    What a lovely song. Iíve yet to see Townsend live and I must fix that one of these days.

    I love prog but donít rarely do any deep dives into it, as sometimes itís just too darn boring for my ears. But thereís one artist that I can turn to all the time and always have a good time, and thatís Steven Wilson.



    Iíve been a fan of his since the heady days of Porcupine Treeís 2nd-last album, Fear Of A Blank Planet (and if you can find the 5.1 mix of it, jump on it because itís awesome). I even saw them live when they toured on that album. They played it start-to-finish during the first half of the gig, and in their 2nd set they played material from PTís extensive back catalogue. But most of it went over my head, because I wasnít that familiar with the band at the time. What a waste!

    But yeah, Steven Wilson. Awesome. Heís such a music nerd, that the sound of most of his work sounds far better than the output that has been through the hands of dedicated producers and mixers. Anyone who can make a jazz flute work in the context of a live prog rock performance derserves a big thumbs-up in my opinion.

    I found Steve Wilson via Opeth's Damnation album ... and I think he produced Blackwater Park as well?

    Anyway, yeah, Fear of a Blank Planet is flawless.

    And he's not half bad!

    My brother-in-law gave me a copy of Fear of a Blank Planet shortly after it came out, and it instantly was one of my favorite albums. I since then dove more into PT's discography, grabbing the albums from Absentia on. Then I made a Porcupine Tree channel on Pandora. It' pretty much the only thing I listen to.

    Also, I'm going to see Coheed & Cambria tomorrow night. They've started releasing some new material that gets back into their Amory Wars prog-concept album stuff. Looking forward to hearing it live.
