I love the disturbing atmosphere this album evokes.

Sometimes I feel that Steven Wilson isn't capable of releasing an album that is less than great. This one is no exception.
Despite the songs being written and recorded in the different parts of the world "Insurgentes" doesn't sound like a collection of various musical pieces but rather a solid yet diverse record.
