4 stars What has always bothered me with Porcupine Tree is the amount of songs they cram into each release. I mean, strength in number is all well, but when you put 16 tracks on an album you are bound to either have a strain of monotony or schizophrenia, I think both are apparent in most of the works of Steve Wilson and his incredible band. Fear of a Blank Planet is therefor welcomed with open arms by me; finally a record with a reasonable amount of songs and a sound that remains consistent throughout the entire listen. This is really the one album of Porcupine Tree to get, since it's the most wholesome of their releases to date.

I don't think there is much else to add really. Anyone who listens to more than two minutes from any of their releases will understand that this is both virtuoso instrumentalists and top notch songwriting.

A fantastic record! 4/5
