    Their new Cd "Deadwing " is brilliant...prog with great guitar riffage.

    I have In Absentia. Doesn't it have one of the best album covers you've ever seen?

    :bump:

    I am a prog fan. I love this band. In Absentia and Deadwing are excellent albums. I haven't listened to all of their newest release, Fear of a Blank Planet, but the couple songs I have heard are fantastic as well.

    They have a strong influence from Tangerine Dream and Pink Floyd, which is probably why they have such a psychedelic and electronic mix of sounds.

    Steven Wilson, the founder of Porcupine Tree, is also a gifted producer. He is the producer of Opeth.

    If you really want to hear some strange and ambient works from Wilson, check out No man or Incredible Expanding Mindf***. These two projects explore alot of ambient, psychedelic, and experimental stuff.


    Edit: Porcupine Tree isn't a new rock band. They have been around since 1987.

    I have all of PT's albums, so I am a big fan of theirs, and I have been a Prog/Rock fan from the early 70's so that's not a big surprise.

    I adore Porcupine Tree. I find myself listening to them all the time.

    When it comes to PT's "two sounds" I can't really pick a favorite. I love the psychedelic jams of the earlier stuff, but I also love the metal inspired sound that Steven Wilson seems to favor these days.

    Honestly, one of the more perfect bands out there. I haven't really heard anything I haven't liked. Some of it I have to be in the right mood for, but I'll listen to most of it any time, any where.

    My favorite is definitely "Arriving Somewhere But Not Here" from the Deadwing-album. Great song that has everything! Man o man. It's a shame it's only 12 minutes haha
