    Very good band. Steven Wilson is a genius and In Absentia is just amazing.


    Any fans?

    I have Up the downstairs which is pretty good but I'd have to hear more to consider myself a fan.

    I think In Absentia is freakin' awesome.

    The little bit I've heard of their other stuff, I haven't been as impressed with. I need to hear more.

    Definitely hear some more.

    I'd recommend Lightbulb Sun and In Absentia.

    I liked the song that was on the hard drive of my XBOX 360 when I bought it, but I haven't listened to any other of their music yet.

    Love them to death. They are one of my all time favourites.

    Fantastic, fantastic band. Steven Wilson is a musical god. I can't wait for his side-project with Akerfeldt and Portnoy.

    'Mellotron Scratch' is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

    I have nearly all of their official releases as a 4 piece band since 96 with Signify, minus Deadwing, which i have been meaning to buy. I also have his stuff prior to 96 like Up the downstair and On the sunday of life, and I also have downloaded some rare stuff like Tarquin Seaweed Farm and Love,death, and mussolini.
    I also have seen them live once in Detroit, 10-8-05, sweet show!
