4 stars Despite the incident, time flies ...

"The Incident" is my third experience with the Porcupine Tree after the wonderful "In Absentia"and "Fear of a Blank Planet". As good as "Fear ...", but far from being better than" In Absentia ", this be a strong album, although not in all its moments.

The problem in "The Incident " is the title track, which dominates the first disc is quite disconected ones.Actually, were it not for some of its sections and the second disc, I would have given 2 or 3 stars.I will be frankly, I love progressive rock epics, but I think a song that is already over 40 minutes is too much, even if it is divided into several sections, each one song (the exceptions to this are "Thick as Brick" Jethro's Tull and "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence Dream Theater). The best moments here are" The Blind House" and, of course, " Time Flies ", which is the centerpiece of the album and whose middle section reminds me of " Animals "Pink Floyd.

Disc 2 is much better, and is the reason which I give 4 stars.Man, I gotta say, I think I'm in love with "Black Dahlia" ...

In the end, I had the feeling that this album deserved something between 3 and 4 stars 4 stars.I think that would be fairer.
