Unfortunately I donīt like the last song of the album.

This is the best album Iīve heard in the last 2 years. Steven Wilson has developed a sound that is a little heavier than the other records but without eliminating the amazing moments of beauty that he gave us in every record (Maybe Steven has developed a more Mikael Åkerfeldt-ish sound).

Fear of a blank Planet

The opening track and also the one that has a video to promote the album. This song itīs like hearing a normal PT song but it has something else, I donīt know exactly what is (I compare that song with Blackest Eyes but the feeling is different). 4.8 of 5

My ashes

This track is soft. Itīs the Steven Wilsonīs trademark. A moment of beauty. I really appreciate the vocals on this track. The music makes you feel like floating. 4.6 of 5

Anesthetize

Just listen to this song... You wonīt be disappointed. A complete masterpiece. This is one of the tracks that makes you feel happy that there are still geniuses making music. It has 2 soft parts and an almost- headbanging part. In this track is where I feel more the influence of Mikael Åkerfeldt. But take in consideration that Steven have influenced Mikael. So, itīs like concatenating both geniuses. 5 of 5

Sentimental

Itīs like My Ashes... a moment of beauty after a moment of brutality... The song is incredible and fits perfectly well tho the concept of the album. 4.5 of 5

Way out of here

Incredible track. The vocals are amazing. Iīve seen that in this forum the people donīt talk about the lyrics a lot. But I recommend you to hear the lyrics of this album (Steven Wilson said that he was inspired by the issues talked in Pink Floydīs Dark Side of the Moon and Radioheadīs Ok Computer). 4.8 of 5

Sleep Together

This song is the only one that I donīt like. Lyrically it fits well, but I donīt like the music. Itīs like an ambient song. 3.5 of 5
