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.

Rating: 9 Beautiful music. And what I really like about Steven Wilson is that none of his records sounds similar to another.

Rating: 4 If this album was released in the 70's, it would become one of those albums that people pick up and listen to solely because of its obscurity. That should tell how sub-par this albums is.

Perhaps it would if your claim was true. Care to explain how this album is sub-par?

Rating: 7 I really don't understand why everyone is calling this album a masterpiece... I mean, it's good and all, but hardly anything special. It just kinda plays off tropes from classic prog. The only thing I found really "standout" about it was the production, which was usual Steven Wilson greatness.
