5 stars Grace For Drowning is one of my favorite pieces of music at the moment. It will continue to astonish me every time I decide to embark on its musical journey. Steven Wilson has been writing, recording, mixing, mastering, and producing for quite a long time now and has become my idol for doing so. To do all the work by yourself is quite amazing and even unbelievable but somehow, he manages to pull it off...and he has always managed to impress me with every piece of work he has released.

The album itself....well lets put it this way. It is a masterpiece.

From the very beginning, all the way to the very end, the music seems to all flow together and become part of me as I listen. Although at my first listen of this album, I was looking for something else within the music...which I did not find (This seems to be what I always do with new albums...expecting something else) I put the album away for a while. I came back to it and played it all the way through and was blown away. It all makes sense. Steven has a very clever way of piecing his music together, so it sounds as if it were meant for you at the exact moment you listen to it. Many things about this album inspire, musically and even my life choices. Some may say I'm crazy but I have listened to this album while taking a journey into my mind with Magical Mushrooms. The album made me cry, feeling loss, feeling hope, feeling love, feeling as If I am my own person and thats exactly who I should be.

Overall, I love every minute of this album and I encourage you to listen to it all the way through. My favorite tracks (even though the whole album as one is my favorite) I would have to say would be Deform To Form A Star, No Part Of Me, and Like Dust I Have Cleared From My Eye. I have realized from this album that all music, no matter who from should be looked under different lights, in new ways. The music contained on this album has too much for me to explain so instead of me telling you about should be listening to Grace For Drowning yourself and seeing how it affects you and your life.

Thank you Steven Wilson.
