Sounds really good. I'd say it's better than Insurgentes, The Incident and Deadwing's best songs combined.

I've pre-ordered it and haven't received it yet, but I've heard a few tracks already. What I've heard so far is fantastic,but all three of those albums are damn good, Deadwing being one of PT's best. So, I just can't agree with you there.

Hello,

Thank you for your recent purchase with us. We appreciate your business.

Typically, pre-orders are shipped out as the release date approaches, as we intend for arrival as close to the release date as is possible.

Unfortunately, we have recently been notified by our distributor that we will not be receiving these items at our facility until Monday September 26th. AngryLOL

I went for the super duper deluxe version.

What's your take on it? I preordered the vinyl from Amazon, with plans to "stick" to it.

Mine has been shipped, but I've not received it yet. From the snippets I've heard, though, it could rival Opeth's Heritage as my album of the year.
Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...

One of the best and most diverse things SW has ever created. Excellent album.

I heard it yesterday and I think it's just amazing... Which raises some questions. Given that his last few albums have been so bad, was he just hogging his best material so he could put it out under his own name rather than as a band?

This is possibly the proggiest thing he's ever done, even more so than early PT albums. Early PT is space/psych prog like Pink Floyd, whereas some of this stuff wouldn't be so out of place on Crimson's Lizard or another more eclectic/jazzy/technical prog album.With more thorough listens this may just rank up with his best.

Also I think that there are parts of this album that sound how Heritage SHOULD HAVE sounded.

Yes. Welcome to my DNA was horrendous, laughable even. The Incident was the worst record ever under the PT label. Insurgentes was very good though. Fear of a Blank Planet was cringe worthy in parts but great in others. 

Actually I'd say this is his best thing since Deadwing, because I didn't cringe or even dislike a single part on the whole album whereas on every album after Deadwing I cringed at least once.

The death metal vocals on that one track (I don't know the name) are interesting. It's really true that the farther Mikael Akerfeldt gets from metal, the closer Steven Wilson gets.

I think that The Incident is an outstanding album.
