5 stars Like a rich banquet of sounds and emotions, "In Absentia" delivers musical delights which positively destroy expectations with powerful, dynamic songs, and flawless production-- all to the elegant playing of these four artists who have, in my opinion, created one of the finest recordings ever.

There is not a single moment of boredom, cliché, or awkwardness to be found here-- the songs soar with meaning and poignancy. Creative, energetic playing and lyrics distinguish "In Absentia" even among the band's already distinguished works, and is the only album of theirs (to date) which I would say is a masterpiece. It has something for everyone, and is the finest example of Steven Wilson's talents as a musician and songwriter.

An absolute must have, and a contemporary cornerstone of progressive music.
