Kingsoby1's Porcupine Tree Rankings

Your definitive source for Porcupine Tree rankings... I've been a fan since 1999 when I first heard Signify. That makes me more elite than you.
1Porcupine Tree
In Absentia


This is a modern rock opus, plain and simple. Every track may not be perfect, but they are brilliantly sequenced. "Blackest Eyes" is a classic track, as is "Trains".
2Porcupine Tree
The Sky Moves Sideways


A masterclass in modern psychadelia. Yeah, I used the word masterclass, thanks Nick Greer.
3Porcupine Tree
Lightbulb Sun


"Russia on Ice" is an epic song... apart from that, this is an incredibly solid pop effort - much more cohesive than Stupid Dream's gay brit-pop.
4Porcupine Tree
Deadwing


With a lot to live up to coming after In Absentia, this one was a let down. But it's still better than most of the crap out there and would have made my end of year list for it's year of release. "Arriving Somewhere" is awesome, as are most of the tracks except that stupid radio-tailored one.
5Porcupine Tree
Fear of a Blank Planet


I'm including Nil Recurring with this as packaged in the vinyl version. Personally, I really feel that those B-Sides are much more interesting than the main record, but what do I know. The prog jamz here are far too drawn out and derivative. Still a good record, but continues a downward spiral off of In Absentia's success.
6Porcupine Tree
Signify


Pre pop era... Signify runs in the vein of similar Euro prog groups in the same era (namely Izz). "Sleep of No Dreaming" is a great come-down track, but some of this is too out there.
7Porcupine Tree
The Incident


About as good as FoaBP... hearkens back to Lightbulb Sun era PT with a dash of IA for good measure. Of course, mimicking yourself is never a good strategy in trying to earn critical acclaim.
8Porcupine Tree
Up The Downstair


Not many people here like this, but there are some great tracks... "Synesthesia" for example. But yeah, it's another good-in-places pre-pop era PT record.
9Porcupine Tree
Stupid Dream


This is where Steve Wilson decided to emulate lots of gay Brit-pop bands. As a result, he made a gay album.
10Porcupine Tree
Voyage 34: The Complete Trip


This is pretty stupid overall and nearly unlistenable. If Wilson were actually on LSD when recording this, it would be way better...
