3 stars I must be missing the point. This album although OK, just didn't excite me at all. I know it's not a Porcupine Tree album, but seeing as Steve Wilson is the main PT man, I thought this would have some of the spark that the PT albums would have. I bought the two disc version, and feel that after many repeated plays that it could have been scaled down to a one track disc. I have bought a few new albums this year but must say that Grace For Drowning isn't in my top ten. I like music that really makes me sit up and think. I want music to make me buzz, hard to describe but GFD just doesn't have the wow factor, like for example The Tangents Comm and Sean Filkins first solo effort War And Peace & Other Short Stories. Steve Wilsons production is second to none, but I will probably pick out the best parts of the double disc, to play at my leisure. For me only three stars I'm affraid.
