4 stars Deadwing for me is an excellent album by Porcupine Tree. The build ups and choruses in some of the songs have great hooks, musically very solid and at times nice and dark. There is a definite prog feel to Deadwing more so than it's predecessor In Absentia.The self titled opener starts the album off with some gutsy playing. ' Shallow' quite a unusual ballady piece, the mellowest PT I have heard. One of the following tracks ' Halo' another highlight on the album displays the darker side of PT. My favourite piece is next and it is a 10 minute masterpiece, ' Arriving Somewhere But Not Here' has all the makings of a true progressive song. You can hear so many influences but still PT maintain their individuality for the sound they create. The album closes with ' Glass Arm Shattering' another strong piece. Highly recommended to progressive rock/metal fans.
