I’ve been listening to a lot of Porcupine Tree lately, and their last album, The Incident, is a huge homage to Pink Floyd. The song Time Flies, in particular, feels like it could be something from the Animals era. It’s truly great rock without simply mimicking Floyd.
Steven Wilson, the brains behind Porcupine Tree, has a new solo album out called The Raven That Refused to Sing that is getting rave reviews, which I think will be on my short list next time I’m looking at new music to buy. The title track is below, so enjoy! It’s very mellow.
