5 stars Most people claim 'In Absentia' to be the best album of the more recent Porcupine Tree sound, even their best album period. With this I personally have to disagree. While 'In Absentia' is undoubtedly a good album, 'Deadwing' is better.

The emotion of the albums comes across very strongly to me in almost every track, be it one of the rockers or a softer number. And the styles certainly do vary on this album. From the hard rock of 'Shallow,' to the slower, more psychedelic style of the beautiful 'Arriving Somewhere But Not Here.'

The musicianship is great, as always for PT, and Steven Wilson's lyrics and vocals are as beautiful and haunting as ever.

Do not overlook 'Deadwing' when buying some PT, you'll really be missing out.

Degolas | 5/5 |
