5 stars Impressive work by Steven Wilson, "The Raven That Refused to Sing (And Other Stories)" is an album which sounds more like a work inspired in Edgar Allan Poe (maybe that is why he chose to work with engineer and classic producer Alan Parsons). All the songs are full of excellent progressive movements and every single instrument has a sublime sound, not for nothing he selected the best musicians for the album: Guthrie Govan and Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats) on guitar and drums, respectively; Nick Beggs (Steve Hackett Band / Kajagoogoo) on bass guitar; Theo Travis on flutes / clarinet / saxophone and Adam Holzman (Miles Davis Band) on piano and keyboards. All the songs honor the classic seventies sound mixed with a powerful new sound. All the songs are incredible that it is difficult to determine which is the best track, even though, my favorite track is The Raven That Refused To Sing and of course Luminol. Impressive album!
