5 stars Porcupine Tree has always had the ability to produce records that require alittle bit of growing before you can appreciate them in full. While In Absentia is no exception once it's on you it's stays there. Tracks like Blackest Eyes, Gravity Eyelids, and Strip the Soul are attention grabbing at the least filled with their own twists and turns. Other tracks such as Trains, Prodigal and Heartattack in a Layby show a different side of them with acoustics and grabbing melodies to further the pleasure. There are, however, tracks that many underrate. These being .3, Wedding Nails and Lips of Ashes but they are all great in their own respect. In all this album is definitly worth owning for any real fan of music that loves a good cd that can be listened to from start to finish.
Hambone | 5/5 |
