    Tried starting with In Absentia and really liked Trains (of course), but had a really hard time getting into the rest of the album. What should I try next? Think I liked Trains because it was a little bit darker, but without going fully into YOU WILL BE SAD NOW territory, if that makes sense...

    Way better than I expected it to be.

    The World Premiere of Porcupine Tree's 'Bonnie The Cat' || Roadrunner Records Interesting. Well done, I like it. Almost a little too much like Tool's videos, what with the stop-motion and all that, but...it works. :shrug:

    I posted this on ss.org, but like most "I'ma suggestin' a band no one's ever heard of" threads, it got pretty much ignored over there. I figured I'd put them up here as well. Let the thread die if you so please, I thought they deserved the chance, though: :shrug: strangeletter I stumbled...

    Alright, so just got back home from Toronto, and I must say, this was a top-5 (maybe even top-3) show for me. Incredible show, Porcupine Tree played for just under 2.5 hours, and at $35 a ticket, that's fucking awesome. The opening act was Bigelf. I really liked their set. Very much a 70s...

    Anyone going? I'm probably going and meeting up with a buddy who lives in TO now. Porcupine Tree tickets Sound Academy Toronto, ON, Directions, seating chart. Official Ticketmaster site.

    I can't find the info on their site at all; does anyone know who (if any) is opening for them on this leg of the tour?

    This is Trains performed by an a cappella group. It doesn't really compare to the original, but it's interesting.

    Yep, someone brought Bloodbath's "The Fathomless Mastery" and Porcupine Tree's "Lightbulb Sun" to demo some speakers. Gotta say, both sounded amazing cranking through even our most basic speakers, and it was really cool to hear loud death metal at work :lol: Now I'm checking out more Bloodbath...

    ...would you guys think less of me if I left my girl to chase after Steven Wilson?

    ...and 'Space Transmission' is just gloriously freaky! Seriously, if you have the album, dig it out and give it another listen.;)
