First of all i'd like to say that my rating is not related with the fact that this album is "prog" or not in an old fashion way. I think this debate is so futile.... I know one thing this album takes me on a journey every time it plays on my stereo. That's the important thing. When an album can reach you in a different way every single time you listen to it, i'd guess you could call that a piece of art. This album is just that.

PT asn't sound so cohesive on an album since Signify. Stupid Dream, Lightbulb Sun, In Absentia and Deadwing were all pretty darn good albums, collections of songs... But Fear of a Blank Planet is more then just a collection of songs, this album has an entity of itself. It reminds me a bit of Meddle by PF... it contains the most heaviest and yet the most introspective music PT as produced so far.

With FOABP Porcupine Tree has reached a musical maturity that many bands can only dream of... Now I guess you old progsters will debate if PT is prog or not... It just doesn't matter, just enjoy the musicianship... and PT is certainly on top of their game.
