On this Porcupine Tree record, The Incident, there is a huge contrast in sound to that of the band's back catalog. It focuses much less on the rock, and much more on cheesy pop sensibilities. Not that Steven Wilson hasn't pulled from the pop vein before; the most notable example being Stupid Dream. But this time, it's all "Kneel and Disconnect".

Rating: 9 This 55-minute song cycle reminds me of everything through these years. Complex and heavy. Deep and simple.

Rating: 7 All the elements seem to be there, but somehow it fails to excite as much as its predecessors...

Rating: 8 Coming off of the awe-inspiring Fear of a Blank Planet and Nil Recurring it's hard not to measure PT's latest up to them. While it's PT as usual showing their elegance and simplicity in song structure and melody, its still just average PT. And even that is well above average for progressive rock.

Rating: 9 This is one of their best albums, really love it. Black Dahlia song kills me to be honest its fucking awesome.

  Pretty awesome album, but for some reason its just not as memorable as, say, in absentia.

  Drawing the Line sounds like a great song.

If you can't tell I don't suppose I was doing a good job of it.

  This reminds me A LOT of Steven Wilson's solo project...specially Insurgentes...but a bit heavier on some parts!

Rating: 7 This is actually the first PT album that I ever bought (the first one I heard of was Deadwing though). It's not quite my favorite PT album, but I still love it, it's great stuff. "I Drive The Hearse" is a haunting song, the flute and acoustic guitars are gorgeous.
