5.0 out of 5 stars Steven Wilson what more do you need to know ?, 2 Jan 2009
This review is from: Insurgentes (Audio CD)
This is the commercial release of the deluxe album Steven Wilson released at then end of 2008.
The albums is a CD and DVDA package as has become the custom with his releases recently. The music is dark absorbing and at times intense. The music is played by a host of Steven Wilson regulars and as you come to expect from Any Steven Wilson project the playing is tight and punchy. My favourite songs on the album are
'Harmony Korine', 'Abandoner', the epic 'No Twilight Within the Courts of the Sun', and the title track ' Insurgentes'.
The DVD contains a 48/24 5.1 MLP (DVDA) track for playing on a DVDA player and DTS 5.1 track for ordinary DVD players as well as stereo tracks for those who don't line surround music.
The surround mix itself is pretty spectacular not active but discrete and involving, without distracting the listener.

I still don't know how Steven Wilson finds the time to make music as good as he does as part of his many groups and this album contains hints of Blackfield, Porcupine Tree, No-Man Bass Communion.
Great album, plenty of what Steven Wilson does best only this time in his own name.

Highly recommended
