All bands including the very greatest have a shelf life though. Ok Rush have the shelf life of an oak tree but most bands explore a limited number of ideas before it becomes self evident that they are repeating themselves. PT probably have about 6-7 albums that are solid 4-5 star albums in PA terms but it would be sad if they started to drift into 3 star territory. SW can try different things now with different musicians and all three of his solo albums are distinctly different to me . Perhaps PT was beginning to become too rigid stylistically to be that interesting for much longer.

If this does turn out to be the end for PT and The Incident is their swan song then I'm perfectly happy with that.  Conversely to most opinion I think The Incident is their best studio album, and I think it's a good idea to go out on top.

The solo albums are fantastic and I'm really pleased with the way SW is headed.

Maybe the break will do them some good and they come back fresh.  I'm one of those who didn't like The Incident.  Hopefully it's not the end either way.
