For me a new find..................,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Absentia [European Edition] (Audio CD)
For me a new find . I am at heart a Floyd fan, but started about 9 months ago looking for other prog rock bands whilst off long term sick. I was amazed at how many bands still go under the genre of prog. Allowing for the fact that this is not what I personaly would call prog, having bought it I was blown away. Powerfull, melodic, great musicianship from all members of the band members and terrific vocals to boot.I have also rercently bought music by, Mostly Autumn, RPWL, Riverside, I.Q, Transatlantic, Spocks Bears, Dream Theatre, Kaipa, Pendragon,Magellan, Vanden Plas, amd Manning.
Older prog I was listening to included, Rush, Wishbone Ash, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Alan Parsons, Pink Floyd to name a few.
All recently purchased music have been good for expanding the old buggers previously narrow field of Prog, but finally I must say that this has been on the player most days so far.It is a little heavy for some maybe in parts, but I love it. 11/10.

Thank you for this review!
I've been toying with buying some Porcupine Tree albums, but didn't know how they relate to the rest of my musical taste.
I don't like to expand too far from my Dream Theater, Spock's Bear, Transatlantic, Yes.. roots.
Your mention of all the other bands you have gotten into has confirmed that this may be my kind of music.
Emmensely helpful, thank you!
