Evolution of a great band,
This review is from: Fear Of A Blank Planet (Audio CD)
Interesting mix of reviews before mine. Having owned all of PT's albums and seeing them several times in concert, I feel justified in saying that the band is definitely evolving. It would have been easy for Wilson to have produced another classic prog rock album but instead this album offers a departure in places from that and the emphasis is more on some pretty hard guitar work, akin almost to some thrash bands. Don't let that put you off though because some of the more mellow tracks really complement the harder tracks and does make the album more complete. It takes a few listens to appreciate the latest offering but it is certainly a worthwhile purchase and should be applauded for it's deviation from previous albums.
