  1. me too. Just jams without melody or hooks. Something Post 2000's kings X has struggled with IMO. they used to know what a hook was.....it's kinda sad. Mick
  2. Steven Wilson-THE FUTURE BITES (5/10) this is my least fav of his solo works. Musically i miss the guitars. and i think the anti-Technology and anti-Commercialism sentiments here cringe Personal Shopper is just lyrical content we've heard a thousand times and it's not smart nor clever. it's just old man yelling at clouds. but there are some songs i like 12 Things I forgot (a good classic Wilson ballad) Man Of The People Count of Unease Basically all the slower songs, lol I hope i like the next album. Cause this Steven Wilson sans guitar thing isn't gonna cut it with me. Mick
  3. yea i'm glad i did but when this album is good it's GREAT and it still deserves credit for the balls of it all. It also makes me wonnder what a Gabriel Genesis would look like going forward. Do we get those delightful Pete solo albums but as Genesis albums. There is an interesting alternate timeline here. i definitely DO NOT think we get genesis going mega pop as fast as they did. But we might have still gotten So i think as a Genesis record. Mick
  4. Genesis-The Lamb (7/10) I decided to try again and my opinion still the same. Sides 1 and 2 are AMAZING. Maybe the best uniform pieces of music they made with Gabriel. BUT sides 3 and 4 it's like Pete just ran out of steam. Shorter link tracks....beep-boop nonsense. it just looses me completely. I can follow a loose story (i think, lol) in the first LP. the 2nd reeks off a bad monty python sketch. if you love this all the way through. i get it because there are great soundscapes throughout, but sorry for me and my ears. This just doesn't hang together as a complete listening experience. also i really do look at this more as Gabrials solo debut (unofficial) more than a true Genesis record even though their playing here is great. it's more of a Pete showcase. Mick
  5. Steven Wilson-Hand Cannot Erase (10/10) Easily his best solo work IMO Mick
  6. The lamb actually feels like Pete's first unofficial solo album more than it does a band effort. in fact it does sound a good bit like peter's first solo album that would come just a year later. i suppose that's a big problem i have with it. Mick
  7. Steven Wilson 1. Hand Cannot Erase 2. The Raven that Refused to Sing 3. iNSURGENTES 4. Grace For Drowning 5. To the Bone. 6. The Future Bites. couple Things. I really don't think To the bone is as bad as folks think. i really enjoy it but it had to go somewhere. First time i played The Future bites since release. Didn't like it then. Don't now. but the first 4. all great IMO. Mick
  8. i actually LOVE disc 1 but disc 2....... if it was a single disc it'd be top 5 for me. and if reports are to be believe at times the band wanted to throw pete out a window.........so after this Pete did it himself Mick
  9. Just did a whole run through of Porcupine Tree and will keep on going through Steven solo now. but i too am waiting for the whole album. Mick
  10. that's why i did PT, lol. getting Ready. Mick
  11. Honestly Lightbulb sun and Stupid dream could be swapped for me too. this is just how it fell for me in this moment. Really i enjoy everything from SD on. one of the best hot streaks in music and i'm including the new one in that. even Enjoyed the Incident this time. used to be cool on it. Mick
  12. Porcupine Tree 1. Fear of A BLank Planet 2. Deadwing 3. In Absentia 4. Stupid Dream 5. CLOSURE/CONTINUATION 6. Lightbulb Sun 7. The Incident 8. Signify 9. The Sky Moves Sideways 10. Up the Downstair 11. On the Sunday of Life As you can seee i'm not huge on the first 4 albums of this band. The floyd-y Spacy stuff is fine but i prefer when they went for more structured songs but kept elements of the dreamy, prog-y side. And Fear of a Blank planet has become my fav. I think it's their most complete album. Maybe the most Complete statement Wilson ever made.....solo work included. IMO. the recent one still holds up too BUT i miss Colin on Bass a TON. Mick
  13. Porcupine tree Stupid Dream (10/10) Lightbulb Sun (9/10) In Absentia (10/10) Mick
