Been wanting to get this for a while and Amazon had the right price... Hubby and I love Steve and this is a very good example of what he does as a solo artist other than his better known projects.. worth buying, Track 3 is sublime...

This is a brilliant album, a great follow on from Insurgentes.

This album is a totally different affair from his first solo effort. It's a lot more introspective and darker, whereas Insurgentes was quite a rocky affair.

loved the cd, but as i purchased at same time as Raven, i have to say Raven shades this. Slightly self indulgent at times, would have been a superb single cd. Great value and great album

A pleasant surprise. This double CD shows a maturity of musicians say their composition and musical creativity. No doubt a great job that takes us to sound engaging and stimulating.

I love Porcupine Tree, so i bought this album, to see if SW solo albums is for me. Its not easy music, its music you listen to, after smoking some good smoke, and listen deep.

I will state at the outset, that I am a Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson fanatic. The man is the most underrated musician this country has ever produced and he deserves to be considered alongside all of the 'legends' of British progressive/art rock music. However I always do my best to take each release stricly on it's merits and this album loses a star for me due to the lengthy Raider II track. It's just a bit too self-indulgent for me. I also have a bit of an aversion to the use of sax on rock records, but that's personal taste.

With SW spending the last couple of years re-mixing those King Crimson albums, he's clearly been heavily influenced by Mr Fripp and his alumni. I know that people will disagree with this but I tend to feel that at times, Mr Fripp's legendary status has far surpassed the quality of his output, so I hope that this is a passing flirtation and certainly doesn't make it's way too heavily on to the next PT album.

That being said, parts of this album are utterly sublime and when I hear the c~~p that gets nominated for things like the Mercury Music Prize, it staggers me that this album gets ignored like it's magnificent predecessor 'Insurgentes'. Fans of serious rock music need to treasure the likes of SW and hope that he continues to be motivated to keep us entertained for years to come.

Eventually one day,I might be able to stop looping the track "Postcard" 24 hours a day.
Until then, thank you Mr.Wilson!
