|Porcupine Tree Ranked|
Porcupine Tree's albums in order of greatness
An incredible record, manages to be dark and almost metallic at times without losing the progressive nature that the band has always had.
Best Track: Gravity Eyelids
Some of PT's best individual songs here, slightly more poppy than other albums but great nonetheless.
Best Track: Even Less
Fear of a Blank Planet
The concept album with the sometimes clunky and cheesy lyrics comes very near to being a classic.
Best Track: Anesthetize
The Sky Moves Sideways
A wonderful slice of good, old-fashioned, prog. This is where the comparisons between PT and Pink Floyd really started...and it's not hard to see why.
Best Track: The Sky Moves Sideways (Phase One)
A pretty good album for the most part, similar in style to Stupid Dream, but one or two of the tracks are a little disappointing.
Best Track: Russia On Ice
This album doesn't quite work for me I'm afraid. I feel it tries to be a bit too 'metallic' at times and the lyrics are quite poor too on occasion.
Best Track: Arriving Somewhere But Not Here
A more ambient and dance influenced release for PT; it's very good but I personally feel it is too much like a collection of tracks and it doesn't flow that well.
Best Track: Idiot Prayer
Up The Downstair
The album that hinted at the greatness PT would later achieve but didn't quite realise it.
Best Track: Burning Sky

On The Sunday of Life...
PT are one of those bands that sadly released a debut album that's miles worse than anything they've done since (like Radiohead with Pablo Honey, for example).
Best Track: Radioactive Toy
|what about voyage 34|
|Very decent list, could agree with most|
I like a lot of their EPs also though
|cool list, 3 is my favorite. also the only three albums I don't have yet are the last three ones on the list ^^|
however, let us not forget that No-Man and I.E.M. have albums that are at least as good as most of the PT stuff. not that much a fan of Blackfield (anymore) though.
|Deadwing is way too low for me. I would have that first and then In Absentia.|
|3,6,1,2,4,5,7,8,9 for me, roughly. |
|Follow the list, my friend, but listen to Deadwing |
|Now the sound of music|

|Sullen and bored the kids stay |
And in this way they wish away each day…
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way wish away each day
|Wow 6 should be higher.|
I'd probably go 2,1,6,3 then rest.
|Yeah, six should definitely be higher.|
|Not sure where The Incident falls yet...I don't think it surpasses FOABP...but its pretty damn great....|
|It's funny how PT's albums roughly get better in chronological order for me.|
|i like 1 and 3 haven't heard the rest.|
|Right, so I've got '...Blank Planet' and 'In Absentia', and I think I enjoy 'In Absentia' a bit more. I'm going to get 'The Incident' when it comes out, but if I were to go into the back catalogue, what might I get next...'Deadwing', 'Lightbulb Sun' or 'Stupid Dream'?|
