The Truth
4 stars I gotta say Steven Wilson keeps surprising me with what his music is going to sound like and with this album I was plesantly surprised. Although it sounds a tad bit self-indulgent Steven Wilson has some of the best songs he's ever written on this album. Harmony Korine is an example sounding like a mix between Arriving Somewhere But Not Here and Moon Touches Your Shoulder. All of the songs kind of have that gentle feel like Porcupine Tree songs such as My Ashes, Sky Moves Sideways, and as mentioned before, Arriving Somewhere But Not Here and Moon Touches Your Shoulder but have a sound thats more electronic yet doesn't sound to modern. He is still tipping his hat to the classic prog bands still mainly Pink Floyd but there are hints here and there of Krautrock and even VDGG. I almost feel sorry for not rating it higher but the music just didn't stick with me long even though it is wonderfully performed. Some tracks that stick out to me are Harmony Korine, No Twilight Within the Courts of the Sun, the title track, and Get All You Deserve.
The Truth | 4/5 |
