5 stars You are warned when wanting to vote 5 stars. A good idea that: Do you REALLY think this particular album is an "essential masterpiece"? the site's robot asks.

But the answer for this album is simple and clear:

Yes.

And why? Yes, well, that is of course always difficult to pinpoint. What is it that makes a good album an essential album?

The answer to that is individual.

For this album, it has a lot to do with what Steven Wilson does to the musical genre we all love: He is taking it somewhere new while remaining respectful to the roots. His oeuvre is bewilderingly broad and he is damned difficult to pigeon-hole.

I keep hearing snippets of early Crimson, shades of early Genesis, doses of mid-seventies Floyd and Tull, a lot of early Porcupine Tree and No Man but when I focus on the particular bit, it blends into the genius that is Wilson.

This Raven does sing - and it will refuse to leave my rotation for a long time, that's for sure.

TheBear | 5/5 |
