So, because of the Wilson+Akerfeldt-thread, I came across the fact that Wilsons new solo record is due this week, and I took a listen:

And I immediately ordered that record. If the rest of it is somewhere near that (edited!) song, this one has good chances to be the prog record of the year. And yes, I am aware of the new Opeth and the new Mastodon.
The album is awesome. I preordered the vinyl and got it yesterday. I'm very pleased with it.
