4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting!, 27 Feb. 2013
This review is from: The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories) (Audio CD)
Being of an age to have experienced 1970's 'Prog Rock' then it has to be said that Steven Wilson makes a damn good fist of reinventing the sound in the 21st century. Listen carefully and you can hear ELP, Genesis, Yes and King Crimson in there. The doomy keyboards and synths, the jazzy drums and sax...the wailing guitar solos...the reverb...the Tolkeinesque lyrics.
It's like discovering an unreleased 1972 album from a band who passed you by at the time....groovy !

If you knew your Tolkien then you would know that Sauron was a high level minion of Morgoth/Melkor so hardly as you describe! And he was defeated at one stage by a dog! I thoroughly recommend the Silmarillion...

FYI, I was at the Toronto show last night, and SW mentioned your review. He said: "I sing about women who mess me up, trains, and serial killers. Where are the hobbits or elves or wizards in any of that?" So during one of the quiet bits of Raider 2, someone yelled out "Hobbits!", to general amusement.

He mentioned this at the Los Angeles show...had a good laugh! Sorry that it's at your expense dude but still. Made for good crowd banter :)

This is hilarious! I'm sorry I didn't really go for it and bring Rick Wakeman, roller skating wizards, flying pixies and fire breathing dragons into the review!
