Hmm... a little less morose version of FOABP with some Deadwing and Lightbulb sun thrown in there?

Sounds quite fantastic to me. It seems like a pretty diverse suite, and I like that. In the medley I've heard some softer parts, some very heavy parts, and even something that reminded me a bit of Indie rock. Also, in the medley where some very interesting sounding synth parts. The medley also sounds very dark like FOABP, and I really like that. The mood FOABP has is amazing.

I'm not going to water down my opinion, but again it's just my opinion. I'm not really a fan of Porcupine Tree and FOABP bored me a lot of the time. I was thinking of getting this album to give them another try but after listening to the preview I'm pretty sure I won't care for it at all.

Pretty much what I thought - The main sections of it were much more Alternative rock than prog, not bad by any means.

I love the "I was born in 67... The year of Sargent Peppers" section, awesome stuff...

Oh, absolutely. Brilliant! Clap
 
Very 'Floydian' Guitar work here and there, as well, it seems. Haven't heard that side of PT for nearly a decade! Clap

I was just thinking that... Reminds me of "The Moon Touches Your Shoulders" for some reason, albeit much more upbeat

Yeah. The mellower sections of this album seem to be very akin to the early PT days, while the heavier sh*t on it is more modern and in-line with their edgier side. Best of both worlds, if you ask me. I'm absolutely stoked, now! I couldn't stop grooving at that crazy rhythm section near the end of the preview.

One thing I have to say about this is the more I listen to it, the more it seems it will be a classic album... Just has that feel to it, and after the first listen, I could remember nearly all of the riffs...

I know, right? I felt the same way about it! Unbelievable, but honestly, I think PT are better than ever on this one, and for me to say that merely based on a preview track, that's saying a lot.

There seems to be an interesting mix of the old PT, and a newer edgier, more angular metal disposition. Needless to say, I'm counting down the days untill the release.

Roll on September 14!

I can barely wait...

Does anyone know if they'll be releasing a deluxe edition, like a DIGIPAK or anything?

Not sure, but if they are going to release something special after the initial release date, I'm not waiting for that. I must buy it as soon as it hits store shelves, special edition or not.

I was thinking the same thing, but, if there is some sort of preorder bonus... I'll go for that!

If its post-release, then screw it... Unless it has B-Sides
