4 stars Are you a fan of Opeth and/or Porcupine Tree? And do you expect music in the same vein from Storm Corrosion, the collaboration of Opeth's Mikael Äkerfeldt and PT's Steven Wilson? Please skip this album. You will be very disappointed. Also if you like Blackfield, No-Man or Steven Wilson solo, no comparison to this work. Stop reading this article and look further. On the other hand, if you have an open mind towards the experiment and if you are capable of listening without prejudice, you may be in for a surprise. If you're still reading this, what can you expect from this long awaited and anticipated album? Let me try to give a description. Storm Corrosion is a blend of folk, ambient, Simon & Garfunkel-like community singing and a bunch of odd sounds. Lots of instrumental passages, acoustic guitar by Äkerfeldt and 10% of drums at the most, kind courtesy of Gavin Harrison of PT fame. Any wiser now? I hardly think so. Open up to this album and don't let it scare you off first time. Give it a couple of spins and let it grow on you. It lasts 50 minutes at the most, so it shouldn't be too much trouble. Like most other work that involves Steven Wilson this album takes a little getting used to, but eventually you will be abundantly rewarded!
