5 stars To paraphrase Bines this is"prog" but not as we know it .... seems to be a prevailing theme.

I was quite distraught when I discovered PT in the last few years. Here was a band witha sound that for me filled an enormous vacuum between my adolescence with Yes & Rush (with Thin Lizzy, Rory Gallagher and Free playing a big though not prog part) and the family thing.

Having listed to the back catalogue (and I mean the lot), bought the odd limited relaese (only one or two missing and listed again and again and again ... I love this album. Voyage 34 is my prog fave & coma devine is my personal WOW record, but when I check out my play lists its Deadwing that tops the charts.

There is a depth and darkness that I love in this album. Steve Wilson is never going to win the Ian Gillan/Ronnie James Dio wailing contest but hey it's almost a pre-requisite of porg that your vocalist is weak on the normal scale (Jon Anderson/Geddy Lee) ... but FMe do Steve's vocals work.

In my extremely limited & humble opinion I think this album is by avery long way the most listenable aproachable engaging album PT have produced.

To me 7.5 stars but the misers here only allow 5.

For Bones .... Deadwing IS PROG and if you don't realise it go call up the Doctor step into the TARDIS and head back to the 70s.
