1 stars Fellow reviewer ProgShine summed it all up beautifully in their review of this exceptionally dreadful endeavour.

It seems the vast amount of reviewers here at PA think this guy is like the second coming of the Messiah. You see Rembrandt; I see kindergarten finger painting. You hear Mozart; I hear screeching harpies. You think he's a genius; I think he's a masterful fraud.

I've tried and tried and tried both with Hedgehog Shrub and his solo stuff, but I just do NOT like the work of Steven Wilson. And at this point I don't want to waste hours of my life listening to an album 187 times trying to get into it.

And please, don't even get me started on his classic 2015 release: Banal.Beyond.Endurance.

Obviously, your mileage will vary.

Grace and peace, Cylli
