Great Expectations

Good news: Porcupine Tree's new album, 'The Incident', went straight to no.23 in the UK albums chart in its launch week.  Consequently, the band is featured prominently on the BBC News 'Entertainment' homepage today, linked to an interview with Steven Wilson.

Bad news: the article is a remix of the usual "prog's back!" non-story and, worse, SW doesn't reject the label this time.


Yes, but how is the album? I'm still waiting for mine to arrive!

Meh. It's okay, but nothing special. I've received four new releases in the past fortnight or so, and 'The Incident' certainly isn't the highlight.

No specific complaints; it just doesn't interest me enough to justify the effort of a full review ("I quite like two tracks, but the rest's forgettable") and I wouldn't bother to see it performed live.
