5 stars This was the start for me of Porcupine Tree, Deadwing was the first album i purchased from this band, now they are on of my all time favorites, no doubt. What an album this is, I happen to love Porcupine Tree putting metal in their music. From start to finish i love this album. The opener title track Deadwing is epic opener with some great guitar work on this one, i would love to see this played live someday. Next is Shallow, one of the weaker songs on the album, a hit single for the tree, a okay track. Next is Lazuras, at first i could not get into this at all, then i purchased Ariving somwhere but not here live DVD and the live version is way better, very good song. Halo is hard rock track with very good bass playing by Colin Edwin, another strong track. My favorite song of the album Arriving Somwhere but not here, what an amazing song this is, this is their next best song to Anesthetize, this song song shows the whole band shine, Gavin drumming is amazing, and Steven Wilson's guitar is just outstanding during the heavy parts of this song, one of my favorite songs of all time really. Mellotron Scratch is has some a very good vocal performance from Steven Wilson, i love the way this song builds up. Another fave of mine is the short hard rocking track Open car, i seen them live in Kansas City and then song was performed great, Jon Wesley and Steven Wilsons vocals go great together, and some great riffs added by wilson. The start of something beautiful is the last really good song on the album, this one is kind of like mellotron. The last track Glass Arm Shattering is more of a mellow closer that fades away, i would expect a better closer from Porcupine Tree, well if you count Shesmovedon. Overall i love this album and this band keeps getting better album to album. I will give this album 5 stars because this was the start for me of Porcupine Tree and they create such beautiful music. One of the few great/original bands of today.
