4 stars The Incident by Porcupine Tree, one of the modern day Prog giants. This album is another good addition to their fine discography. Some say this album is a alternative rock album, others complain that some parts sound too Industrial like NIN. I like how Steven Wilson adds different sounds of rock genres into this album. The album flows pretty well from start to the end. From the thundering start of Occams Razor to the title track Incident which has a awesome beat to it. And the highlight track for me is the 11 minute epic Time Flies, this track displays some lyrics that I really love. Also the Floydish guitar that many say is a ripoff, but I think it kicks ass. This will go down as one of the greatest PT tracks ever. The album ends with the atmospheric track I drive the Hearse, this song is very dark and has a great epic guitar solo. A great way to end this album. While I like this album very much it is not the best work they have done. FOABP is still the top PT album in my eyes. A good album, great musicianship and its gets 4 stars from me...... oh yeah I could of gone without the second disc, oh well.
