Blackfield
Review by Gary Hill
When I first got this CD I hadn't heard of it, but knowing that Steve Wilson of Porcupine Tree was involved in the project was enough to get my attention. As it turns out the album is a duo between Wilson and Israeli avant-garde hero Aviv Geffen.

Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
Review by Steve Alspach
Porcupine Tree may be strangers to these shores, but 2002's "In Absentia" made people stand up and take note, and with good measure. This outfit may have found the perfect balance of prog, metal, and gothic melancholia, and "In Absentia" was met with excellent reviews all around.

Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet
Review by Bill Knispel
Fear of a Blank Planet, Porcupine Tree’s third album on major label Atlantic Records, shows them refining their mix of progressive rock, pop and metal influences, adding in a few twists and new/old touches to keep their sound from becoming static. A conceptual album based around consumer culture and the dulling of senses in a society overrun with sensory stimuli, the album flows in a manner more consistent with the band’s earlier prog/space rock efforts than their more modern song-oriented efforts.

Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
Review by Steve Alspach
Steve Wilson's pet project (the group started as nothing more than just a fictional band several years ago) released their latest work, In Absentia, last year. The album is a thoughtful blend of melody, metal, and progressive.

Review by Gary Hill

No-Man - Schoolyard Ghosts
Review by Gary Hill
Porcupine Tree’s Steve Wilson is half of this outfit. In many ways the music is similar to the output of that group.

Porcupine Tree - Staircase Infinities
Review by Gary Hill
This disc is made up of outtakes from the Up The Downstair album. It is a brief, but quite strong, nearly instrumental album.
