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.
Definitely one of those albums with no weak tracks, so singling anything out for a mention is difficult, but I'm currently obsessing over the enchantingly melancholy "Heartattack in a Layby" and the tense "The Creator Has a Mastertape". Excellent lyrics abound, but a special mention must go to the words "Train set and match" kicking off the track "Trains" - just fine by me.
If you think calling PT 'Prog' is correct, bethink you, as this is modern, moody, ethereal, melodic, epic and loud! Highlights are Gravity Eyelids, which is one of the most awesome PT songs ever recorded. The Euro release sees the inclusion of previously MP3 only 'Chloroform' which is also a fabulous track. These two are more in keeping with previous modern PT stuff. Other tracks are much heavier in sound (Strip The Soul, least fav on album). But there is still the loud bits followed by really sweet melodies and kewl multitracked vocals, which keep you coming back time after time.
it's an album that seems accessible at first, but reveals more layers as time goes on, as with Lightbulb Sun previously.
PT specialise in moody semi-progressive music. If you like epic guitar stuff mixed with dreamy synth textures and some real strings then this is for you.
Compared to previous...
In Absentia is, to my mind, NOT quite as good as Lightbulb Sun (my overall fav), it's more RAWWWKK than previous CDs. It's not as accesible as Stupid Dream, but you get bored of SD after a while.
Diehards will get it anyway, but give it a go if you don't know them (and get LS too), you won't be sorry!

Brilliant album. Possibly the definitive album from this artist, if you're familiar with the PT output, this won't fail to disappoint, Steven Wilson really is an under rated gem,... Read morePublished 17 days ago by Neale R. G. Smith
