Joey, that was an excellent interview, very informative.  Thanks so much.  It's great that someone of the stature of SW will find that sort of time to communicate with his fans.

well done, journalist 5 star award!StarStarStarStarStar
 
 
i have a copy of "Fear of a Blank Planet", i found it follows the style of the two previous albums but is much deeper and darker, and of course includes the epic "Anesthetize " featured on their recent tour.
as steve says make of it what you will, all the hooks and signatures are there but will take time to absorb all its facets - another PT  classic!Clap

Joey, you make us proud.  A very intelligent and informative interview on all points.  Thanks for asking about radio coverage.  He's basically saying that one has to seek out new music these days rather than having it broadcast to everyone free of charge, especially to those who didn't know such innovative music was out there.  Way to go, Joey!

Fantastic interview, Joey, well done -

It would appear it is now safe to call them prog-rock; huzzah!

Great interview!  And I'm not really even a PT fan Smile  Actually, I haven't much cared for what I've heard from the previous two albums, but this new one has sparked my curiosity.  And, no, not because it sounds more "progressive" Smile

I found his comments about music categorization quite interesting.  And I found that I totally agree with his assessment.  Good music is good music and it is a shame that on this site we are sort of forced into considering the "proggyness" of music when we rate it.  So subjective and unfair to the musicians.  But as a prog snob, I can live with that LOL

Absolutely wonderful interview, much better than anything you're going to read in the conventional rock press!

Steven Wilson comes across as an outspoken and truly intelligent artist. I've only just started discovering Porcupine Tree, but this makes me want to find out much more about them.

I really respect SW.  He seems to know that there are always going to be obstacles but he isn't really one to get upset about them.  Like he said, he just does what he does.

Excellent interview by and with a great guy!
 
SW is indeed a wonderful person - talented, intelligent, knows what he's talking about - and now we can also add 'nice and friendly' to that list.
 
BTW: FOADP is indeed a Masterpiece.
