(As you can see) I'm quite in Steven Wilson mood these days, and Grace for Drowning is undoubtedly a terrific album, very eclectic, less ambient than its predecessor (in my opinion), more well-constructed and more diverse in song structure. What do you think of the album? What is your favorite song on there? I have to say my answer isn't very imaginative: Deform to Form a Star.

My favorites are Deform, Sectarian, Raider II and Remainder. I'll throw a vote to Raider II. It took me a while to actually listen to it and enjoy it, so i'll give it a vote.

The album overall bored me, but "Sectarian" is one of the greatest things Steven Wilson has ever done.

I really liked this album, pretty much. I must say Raider 2 is my favourite, though Sectarian and Remainder the black Dog are both really great too.

Deform is stunning. This album's a bit too weird for me, but like any record with SW, there are lots of great parts.

Raider II.

But the whole album is great, it's already one of my favourite albums of all time.

After my initial enthusiasm (placed it as my favourite album last year) I seem to have cooled off a bit. Its a bit scary that I can barely recall any songs at all. I know its much to do with atmosphere and 'feel' but I should be able to recall something. Anyway I voted Raider II.

Almost every track here deserves to be called the best. It's a truly outstanding album in every term, probably the best in Crossover Prog section.

Voted for Deform to Form a Star.

No part of me, but the whole album is great with a unique beautifully morbid tone

"Like Dust I've Cleared From My Eyes". That's not to say that I will take ambient over anything in rock music, but there are times when ... it will take me. Awesome album, though. Perchance, album of the month.

My rankings go something like:
Remainder
Raider II
No Part of Me
Deform
Index
Track One
Postcard
Belle de Jour
Sectarian
Like Dust
title track
Raider Prelude
 
So Remainder it is. Possibly my favourite song of what turned out to be a very stellar year for music.
