    "The centre-piece is the title track, which takes up the whole of the first disc. The 55-minute work is described as "a slightly surreal song cycle about beginnings and endings and the sense that 'after this, things will never be the same again'."

    The self-produced album is completed by four standalone compositions that developed out of band writing sessions last December - Flicker, Bonnie The Cat, Black Dahlia, and Remember Me Lover feature on a separate EP length disc to stress their independence from the song cycle."




    This gave me the impression that the four tracks are the four parts of the previously mentioned 55 milnute song cycle, but are split in four on another CD to make it more accessible or w/e.

    I think its one disc with the 55min song, then another disc with the 5 other songs.

    I'm psyched!! I don't care about pretentiousness or pompousness, or any of that bullshit. If it's good music, that's what counts!

    ...and I don't even know what's meant by "pseudo-metal". In Absentia and Deadwing are virtually flawless. IMO, of course.:saint:

    This.

    But I also think that "cycle" means it's going to be actually divided into songs rather than it being just one whole. Like "Six degrees of inner turbulence" and unlike "Crimson".

    I'm inclined to agree with Guitar-Non-Player on this one too. I appreciate the idea behind a 55-minute song cycle, and I'm looking forward to seeing what P Tree has done with the it, but it will be a lot to take in at once, and finding your favorite parts will probably be a hassle. maybe it'll be broken up similar to Meshuggah's Catch 33...

    That's a pointless waste of time. Why bother hearing it at all if you know you won't like it? Just so you can ridicule it for the 'benefit' of all the people who do like it?

    no. i like the old porcupine tree material enough to listen to the new albums, if only once, just for that slight chance that steven wilson decided to write something good again. but im inclined to believe that just like everything after IA, with the exception of a couple of tracks, it will be a boring pretentia fest

    It needs to leak so I can listen to it a shitload and let it sink in before I'm worrying about school.
