I'm looking forward to seeing some of you reviews for Porcupine Tree albums. Will be nice to see someone elses perspective of the albums in a big review trink39.gif

Oh Christ, right now that's a bit intimidating...LOL.  I feel I'm the last guy to the party at this moment.  biggrin.gif

I'm the most ill-informed fan on the planet.

You're fully informed as soon as you listen to an album as far as I'm concerned. Plus, that'd mean you'd only be talking about the music.

That's the beauty of them.  cool.gif  Glad to hear of your enjoyment. Those albums will only grow on you more.

Pretty good haul in general. I don't have In Absentia (just "Trains") and I can't listen through Deadwing (though "Lazarus" and "Arriving Somewhere But Not Here" are two of my favorite PT tracks), but Stupid Dream is awesome and Fear of a Blank Planet is solid.

Just gets a bit too "thrashy" for me in places. I'm not much of a metalhead.

  laugh.gif Sorry Kudzu. No offense. It's not metal. Before you start....  dazed025.gif give it a rest. Porcupine Tree IS NOT METAL.


Now... dig out your Metallica and your Iron Maiden and such, and leave Porcupine Tree alone. I mean, please. Even the name isn't metal. What respectable METAL band would name themselves PORCUPINE anything? Huh?

Porcupine Tree makes a point to evade labels. That's half the fun of this band.

Go bang your head.  trink39.gif

I'm listening to Stupid Dream! Typical PT.  confused13.gif

apart from which, fear of a blank planet is a far heavier album overall than deadwing.

Deadwing does verge on metal in places, just like Fear of a Blank Planet does at times, but I'd agree with others that doesn't make them metal.

SS, the great thing about PT is there are only two labels you can give them; Inventive and truly progressive (NOT prog rock laugh.gif ). If i were in a band, I'd love to have those two labels apply to me.

Right now...after cursory listens...I lean towards In Absentia being the most diverse (least "samey") and more up my alley, style wise.  But they all have quite a few great moments...and that'll grow the more I listen.  

That album, however, stands out.

Stupid Dream is the most accessible of the lot I have.
