5 stars 9.5/10


Certainly the most beautiful and depressing album that Porcupine Tree has created, and his best along with the acclaimed In Absentia and Fear of a Blank Planet.

Like many others here, I'm a fan of Lightbulb Sun. A BIG fan. this album is very, very, very catchy and contains some of the best and most beautiful songs and agardáveis ​​this fantastic band has created. It's so sweet, so nice to hear that I do not get tired of listening to the songs over and over.

Lightbulb Sun does not deviate from the proposal of its predecessors, but there is emotion in the songs here. Steven Wilson is so good singer and guitar player, I think, and his style of singing sad (but not as much as others out there) is really the highlight here. The album features songs so easy to hear how much more experimental Spare - but all are on the same level, there is no weaker than the other. The album also already showed signs (vague, but existing) progressive metal that will be explored in its successor, as well as the material remains of the psychedelic band's early work - in short, is a place where you can find all the Porcupine Tree integrates into your sound.

5 stars!
