5 stars Not too sure why t is listed under Neo-Prog? My first association with t, and I assume others would see it too, is Marillion, or to be more precise, the Steve Hogarth Era Marillion, due to a relatively similar voice and style of singing. But despite this association, t does sounds much more adventures and proggy than the source of the comparison and definitely not like your average Neo Prog group.

t has always been a one man project, and here like on his previous albums, this Renaissance Man again plays everything himself, but I feel the music still manages to sound like a band; on this album even more so, than his previous outputs.

Solipsystemology is the third part of a trilogy (preceded by Fragmentropy and Epistrophobia), and like any good trilogy, the lyrics did probably require as much genius as the musical execution. I say probably, because the music is so overwhelming with its majestic soundscapes, emotional outburst and soaring instrumentation that I tend to drift away into some hypnotic state and somehow not really focus on listening to the words.

If you are a fan of t, I can only say: Buy this album, you will not be disappointed. I personally think it's better than its predecessor Epistrophobia, and on the same level as Fragmentropy, if not even better. And if you are not familiar with t, you will probably love this album if you tend to enjoy the current Marillion (and wish they would push a bit out of their comfort zone) or Anathema, a band quite similar in its emotional intensity.
