In Absentia, Spirit of Eden is just one of those albums I don't see the appeal in.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

enjoy...I listened to that yesterday and damn if the shear majesty and beauty of it didn't bring tears to my eyes.  Incredible album


Just listened to Spirit of Eden and loved this style but this is sort of an apples to oranges vote.  Depends if I am in a heavier/darker mode then I am in the PT camp, if in a jazzier/solitude mode then Talk Talk.  Oh what the hell, going out of my comfort zone into the Talking world...tough choice nevertheless. 


Clap

good way to look at it. I actually really like this PT album.. got me into the group before all the 'fans' ruined the PT experience (not helped by the sh*tty albums that followed it).  The way I see it .. if I really want heavier and dark.. there are SO many better albums.. but for the solicitude and instrospective musical moments there simply aren't that many better albums than Spirit of Eden. Thus the easy vote.

To be fair, his post WAS album-related. I just made it more accurate to my opinion when I responded. LOL

LOLoh who am kidding... I really like this album.. and wouldn't vote for it even if SWilson offered to piss on me if I was on fire.  I do need to start a poll.. worst alltime great PA fans. DT's or PT's. Wink

Porcupine Tree, In Absentia.

Now I don't mind PT but Eden is one of those albums that just gets under one's skin. Its a bottler.

I could of course suggest it even has a touch of Marillion about it. Shocked

Seriously, I've been sitting here listening to it and it could be a somewhat off beat Marillion album.

In Absentia, although Spirit of Eden is very close.

Didn't much like Spirit of Eden. Sleepy velvets. Vote for the Porcupine.
