Prog Reviewer
4 stars May hurt speakers if instructions not followed.

So much informations has been said about this album and it made tremendous ruckuss at lauching, and 3 years later, the hard edges, the distorded voices, the sublime drumming and subtle keys are doing the trick from 0:00 till the end.

In Absentia will seduce the heavy rockers. It's hard not to react when your speakers are sizzling like a guitar soaked in a deep fryer. The emphasis on such a cracking, distorded guitar sound will convince you that Porcupine Tree IS the prince of the new generation in progressive music: a new approach based on today's production and tomorrow's writing. The songs are really easy to get into with mellow parts and jump starts of pure adrenaline fury.

Call it nu-metal or neo-grunge, whatever, this is an album to play at people who'd like to get out of the same old radio-pattern of Linkin Park, Three Days Grace, Three Doors Down or System of a Down.

Long live the new King!
