Since there's no point in talking about Porcupine Tree in the foreseeable future, let's just focus on this new Steven Wilson's solo album as it is. I've been wanting to write about it ever since I first heard it and figured it'd be an easy feat. Making up my mind about it turned out to be harder than I thought for, I have to admit, surprising reasons.

Cool album, I felt that the first part is better than the second one. The solo towards the end of "Drive Home" is amazing and the bass in the first track mainly, but in general the album is so good.
