I feel no pain
'Cos I'm an island
I will remain
In the deafness of your silence

I love you sometimes
Always Never
He said you're here
Here with me now

I feel no gain
When you're around me
I'll try again
In the darkness you astound me

I love you sometimes
Always Never
He said you're here
Here with me now

I love you sometimes
Always Never
He said you're here
Here with me now

It's growing cold
I'm growing old
Is this the only way to see the fire?
It's raining

I just PSD'd to this track. I think I have not heard it before.

Too much PT is never enough.

Great close-out guitar solo on this one. Steven is boss.

hippiechick, no excuse.

This is the first time I've rated something a 1, and the first time I've seen the tag RP provides with that rating: Sucko-Barfo. I can't think of a better description of this drivel.
 

Well you are in the minority, fine use mute, my volume is maxed!

Being in the Boston area on extended business, and having a free weekend, I decided I should visit Cape Cod. Since I had a fair amount of time in the car, I listened to "In Absentia" from start to finish. I reminded me of the benefits of hearing an entire album, especially from a group as talented as PT. The songs, as well as their order, were selected to create a whole that is greater than the sum of it's parts.

Many of the "one-off" downloads I purchase may be robbing me of richer experiences to be found in albums. I guess that is a, "note to self".

  Great post. Maybe you should check out Deadwing too; that PT album is one of the best-arranged albums I ever heard. Of course there is The Incident song cycle as well; that one is less accessible but absolutely brilliant sonically and conceptually.

Sounds like a Robert Fripp influence.

The guitar and mix made me check out who it was. I have just begun to dig into PT and this is a gem from their earlier releases from where I am. Nice, very nice.
The guitar made me stick... Very nice overdrive sound...

Funny about Elvis Costello.  I recognize the talent and original song writing but the music irritates me profoundly.

I was introduced to Talking Heads in Botswana close to the end of almost 2 years going overland from Morocco to the apartheid Republic of South Africa.  After about 4 years of being out of the western pop music loop.  Innovative. Pleasant associations.  But, yeah, Talking Heads doesn't do it for me either.



 

I am your mirror image.  EC and TH are among my faves of all time. EC in my top 3.  And PT - my wife loves them and I've gone to see them with her - I recognize the talent and innovation - but I've never really been a big fan of a lot of the "progressive" bands that seem to be there influences, and I just don't dig them much. 

But RP is a big tent thank goodness.
take leftover Rush, mix in re-fried beans and bake!

This deserves repeating. Some of these musicians are cleaver and creative folks, least we wouldn't listen to them.

Hey Scott!  You can always tune into your local NPR station.  ;-)

 

You know, when it comes push to shove, I'm pretty socially conservative.  I hate gratuitously torturing other people, even if they are not MY people.  But when it comes to music, in your case, I'll make an exception.

Generally an O.K song, but WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY too long.

Porcupine Tree is one of my favorites. I first heard them on Radio Paradise. I bought Stars Die, which I figured was a good place to start, being a selection of their songs from the 90s; In Absentia and Fear of a Dark Planet are on their way.

I like or love almost everything I hear on this station. I have problems with Elvis Costello and Talking Heads, but I understand that a lot of folks like them, so I try not to complain (I guess I just slipped a little here).

For me, Radiohead and Cake are tied at number one, with Belle and Sebastien runner up.

I usually go for the low-tech solution of just pulling the headphones down around my neck.  I just wish the songs were shorter.  :)  Figures that I band I don't like goes in for the long songs....

I like the RP community because every song, every band seems to have its admirers and critics.  Keeps it interesting.

Prog is long-form music and you have to be in it for the full ride. Kinda like movies: some people need an explosion or nudity every five minutes to keep their attention. Fine with me, I like those occasionally myself. But to sit through the director's cut of Dr Zhivago or Lawrence of Arabia requires that extra bit of dedication or some little clue will escape you that resolves a plot device or a chord progression later on.

Then there is music I can listen to while coding (things like Shahin & Sepehr are perfect for this) or concentrating on something OTHER than the music... I guess this list can go on and on (music to be angry to, etc etc). Progressive (and most 'chops' based music) falls into a category where, to appreciate it, I usually need to be concentrating ON the music. This is more easily done in 5 to 20 minute spurts truth be told, and there you have my theory. This is where the guy responds with a "no, its just dull" :)

Bumped to a 7 from 5 - after getting the RP diet everyday I realize more so now that I like the elements of PT more and more - What is the band's status now? Is Niel Pert from Rush still in the mix?

Personal note/opinion: I liked my first listen of this band enough to buy a cd (Deadwing).

Because the visuals are synched to the music, Gavin Harrison has to play all those weird time signatures to a click track. Incredible. Wait till they get enough $$$ together for top of the line sound and lights. They will be massive.
eskles, I'm going to guess that you should give the CD Stupid Dream a few spins. You might like it better. BTW, how do you get "bored"?

I've always loved the P-Trees. Wish they toured the USA more often. Viva Steven W!

Loving the tree.
Me? I have no issues with other people's taste in music. It's lack of taste that riles me.
Deadwing, Discussing music is little like discussing tastes in food. It is generally perceived to be extremely poor manners to express an emotional dislike or disgust with food that other people enjoy. Here's a travel tip for folks. If you really want to come across as an uncultured boor (and play to a bunch of negative stereotypes), play fussy with food hospitality in foreign countries.
Another cool song from PT. Thanks! I'm getting it, Bill. Keep up the good work.

For the very small percentage of RP listeners that don't like these guys... Hey, we will never all like the same music. Music is a completely personal thing. Speaking for myself if I hear a song I don't like I don't go on that songs thread and talk shite to the people that do enjoy it. I have more respect for other peoples opinions and feelings than that. PT is getting a lot of play here because they are getting a lot of positive feedback and requests. 6 guys pissing and moaning will never outweigh 500 positive responses. Deal. :yes:
My favorite band since Signify in 1996 :music: I'm really happy RP is getting their music out to so many more people who would never have heard them otherwise. If you like what you hear try their live concert DVD Arriving Somewhere.... or their 5.1 surround sound album mixes. They won the Surround Sound Record of the Year in 2004 AND 2005 for In Absentia and Deadwing. Better yet they are going to be touring the US again in October- go to one of their shows if you can manage it. They are amazing live. :drummer: Gavin, Steven, Colin, and Richard!!! :cheers: and Wes too! :wink: I'll be at the Cincinnati show with 8 friends :hearteyes:
It kind of boggles the mind just why such awsome talent goes unrecognized. If it weren't for this radio station who would know what is really out there.

Not radio friendly and too progressive...that was the excuse a certain station manager in San Diego gave me for not playing them... I LIKE IT!! :clap: S~
why this band isn't bigger....? very very coool riffs....Pork th eTree
You could be right Nabla. A 'social contract' of sorts. Bill plays lots of Porcupine Tree, and many of us rave on, click through, buy RP stuff, send in cheques, etc. It probably doesn't hurt that those of us who rave on like teeny bopper lunatics also might know something about music, play or have played instruments, understand creative process, etc.
It seems to me that RP has a contract with PT...? They appear very often here. However, they are great! :bounce: :yes: :music:

I had the same questions when I first got into PT. I like "In Absentia" and "Stupid Dream" a lot. "Deadwing is also good, but "harder" than previous albums. I also really like the spacey, Pink Floyd-ish sounds on this album. I guess it depends on what part of PT you like as to which albums would be YOUR favorites. Many people, including myself, have had the same question you did. Check out this forum I started: (click here)

Excellent choice DJ. Went out and bought this double CD at HMV because of RP. If that's not radio power for music, I don't know what is!
Discovered these guys through RP-thank you :notworthy: I am liking them more and more...each time I hear one of their songs played. Play Stars Die! (Gotta get speakers for my machine at work!)
Suddenly got interesting. Nice surprise.
A third PT tune I've heard on RP. This one will take a bit more listening to, but I will :D

Feel free to leave at any time and not return. You've yet to make an insightful comment anyway, so why start now? Thanks, Bill, for playing PT...I have this station to thank for turning me on to them (and MMJ, who I also did not know). Excellent tune.

Perhaps you're listening to the wrong station, then.... :stupid:

They must have wandered into this steam by accident, probably looking for the station down the street...

In the middle of the song he went into musical scales mode... must not have knowed they were taping... cue the emotive atmospheric whispering... jes' kiddin', pretty good in moderation...

Simply an amazing band.
Steven Wilson is amazing. The lead track on this album is very cool as well. Love that main guitar riff. Awesome stuff.
Love the P-Tree.
