Did you find the one with Metropolis Pt.2 as a rough demo? It's amazing that it was actually written during the same time as FII

Digging: Panda Bear - Tomboy

Parallels has a point. Even the worst songs on FII have a lot more likability than most of the weaker songs from their post-6 Degrees albums.

This is better than I was expecting after the incredibly bland Dramatic Turd of Events.

This new one is certainly more interesting and better made than Dramatic Turn, which had a lot of flaws, but still had some great songs like breaking all illusions and bridges in the sky. Those kinds of songs aren't really on here for some reason...

"Burning my soul's lyrical genius"



... I don't even know how to respond to that.



But to be fair Bridges in the Sky's lyrics aren't much better. I try not to judge DT by their lyrics, it's not exactly a strength of theirs.

ugh, Burning My Soul.



If FII didn't have You Not Me, Burning My Soul and Take Away my Pain, it would be so much stronger. Just remove these and record a proper version of Raise the Knife to put on instead, and it would be stronger than Systematic, Oct, and Black Clouds.



The rest of the post 6 degrees albums have all been pretty solid on the whole IMO.



I would be happy for them to take an extra year for the following album to conjure up some better lyrics and metaphors. Something a bit more subtle and clever.



Remember Awake? The lyrics on that were outstanding...

Digging: Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase.

That was because of Kevin Moore

Falling into Infinity is already stronger than those albums you listed, in fact it's stronger than every post-Six Degress DT album.

An abum with a few weak tracks >> an album dominated by soulless wank and/or consistently bland songwriting (aka every DT album after Six Degrees).
