This one? I know I said it's the one to vote for and that "you can't go wrong with Porcupine Tree."

Next time I do a party, I don't think I'll do a vote as I already know what will win, Dream Theater's Images And Words: most people familiar with prog will vote for it (it's the seminal album of modern prog and spawned the genre of prog metal), and I'll be recommending it so anyone following my lead will vote for it too.

Now we're onto A Smart Kid, which is apparently Opeth frontman Mikael Akerfeldt's favourite PT song. Steven Wilson has produced a couple of Opeth albums and has sung backing vocals for Opeth - Akerfeldt, in return, plays some guitar on PT's Deadwing album.

I love this part of A Smart Kid:

And I will wait for you
Until the sky is blue
And I will wait for you
What else can I do?


The song itself is basically about the aftermath of nuclear war and its sole survivor.

I really must say, Steven Wilson is easily one of my favourite musicians. He's one of the best guitarists, lyricists, vocalists, and producers I know - and in all cases, completely self-taught. I listen to HTDAAB and can't believe a professional producer can butcher it so much while the self-taught Wilson does beautiful jobs on anything he touches.

(I can't wait to hear Orphaned Land's next album, as Wilson's producing it. Orphaned Land + Steven Wilson = guaranteed to NOT suck.)

And now Tinto Brass, my least favourite song on the album, but still good. It's an instrumental; the sound sample of a woman speaking in Japanese is Steven Wilson's girlfriend.

Depends what you count. The traditional count gives you eight albums, though the first, On The Sunday Of Life, is a compilation of two earlier demo albums Steven Wilson made. There's then a number of live albums, EPs, and limited releases floating around.

I think I have a new band to get into while I wait for new U2 music

Steven Wilson, by the way, is a crazily prolific musician. Besides Porcupine Tree's eight albums between 1991 and now, he's made enough side projects to make your head spin, and produced other band's albums too. The man doesn't seem to rest - and I haven't heard him make a dud either, though he's certainly experimented in a lot of fields.

hahaha... I think I probably did vote for this one on your recommendation because I was completely lost on any of the selections

Do you like Pink Floyd? Porcupine Tree's earlier albums are more psychedelic with lengthier compositions. The Sky Moves Sideways is very reminiscient of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here (album, that is, not song).

Porcupine Tree's latest two albums have been more influenced by metal and there is some metal riffing, though still very much prog. The last album, Deadwing, has the beautiful Lazarus, a very soft song that I think most U2 fans would like.

And now for the last song of the album, the beautiful Stop Swimming. These are quite possibly my favourite Porcupine Tree lyrics ever:

This song leaks out onto the pavement
It could be a joke, it could be a statement
The more that I fake it and pretend I don't care
The more you can read into what isn't there
