i recently found out about PT from one of the cd reviews on this site and decided to check them out. They are probably my favorite modern band right now. The music is so amazing. Its the kind of music i would want to play.

Porcupine Tree is very good and underrated. They remind me a little bit of pink floyd just because they have some kinda trippy music, yet floyd is stillbetter.

Porcupine Tree is all progressive goodness.



Are you ******ed? Pink Floyd could not get more progressive. Listen to a song like echoes and tell me they arent prog.

If you can deal with some death metal vocals, check out Opeth. Steve Wilson produced a few of their albums, and they have a really great metal/prog/acoustic sound. Their singber is a very good clean singer as well, and if the growls turn you off they did make an all clean album called Damnation.

i would say floyd are prog but not like prog metal or rock like dream theater. but ya can't say theyr'e not progressive. they sorta sound like a classic rock/jazz guitar band.

I heard Deadwing and Lightbulb Sun for the first time the other day, to add to my collection of Stupid Dream and In Abstentia....the more I hear from this band the more they blow me away, such an amazing band. Looking at getting Signify next...

I love Porcupine Tree. I borrowed In Absentia from my friend and ripped it to my computer. Kinda didn't like it at first, but it's much deeper than it immediately lets on. Great stuff.

^ Yeah, I only have that album. Shallow is a great song, so is Deadwing and So Called Friend... theyre all great! I love the dreamy feel to some of their songs. VERY underrated IMO and need to be more heard of.

Is In Absentia good? I only have Trains and that is an amazing song, I was thinking about getting the album.

^ 'In Absentia' is a lot better than 'Deadwing', so as you like 'Deadwing' I highly suggest you look into some of the older stuff.

Downloaded a live acoustic show of Steven Wilson the other day out of curiousity of what the PT stuff would sound like played solo, and it's pretty damn sweet. Got it off dimeadozen if anyone else is interested in it.

In Absentia is fantastic

I used think it was far superior to Deadwing, but Deadwing has really grown on me.

In Absentia is still better though - definately get it.

They're re-releasing Stupid Dream and some other records in the next month or so, should be great

Yeah, I've only got into them recently and haven't been able to find many old albums at decent prices.

Check their website, I think it's being released with a bonus DVD and some other stuff.

The reissue of Porcupine Tree's 1999 album Stupid Dream will be available in early 2006 in the form of a 2 disc set containing a remixed and remastered stereo CD, and a 5.1 surround sound DVDA (with DTS encoded version which will play on any DVD player equipped with a surround sound / home cinema speaker set up). The 5.1 disc also contains surround sound mixes of "Ambulance Chasing" and the full length version of "Even Less", the video to "Piano Lessons", and a photo gallery. Lasse Hoile has also created completely new images for the reissue, since the band were never happy with the original cover design.

This 2 disc edition will only be available to buy direct from the Pocupine Tree Store. A standard CD edition will get a wider release at a later date, as well as a 2LP vinyl version on US label Gates of Dawn.

A reissue of Lightbulb Sun in 5.1 and stereo is also planned.

^ Yeah, I took a look after I saw your comment, it's good though for them, they should be the ones making the money out of their CDs not these shops that you see trying to sell them on amazon for $100. It's well worth picking up. Might have to pick up a couple more of the older ones at some point as well, so thanks for pointing that out.
