Do you think Maiden are still relevant?

Agree with the Stupid Dream/Lightbulb Sun comparisons.  Probably why I'm enjoying it so much, as the latter of those two is my favourite PT album.
To me, only A Door Marked Summer sounds like old PT.

The album is a tremendous direction towards more concise songs. I will preface this by saying Hand Cannot Erase is easily my favorite album from his solo career and a top 3 now in all of his career including Porcupine Tree material. With To The Bone Steven is maturing even more as a song writer and looking to write great pop rock songs with his signature style and flair.

I love the direction of this album and it is a nice departure from his last two monster records.

Each listen I love it more and more and more. So many great sublime moments, and just when you think he is going to go off on a musical soundscape tangent....the song ends leaving you wanting more.

Maturity.
It is definitely his most pop/mainstream release. Maybe he wants to cash in like Genesis did. Simplifying tends to bring in more listeners. Maybe he can do a duet with Beyoncé or Taylor Swift.

It is not metal. It is virtually pop though. I like some material, not all.

I like it more with each listen. I pretty much like the whole album now.

Well you probably need a few more listens than that. It's been out for about 3 or 4 months, been busy?

It was a slow burn for me too, but not particularly compelling.  After the month following release I've probably only listened to it a few more times.  HCE is much better, Raven for that matter as well.  I've even listened to Insurgents a few times recently and realize how many sleeper tracks/deep cuts there on that for me now.  IMO only Grace languishes behind TTB in his catalog.
