5.0 out of 5 stars In Absentia, 19 July 2007
This review is from: In Absentia [European Edition] (Audio CD)
Porcupine Tree are fast becoming well known prog rock musicians renowned for experimentation. If they were Pink Floyd clones in the beginning then they certainly aren't now. In Absentia rings with the now well established Porcupine Tree sound. Right from the beginning thrash riff of "Blackest Eyes" to the final piano notes of "Collapse The Light..." the listener (us lucky, lucky people) is taken on a musical journey of epic proportions. The album is not happy, make no mistake about it, but at the same time it does not have the annoying air of a dog that has been kicked. There is also a huge variety of music on this album, from the acoustic "Trains," the thrash "Blackest Eyes," and the spaced out "Gravity Eyelids." I am here reviewing this album in 2005 and another Porcupine Tree album, by the name of "Fear Of A Blank Planet." This, like "In Absentia," is an anguish drenched masterpiece and is definitely worth investigating if you like "In Absentia." I am sooooo pleased that Porcupine Tree are bearing a standard of avant garde, experimental music that outshines the rubbish on the charts and radio these days, without ripping off and recycling older prog artists (a la Dream Theater). In short, buy buy buy.
