Steven Wilson - Grace for drowning

Has anyone else purchased this? I know there are a few porcupine tree fans here...
I must say I am very happy that I purchased the vinyl version, the sounds are excellent and with the lights dimmed it is definitely entrancing. If only I had someone to turn the records.

GRACE FOR DROWNING, particularly in surround, is meant to be taken in one sitting. It is not for bite sized chunks. I find it took five run-throughs for it to coalesce as a whole piece. Steven does nothing without full consideration. I think a good description would be ' ebb and flow'.
I can recommend the album LIGHTBULB SUN, as a particular sonic joy for any newcomers to the wonderful world of Porcupine Tree. But really, they have not done a duff album yet.
Of other interest, Steven has recently redone a lot of the King Crimson catalogue, as well as AQUALUNG. Good results all round.

Any fans of No-Sound should visit their website. Amongst a large selection of downloads is their very faithful live take of PINK FLOYDs "ECHOES". Well worth a listen.
Howling in an epic way, Dingo.
