5 stars 10, cum laude. The Genius that Resonated to the Stars

Enormous. A "desert island" record. This is the magnum opus he had inside, and finally came out: full of all kind of musical passages. Emotional, adventurous, classical, retro, melodious. Not every single second of this "The Raven..." is devoid of meaning. In each of the 6 gems, there are plenty of full musical burst (guitars, flutes, keyboards, drums, and many others!) that let my spline vibrate and resonate, thanks also to a superb group of musicians. Oh, and stories also, supporting the whole. I won't make a song by song review - it would be insufficient to describe the fact that this has to be considered one of the most totally immersions in rock/prog music, with a stellar production (again, he beat himself on this). I've finally received a music statement from Steven Wilson, raising emotions, and it seems he also had FUN in making this - something he was missing a bit since "The Incident" with Porcupine Tree. I wonder, can be any future for music, after this one? It looks like a definitive monument...but the answer is "The Raven..." itself: there is always future for music, when talent, ideas and emotions fuse together.
