5 stars Porcupine Tree seem to get better with each album. Some say they like their space rock earlier days or others like their more recent material where they involve more metal. Fear Of a Blank Planet combines both. I like what this is album is about also. Steven Wilson picked a good subject for a concept album. The title track sounds like something it would be on Deadwing. A good hard rock track for a opener. My Ashes is a great mellow song, what i like about this song is Richard Barbieri's synths in the background it goes great with the song, then it leads into the greatest porcupine tree song of all time Anesthetize. The first time i listened to this song i did not realize it was about 17 minutes, the song flows so well. Sections of this song are very hard heavy metal and this song also contains great drumming by Gavin Harrison. The song ends in a beautiful slow spacey guitar. Sentimental is the weakest track on the album but it also has a great acoustic performance by Steven Wilson. Way out of here is my second favorite song on the album and I love the lyrics, very dark. Also a great solo by Steven Wilson. Then the album ends with sleep together a good closer, a very angry/dark song. Each is song is Porcupine Tree at their best. Steven,Colin,Richard, and Gavin give their best performance on this album. One Of my favorite albums of all time.
