I'd really love to learn how to quote things properly.
On topic though, so excited for this.
sounds FUCKING EPIC. I will HAVE to check this out when it's released or ahem... leaked.
Very excited for this, sounds amazing.
I am incredibly excited for this release. On the whole though, the track names don't seem like typical track names from Porcupine Tree...but I'm pretty drunk so maybe it's me.
noice, this should be pretty tasty
looking forward to this
i'm getting the feeling that this won't top their last 2
im rly getting the feelign it might
Will undoubtedly be a crusher
E P I C . P R O G . M U S I C .
Awesome. I've been really getting into these guys lately. This should be good.
looking forward to this. the fact it's a double disc worries me, though. most bands struggle to keep the quality up with double-discs, but i have faith.
crazy how this band can put out quality disc after quality disc almost every 2 years
My dick is so hard right now. Album has potential for record of the year for sure.
Can't wait for this
it was definitely time for a Porcupine Tree double album ;)
really looking forward to this.
i just came
I'm looking forward to this as well, but I think it is kind of ridiculous how they are making a 55 minute song. I just don't understand why bands would want to make something so long, and would they be able to play it live? I'm sure it will still be great though.
As hilariously pretentious as this is, I'm still pretty stoked for it.
hugely epic if they can pull this off
Digging: The Decemberists - What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World
they haven't disappointed me yet
The last 55 minute song I heard was Dvorak's Ninth. This should be interesting
this band is a band
will be incredibly boring
will be incredibly over-praised
gonna be soooooo goooood.
Digging: Black Sheep Wall - I'm Going to Kill Myself
Im gonna have to agree with wellfell. I dont have that good of a feeling about this at all.
No, it will rule.
Why? Ever since Gavin Harrison has been in the band the music has been simply amazing.
They made a legit 17minute song, why can't they make a legitimate 55 minute song?
Besides, it'll probably have different movements in between so it won't just feel like one jumbled mess.
I say it's going to kick ass and going to get all the praise it deserves.
There is a huge difference between a 17 minute song and a 55 minute song. And even if it does have movements, It doesnt matter. They could at least break up the song into the movements for a series of shorter songs, but something tells me its gonna be a few chips of gold in a huge pile of filler. But I'm not saying that the album will definitely suck. I could be completely wrong and it will blow every 2009 album out of the water.

sounds a lot like porcupine tree's entire career amirite?
not really, no
The only PT albums I have heard are Deadwing and FOABP (which are both great) so it wouldnt be right to judge their whole career.
ill have to look into this.
(both the album and the band in general)
i'm betting the 55 minute song will be split into different tracks because it's fucked up otherwise, i expect something similar to 6doit or even the first disc to be some sort of foabp and the second to be a nil recurring thing except they're not outtakes
I was going to bring up 6DOIT
didn't they say somewhere that among other things they also simply wanted to piss off the ipod generation by recording such a long track? not sure though.
however, as Porcupine Tree albums are usually better when listened to in one go it won't bother me anyway.
anyway, now I've brough up ipods I might just post this:
He aims like a douchebag...
You'd think one could think of a better idea to promote an album than destroying a product that your album is going to end up on anyway.
that helps make it all the more facetious
If this is anything as good ass last album, Ill cream.
haven't listened to these guys in a long time.
maybe I'll give fear of a blank planet or deadwing a spin soon.
55-minute song will:
not sound the same throughout
not have been produeced in the same session
be lyrically brilliant
bonnie the cat
the title track will be good, the question is the rest of it.
PT wouldn't let something as big as a 55-minute song slip. I have a feeling it'll challenge for their best, and if the rest is anything near as good as their recent stuff, we have one hell of an album on our hands...
What's so weird about a 55 minute song? Light of Day, Day of Darkness was absolutely amazing and Green Carnation had never had a song over 60 minutes before that one came out.
I hope this isn't going to be as lame as most of what they release.
I hope it's as awesome as In Absentia.
They've basically topped every previous album with every new album so far, so I wonder if they can keep it up...
awwwww shit yea!
Apparently this is about SW being stuck on the highway in a traffic jam driving past a car accident and it said POLICE - INCIDENT. Then he thought "what a cold way to describe something as tragic as a car accident" and went from there.
well it's something
