5 stars Mind Numbing!

Steven Wilson is a god!

This album is without a doubt the best record released in my lifetime (birth yr, 1988). I've spent all of my life listening to music of the past (60s-70s), and that's not a problem at all, I love it, but I used to think, will there ever be a band/album that could touch the brilliance of the past?? I discover Porcupine Tree and think to myself; they defiantly have the potential, especially with releases such as Signify and In Absentia. With the release of Fear Of A Blank Planet I was completely convinced. This album is FLAWLESS, EVERY track is beyond brilliant. What a concept, each track fits so, so well, the album just weaves; mind numbing is what it is. There's no need to go track by track, I don't even look at the tracks, just start from the beginning and the length is perfect (50 min.). I can't wait for the next PT release, but there's no avoiding a letdown, but that's ok. I can't state it any simpler, this is a must have for any prog collection.

I'm going to start my 5 deserted island albums in my reviews; these are in no order of importance, just in order as I review them. Fear Of A Blank Planet is one of the five I must have, #1.
