Staff review by

Deadwing is a shivering experience that will immediately combine all kind of emotions in both the atmosphere and in your mind; the minute you push play in your stereo you'll start feeling thrilled, excited, angry, stunned, besieged, and mostly any sensation the human can experience will appear instantly no doubt.

Rating: 10 My favourite album by them for definite. This album has everything-melody, dark atmosphere, and the album cover just gets your imagination going...

Rating: 8 After having the album just collecting dust for almost half a year (I'm not kidding) I checked it out yesterday and I've been listening to it during my trip from and to the Uni.
Very nice album indeed... Favorite tracks were definitely the first 3 + Arriving Somewhere But Not Here... But overall great album although I actually preffer the other album I own and heard (Fear Of A Blank Planet) more than this one.

My favourites are Shallow and Mellotron Scratch. Have not heard the album in over a couple of years and I still remember those two

"Deadwing" and "Arriving Somewhere But Not Here" are two of my favorites, but I think the one that is most memorable to me is also "Mellotron Scratch". Really awesome song. It feels like he captured the feeling of longing for days gone by--a sadness for friendships and loves lost--in sonic form.

Anyway, not my favorite Porcupine Tree album. Actually, it's my least favorite out of the albums from In Absentia and onward, but it's still a great album.
