5 stars This is truly awesome. You don't need to wait for this one to grow on you, for the initial impact when you first hear it is breathtaking! I know a few moaned about Fear of a Blank Planet - I didn't really understand that, because that also was breathtaking - especially Anethetise (which I still think is the best rock track of the 2000's so far). Anyway, whatever those few felt was missing from Fear of a Blank Planet will be found here - more self-indulgence, guitar solos to make your mouth water, drumming of the highest quality, beautiful synthesisers, great singing and very good production. I know I'm biassed as I always give PT 5 stars, but I can't help it because I really honestly feel all the albums deserve it (except perhaps Stupid Dream) - however, this really is PT at their finest - Iwould give it 6 stars if I could. Progressive rock - too too right!!! Whatever Steve Wilson says this is Progressive rock with a capital P - the new stuff with metal that the metal-heads like. I'm telling - Prog rock is becoming cool again for the first time since 1976. With bands like PT, Mars Volta, Sigur Ros, Oceansize, the wave is rising. I know a lot of you old proggies don't like the metal bits, but now PT are doing it with true skill and have developed it to a new plain. I took 10 metal-heads under the age of 20 to a PT gig in Bristol, and they all loved it!!! 2 of them tracked them down at Download and got all their signatures for me, but really wanted to meet them themselves!

Get yourselves a copy if you can - AWESOME!
