4 stars This album starts off with one of the band's most boring and plain parts but then it becomes something magical. Even classic prog dude, Rob Fripp is on it to add texture and it is amazing.

I think this is the first one Steven mixed himself or at least in a while cos I know he didn't do In Absentia. The art is amazing too, Lasse Hoil is incredible.

The long one "Anthesthetize" is the best track clearly and you can almost forgive the opening track being so tedious as the rest is PROG! "Sentimental" is also really good for the lyrics. My 3rd fav PT album and much preferred in a lot of way to most of his solo stuff apart from Raven.
