4 stars after a few average releases leading up to 2002's In Absentia, Deadwing came out to high expectations. and delivered.

personally, Deadwing (the title song and Arriving Somewhere... were amongst the first few Porcupine Tree songs i heard.

the 2 songs i've mentioned above were totally captivating...serene at times, melancholy interludes and explosive riffing at others, this exemplifies Porcupine Tree's brilliance.

thrown in a few more superlative songs like Lazarus (one of their most beautifully crafted and enchanting "songs"), The Start Of Something Beautiful, and Glass Arm Shattering and the brooding, evocative Mellotron Scratch (which you really need to hear at least a dozen times before appreciating), and you have a coup-de-grace of a 5-star album.

PS: i am yet to get my hands on the "extras" release of the DVD-A edition - any suggestions on where i should be trying?
