    Forgive him, Lord! What a stupid sentence! :ill: I really hope it is a false quote!

    (Even if you doubt about it, it IS a false quote)

    Who are they touring with this May? Maybe the question was already asked but I'm lazy and didn't feel like looking. I just don't feel like waiting through one or two shitty bands.

    So what group do I fit into? I actually like porcupine tree just as much as Opeth, Damnation + Deadwing being my current favs. Group C I assume. :D

    Once you do that (listen to it -Deadwing- more), you'll realize Deadwing is a more consistent and overall better album than IA.

    IA obviously has some weaker tracks (The Creator..., Strip The Soul), whereas Deadwing has none.

    It's all a matter of personal preference really. After many listens of Deadwing I'm still not a big fan of tracks like Halo, Start of Something Beutiful, or the title track. The production might be better, but overall I still prefer IA because the melodies/lyrics seem to be more personal/memorable on that album (at least for me).

    I think Shallow, as a single, is weaker than Strip the Soul. There are still some tracks on Deadwing which I don't really like (Start of Something Beautiful, Glass Arm Shattering). I also get the vibe that alot of the tracks on Deadwing sound too much alike. There is too much of a similar vibe throughout the album. I personally found IA to have more variety.

    Deadwing is growing on me... it's just not there yet :)

    I love Glass Arm Shattering. It's probably my favorite along with Arriving...

    The Creator isnt a weak song, wedding nails is a weak song.

    Haha... I like Wedding Nails too. Reminds me of King Crimson. What can I say I'm a fanboy?
