Found Link: The Hindu loves Porcupine Tree

While I work on my review of the 5.1 DVD-Audio version of Porcupine Tree's The Incident, I'll share this mainstream press look at the epic album. In a review that make my use of superlatives to be modest, The Hindu - India's National Newspaper- praises the album for its guts and bravado. As they should.

Whenever I look around at what most of the general population consider "good music" these days, the popularity of Steven Wilson's latest magnum opus is truly refreshing. The Incident still proves to be an album that will stand the test of time. It's certainly a grower, and even those that dismissed it upon release are beginning to come around to its song-cycle structure. Click below to read what The Hindu has to say.

The Hindu : Metro Plus Bangalore / Music : Beatstreet: "The epic 11-minute track is simply one of Porcupine Tree's best. Embodied in melodic simplicity with a rhythmic strumming pattern the piece undulates with cascading crescendos, a rumbling mid-section and a propulsive finish."
