3 stars This is really just a placeholder until I think of something better to write. Porcupine Tree is a band I've been pretty lukewarm about. I think all of the elements are there for a pretty awesome band, I just think that those elements are used in pretty predictable and traditional ways. There are a few good songs here in Deadwing "Lazerus", "Arriving Somewhere...", and "Mellotron Scratch" all good songs. It just seems like transitions into metal in most of the songs seems a little forced, and the metal sections themselves are only fair to middling. Nothing that will knock my socks off. Steven Wilson's lyrics also leave a lot to be desired. However, the way the songs work together and the general ambiance of the album to amount to an amusing if not interesting listening experience.
