Besides my slightly meterosexual comment before, (lol) PT is becoming one of my favorite bands. Lazarus is beautiful.

Porcupine Tree is genius, pure genius. In Absentia is a masterpiece in my eyes. I love every single PT track I have.

Porcupine Tree is all progressive goodness.

It's all about what side you're on really.

Pink Floyd made MOST of their music in the classic rock era, however, their sound is certainly prog.

Usually die hard Pink Floyd fans (like me) consider them prog but the casual listener or the skeptic tosses them in the classic rock bin.

Pink Floyd are definitely prog rock!
Currently, Lazarus is my favourite song. For the most part of the last 3 days I've just had that song on repeat.

Bleh, just like calling Zappa classic rock, calling Floyd classic rock is just BS.

all you guys who dig PT and any self-respecting psychonaut, get the album "Voyage 34: The Complete Trip" - this is from back in the day when PT was just Steven Wilson... it's a part of the collection which he labeled "The Delirium Years" - crazy ****

voyage 34 is ****ing hilarious. after the first track (phase 1) they explain how the album is about steven wilsons 34th lsd trip...very psychadelic. theyre new stuff is a lot different, but if youre into the Pink Floyd sound then check out "on the sunday of life" "up the downstair" "signify" and "the sky moves sideways".

A band kinda simular to Porcupine tree are Riverside .

And well also Anathema but only slightly. Anathema were Doom metal and are slowly edging towards prog rock/atmosheric rock.. still rather depressive lyrical themes but in a good way.. although their new songs are the first positive stuff they've ever written..

Sorry i'm an Anathema fanboy.

Hey all. New fan of PT here. Downloaded some of their songs last nite and must say..WOW! I can believe I haven't discovered this band earlier! I mean all the songs I have are awesome. Everytime I listened I think "THIS is how music should be made!". I've been searching for another band to fit my musical preferences and I think I fount it with Porcupine Tree. It's hard, its complex, great vocals...at first glance, FLAWLESS.

Fav Songs: Shallow, Lazarus, Halo, Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, Blackest Eyes, Trains, Sound of Muzak, Wedding Nails, Prodigal.

Every time I hear 'strip the soul' (just came on again) it drives me mad, who stole that intro bassline?
It wasn't a complete rip-off, but there is a song very, very similar.

EDIT: Ah, Velvet Revolver.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

PT own my soul

Gravity Eyelids is probably my favourite song, with Even Less, Russia on Ice, and Trains following close behind.

amazing band, Absolutely love "Arriving Somewhere But Not Here" and "lazarus". Very Melodic

I forgot to add that Steven Wilson is a genious, especially his side project Blackfield and his producing skills(Opeth's Deliverance and Damnation for example)
