5 stars You know an album is good if you get 10 people together and chances are good they will all name a different song as their favorite. There are so many highlights and each song has its own unique sound that there is something to like for anyone who likes progressive rock. There is metal on the album on several of the songs, but only really two or three that could be called fully metal. There are beautiful soundscapes and wonderful guitars, both electric and acoustic. This is Steven Wilson at his peak but the other musicians contribute mightily. The production is clear and each instrument is given space. The Sound of Muzak, Trains, and .3 are my favorites. The last song, Collapse the Light into Earth, is my least favorite but is mentioned by some as one of the best. Easily five stars. A masterpiece.
