5 stars So, this is Porcupine Tree's 2007 release, Fear of a Blank Planet. Critically acclaimed, this album is also their best selling. Although the group is not very well known outside of prog circles, it is very popular among those who enjoy the type of music that Porcupine Tree plays (which draws from many styles -- eclectic). This album does not disappoint, and though I was fairly apathetic after first listen, the music quickly grew on me. In fact, I though that the epic Anesthetize was the weakest track on here, and now it's one of my favorites.

The music is still fairly ambient, but not to the extent that the group's earlier albums were. There's a nice alternative flair on the album, but there are still many prog elements. The album's theme is dark, and the music corresponds to the lyrics, which are the worst part of the album really.

Each song has its own unique twist and is high quality. The album flows perfectly from start to finish and has good transitions from lighter parts to heavier parts. Overall, I highly recommend listening to this album, but with an open mind because PT's music is not for everyone.

Mystery | 5/5 |
