    Huh, interesting.  And cool.  And, "Two pieces of music, "Mo and Herb's vacation", and "The Black Page" were considered exceptionally difficult. Only three drummers throughout Zappa's career were able to play them successfully: Wackerman, Terry Bozzio, and Vinnie Colaiuta."
     
    Time to listen!

    Just got back from the performance/signing at Amoeba Records.  Nice talking to the guys in the band and was able to get all their signatures on the caricature page of the album!  They played an extended version of Radioactive Toy so there will be a new encore song tomorrow night.  Really looking forward to the show.

    A little late, but this album is amazing, thanks for the recommendation, before this thread I never listened to Steven Wilson (or heard about much) [​IMG], I think I've missed out a lot, now I listen to the whole album every chance I get. 
     
    Today I was looking around for more of his music and ordered Insurgentes from Amazon, any other recommendation? something from Porcupine Tree maybe?

    I recommend the entire Porcupine Tree catalog!
     
    But if you like Steven's latest album, I would start the Porcupine Tree exploration with their later albums, say, starting with In Absentia or later.
     
  8. Eee Pee
    Indeed, all of Porcupine Tree!

    I always ask around, have you ever heard of PT? No one has and yet it's so good.

    Thanks, it's good to know that all their albums are worth recommending. I'll start from the first one after I get Insurgentes.

    Actually I strongly recommend starting your Porcupine Tree excursion with Signify. The first few PT albums from the "space rock" era are much more of an acquired taste. They have their moments, but nowhere near as strong as the records from Signify onward, IMHO.

    I still absolutely LOVE "Raven". Listening right now to the Deluxe Edition

    Signify is a good starting point too.   I concur, their early albums are a bit too trippy to recommend without reservations.  I like them all, but it's best to start in the middle in this case.

    That's the recommendation I received for Porcupine Tree starting to be more prog rock and enjoyed the album.

    I just discovered another really good Prog rock band called Cosmograf.  The Man Left in Space is a fantasic album and I highly recommend it for PT fans.  Another good way to get a flavor for PT is listen to their live albums which often have highlights from several of their albums.  Anesthetize and Arriving Somewhere are really good and capture alot of their music from the late 90's and onward.

    And don't forget the Nearfest 2001 ROIO, that's amazing!  That's what really got me hooked on Porcupine Tree!  I first hear In Absentia on Radio Paradise, then grabbed the Nearfest ROIO and i've been a rabid fan ever since.
