5 stars "Fear of a Blank Planet" kind of surprised me cause it's an album that took me such a long time to get into. I think it's because it has a lot more longer songs on it than the other albums. I ended up getting into this album a lot because I acquired so many Porcupine Tree albums so fast that I would just throw them all on shuffle. "Anesthetize" was the first song that really caught my attention. It was long, but at the same time it has so many transitions that it really feels like 3-4 songs in one. In particular, the lines "We're lost in the mall, shuffling through the stores like zombies. But what is the point? What can money buy?" caught my attention, dragging me into listening to the entire album straight through. The song "Fear of a Blank Planet" also caught my attention because the music is pretty similar (although not exact) to "Anesthetize" and from there on I just grew to love it more and more, giving it the number 3 spot! Favorite song: This was almost a tie between "Fear of a Blank Planet" and "Anesthetize" but "Anesthetize" won because it was the first song I loved on this album and the music is just epic! Least favorite song: "Way Out of Here" I just don't feel like it has the same "oomph" as the other pieces, but it's still a song I enjoy to listen to.
