4 stars Steve's Album Of The Day : Deadwing, by Porcupine Tree (2005) . Playing this CD today I am reminded just how great Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree can be. The sound is somewhat of a contemporary reinvention of 70's rock, bringing a Pink Floyd style of progressiveness together with Rush's driven force ( Spiced with a bit of Radiohead ). Now, I'm not saying anything new here, because most people familiar with the band have already made these associations. But on Deadwing, Porcupine Tree just make the fusion work so well , and the ride so enjoyable, that's it's an easy record to come back to over and over. Fine post-millennial prog. Hat's off to my friend Bob Gorham for pushing me in PT's direction back in the early 00's. Perhaps it's time to push yourself to listen to Porcupine Tree and Deadwing as well ?


Highlights : Deadwing, Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, Lazarus, Open Car
