"Yeah, albums like 'Trespass' came to mind a few times while I heard this."

Yeah exactly. I really enjoy the relatively "grounded" take on prog of early Genesis.

"I'm not sure why PT was never really appealing to me"

Actually the dead sister of the character he invented for that story. Still a touching story.

This album isn't as bad as I thought. It's sort of growing on me. Holy Drinker brings the whole thing down a lot though.

^That's close to mine but Drive Home would be higher I think maybe 4th shift the other two down

Pin Drop is so fucking good, starts out a bit awkward but the song just takes off after


Well done Patrick Star

I'm probably the biggest Steven Wilson fan in the universe, but I'm just really getting sick of the direction he's taking with his solo albums. I really loved GFD, but this 70s prog revival is getting old really fast. He NEEDS to change it up on the next album.
