The album is paced well, opening with `Luminol' (already known to fans from the Get All You Deserve Live album also available on Amazon), and for my mind the weakest of the tracks setting the tone from the album. Sweeping passages, chunky bass, flute, mellotron, and fire cracker drumming the works packed into the 12 minutes of song. The albums other 5 tracks pack a punch are dynamic while the closer the eponymous track the Raven closes the album gently and wanting more. I particularly like `The Watchmaker' and `the Holy drinker'.
For those buying the Blu ray version you also will not be disappointed Progs premier 5.1 fettler has again hit the mark, Steven definitely gets 5.1 and knows how to produce a good mix. The extras especially on the blu ray make that the go to package unless you can get hold of the limited and completely sold deluxe all disc book/box.
Buy with the confidence that Steven Wilson has pulled off another superb album, Porcupine Tree may be on hiatus, this more than makes up.
I do not use the term lightly, but I think that this is Mr Wilson's opus. This has got to be one of his best pieces of music, including Porcupine tree etc. the album definitely has it's roots in the past, with the obvious references to King Crimson, Tull etc, but for me that 's where it ends. The album has everything from blistering guitars to atmospheric soundscapes. And I think that this is one of the reasons why the album is so good. Steven Wilson treats music as a master craftsman, orchestrating each track with precision ., gently teasing the best from each individual musician This man genuinely cares about how the product should sound, and goodness me, does he get everything right on this offering. Which leads me on to the blu ray edition. Does it add anything to the original album? Or is it just another fad like coloured vinyl /picture discs were in the seventies and eighties. For me, this actually enhances the album, true it's not loaded with interesting pictures to visually entertain as well as edify the listening pleasure,. This is a good thing, it helps you focus on the music- as it should be. The production of it is excellent. This is my first musical blu ray, each note iand scratch of guitar string is clearly audible,. Am I a convert to blu ray music - hell yes!
Seriously though, I don't know how he does it. This is a fantastic mix of beautiful, haunting melody and frighteningly difficult discord, with all points between pretty much covered.
As always, the sound is immaculate too.
I got my copy signed in Love Music in Glasgow on the day of his gig at ABC. That was brilliant too!!
So a great purchase. Get it, you won't regret it.
As a BluRay audio disc the sound is spectacular with a great balance of drums, bass and guitar including keyboards and horns mixed in all over the mix. It's something you need to hear at a decent volume.
The first time I played this at a low volume I did not quite get into it. The next time with all the speakers pumping I was able to enjoy the amazing mix of sound and some great songs that Steven has given us again. There is a lot of bonus versions of the same songs in demo format or instrumental versions. As of yet I have not seen any music videos which is disappointing.
I am looking forward to the next project SW intends to do.
