/chorus structure, nor to the traditional qualities of a radio hit. But as much as that affects the sound, there's also the important attitude component, that you want to take your music somewhere, or in other words, progress. Why stay bogged down in the same territory when you can push on into other places?

I don't think you can have one without the other. Definitely not the attitude without the music. You can have a prog desire as much as you like, but it's not prog if you're just playing three chords and sound like a Blink 182 cover band!

Interestingly enough, despite the fact PT is one of the most popular prog bands, Steven Wilson himself doesn't consider the band to be prog. He often thinks the music is quite simple, just his form of art as a conduit for emotions and thoughts.

But yeah, the definition is really up for debate. Some prog fans would call Queen's first couple of albums prog. Some might even give that term to the Passengers project U2 did. Others are far more strict. Heh, you'll find some narrow enough to apply it only to bands that sound like Dream Theater or Pink Floyd.

And now we're up to This Is No Rehearsal, my second favourite on the album.

I would LOVE for Bono to snippet This Is No Rehearsal at the end of The Fly:

I've gotta go, yeah I'm running out of change
There's a lot of things, if I could I'd rearrange
This is no rehearsal
Play it back and throw things at the screen
This is no rehearsal!
Somebody interpret this for me!
This - is - no - rehearsal!
Play it back and THROW THINGS AT THE SCREEN!
THROW THINGS AT THE SCREEN!

Especially on a tour with a big screen for us to throw stuff at.

I love this Steven Wilson quote about Baby Dream In Cellophane:

The baby in the song is basically singing the song: 'I am in my pram'. And it's quite a cynical song because he's basically saying that the boy's life is almost mapped out already as the child is born, it's already predetermined by society and the baby's kind of singing from the pram if you like, saying 'well, actually no, I'm not going to go down this path that's been laid out for me. I'm gonna break out.' It's almost like a very surreal teen rebellion song. If you imagine Nirvana, if they wrote about rebellious teenagers, I write songs for rebellious babies.

Stranger By The Minute is my third-favourite on the album. It sounds like such a nice, upbeat song, but the lyrics are so morbid and dark!

Still, this could just about be my motto:

Strange as I seem
I'm getting stranger by the minute
Look in my dreams
They're getting stranger by the minute
