this is where RP needs a pause button
A couple of great Pink Floyd songs followed by one of my favorite by Massive Attack followed by one of my favorite PT.

Come on man, too much winning, and I need to make a phone call. 
Wilson recently commented that he has many young fans in South America and India but that his fans in North America tend to be older.

Thoughts?

Good to hear. Hope to see Steven Wilson at the Fillmore in San Francisco in May. Looking forward to it.

It is my favourite cut off what I believe could be Porcupine Tree's best album.   It is one of my favourite war/anti-war popular songs. 

Mind you, from Signify to The Incident, all the PT albums were terrific.
 I like this one.  And what do you think?

Took me a while to get into some songs and a couple of the lyrics strike me as lame (not fond of excessive use of clichés) but frankly, once again, Steven Wilson knocked it right out of the park as he has consistently done since the Raven album.

I first heard PT with Prodigal from this album.  Love these guys, especially the earlier stuff. Ordered Wilson's new album.

dripping with content, PT creates energy...
My son once asked me to pick a song...any song, to do a sound check on a new audiophile stereo system.  I picked this one...We thoroughly enjoyed the 'test'.
Bump

33.3 would actually be too slow. {#Wink}
 
. . . and 3(.3) would definitely be too slow, but I'm sure it would sound interesting . . .
I just swooned a lil bit from that Massive Attack "Angel" segue to this. Love it.

Hmm, a vinyl record revolves at 33.3 rpm.
Just a coincidence, or . . . ?

Woke up and had my morning coffee to PT and now the Sun is setting and I'm, er, WE are enjoying PT again. Thanks Bill for rounding out the day.

Such a thrill, every single time.
