As a follow up to my PT songs poll...
I'm voting for Fear - In Absentia or Deadwing is probably the best album as a whole, but Fear is like a continuous piece on its own - like one big magnum opus, which does it for me. The Sky Moves Sideways is similar, and another favourite and Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun are great, and the Incident and Signify - well, they're all great albums. Except maybe On the Sunday of Life... Wink
So what say you?

I was going to vote in absentia by postal vote, but I'm here now so I'll vote for the illuminating Lightbulb Sun album. Smile

I'm just recently checking out this group finally. I've been working my way through their discography, but I've thoroughly listened to all these studio recordings. I'm having trouble really getting into the psych/space rock early outings, as I tend to get bored. I'm sure they will get more appealing over time (they already have really). I was surprisingly underwhelmed with In Absentia based on how highly it is spoken of (though it was still awesome). So it's a tough choice between Deadwing and Lightbulb Sun. I suppose I'll go Deadwing.

I voted for lightbulb sun but I suspect in absentia will get the most votes.

I hope so, I think it's their most masterful album, if you know what I mean. Fear is just better.

Coma Divine. And The Raven that Refused to Sing among Porcupine Tree related albums (I actually like it more than the PT studio albums I have heard).

I think it's good someone started this poll. As odd as it may sound I really don't think Porcupine Tree shows up in poll's as much as they should. Maybe people are starting forget about them. Not sure.

Yikes. Tough poll. Ok, Deadwing but it could have easily have been anyone of 4 others.
