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.

^No...Porcupine Tree is Progressive.

Pink Floyd isn't progressive, at least I haven't heard any prog in them. They're 100% classic (if psychodelic) rock.

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.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.


Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.

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".

Are there any other bands that sound like PT, because IMO Porcupine Tree are absolutely brilliant


Opeth come to mind


anyway, this PT are one of my favorite bands, the solo in "A smart kid" kills me.

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.
Quote by Mia (Pulp Fiction)
Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

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.
#99
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)

it does?
I've been listening to it for over a year and didn't know that.


Neither did I, however regarding Steve Wilsons genius, he co wrote Opeths "Death Whispered a Lullaby" which is a great song.
TEEP!!! Oiiiiiiieeeeeeeyyy!!!!!!

I am a long tiem fan of Porcupine Tree, and I was AMAZED that they are not that well known, I think Steven Wilson Is a genius and everything he touches turns to gold (i.e Opeth, Blackfield, and the new Orphaned Land album that he is producing..)

EDIT: Anyone ever heard of Blackfield?

Pink Floyd mixed it up with the best of progressive. They were friends with bands like Yes and Soft Machine and blended right into the Canterbury scene. Though saying that doesn’t mean much, Jimi Hendrix was nearly going to be the fourth member of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, but then again, Hendrix’s music wasn’t progressive, Pink Floyd’s is.

would you(or anyone else really) mind reccomending albums by both of those bands? any group mentioned in the same breath as PT is intriguing to me...

Yeah, I love 'em too. Saw them three times live here in Berlin and on my HD are about 150 songs from 12 LPs. Great stuff, Steve Wilson is a genius.

There is no dark side of the moon, as a matter of fact, it's all dark.

Pook, you're gonna need to hear the Lullaby cover. It's going to me a hard one for me to cover, my voices range doesn't, uhh, well go to high.

...and while they do have some stereotypical 12 minute prog epics I much prefer the shorter songs that I've heard.



12 minutes is nothing. Go for The Sky Moves Sideways...clocking in at a little over 40 minutes
