  1. I know I have expressed my lack of appreciation for SW solo stuff...but I have really been mesmerized by the song Drive Home. Wow. I almost don't want it to end.
  2. If he wasn't 100% into it, but he carried on for the fans, how good would it be? It would most likely be shit. So he did what he had to do, ended it on a high and made the albums that he wanted to, or had to. Except that The Incident wasn't a high in my opinion and was morphing into what sounded more like his solo stuff. I think Wilson's involvement with remastering classic Prog albums and the accolades for being the next Prog god pushed his solo writing beyond melodic and into experimental jazz almost, which I am not a fan of even a little. The PT Signify through FOABP to me are simply amazing. To me, there was a near perfect mix of melody and Progressiveness, like Rush in a way. Maybe PT ended when it needed to. I will carry a torch for the band as one of the best in its genre. Whatever the case he's not that guy anymore, the PT guy you admire, and it seems very unlikely he ever will be again. So you may as well accept reality and just enjoy the PT stuff that exists and forget about the solo stuff. No point constantly bitching about it, you've already made these points several times already. Yeah, I have a problem with missing great music and hoping for more. This thread was about just that. It won't come back and if it did, it will suck. However, I would really like to be happily surprised should it return.
  3. I listened to To The Bone and it really sounds like an attempt at mainstream pop radio. There may have been two songs I liked, Permanating being one. And Hand. Cannot. Erase. had a few as well, but again, no Wilson solo release is as immersive start to finish as PT. I will Spotify some Ghost I think. Currently Opeth has been one of my "new" favs.

  5. I like to think the other musicians had more creative input.
  6. The last couple days I listened to all of Steven Wilson's solo material. Many tunes I skipped at halfway through the songs and forced myself to listen to what I did. It just doesn't have what I liked about PT. OK. Enough of that. No use wishing PT would return. Probably wouldn't be the same anyway.
  7. This was a substance without style. A play on the words rest in peace. Wiseguyism. Didn't anyone read the blurb within? If not it exemplifies how social media effects us. Yeah, but putting "RIP" in the thread title, with all the celebrity deaths we've had the past two years, is not the coolest thing to do. Yes, I read your blurb -- I read it as a euphemism for Stern dying and doing his next show from heaven. OK, poor choice. Got it.

  9. Howard, I hope you can rest peacefully during your next nap and follow it up with another awesome show.
  10. On the Signals release, Digital Man clearly says Analog Kid.
  11. Yanny....that is all. How can the "Y" sound like the "L" sound. This is messed up. Even the end "anny" sounds nothing like "aurel".
  12. I've never been a fan myself. I clearly don't get it. Me too. So far anyway. That being said, it took over a year to get into Porcupine Tree.
  13. I have been really digging this three piece with a huge sound. Dream the Electric Sleep https://youtu.be/8TKTy6Z5Hls
