Oooooh Steven Wilson


:heart
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

My earholes are ready for new Wilson. I turned my ladyfriend onto him just yesterday and she's in that overly-addicted, 'honeymoon' phase where she wants every piece of music by him and when I told her that a new album is on the horizon she just about creamed herself after saying that Raven is her new favorite album.

I'm ready for that groovy, soulful, melancholic awesomeness that this man does so well. I'm also ready for that flowing hair and scruffy beard on tour, which I will definitely not miss this time around.

And the record player is on a miniature train.

I love the new album snippets!

That "poppy" tune sounds wonderful. Anyone know what he's saying? I swear it sounds like he says "Handcat love", but I don't know what a handcat would be.

One last thing...anyone ever notice when SW says words with "n's" in them, he adds an "L" sound? Totally random, I know, but I've always been so curious as to whether or not I'm crazy, or if people know what I mean.

Example: "Window" would be "Wilndow"

SW has the potential to be my favorite songwriter but he just chooses not to. TRTRTS is one of my 20 favorite albums ever, but the rest of the PT and SW catalog doesn't sound anything like that. SW is against making 1970's prog in 2014 which is a shame, because the one time he tried it, it was spectacular. I just don't like Grace and Insurgurentes (sp?). PT doesn't do anything for me almost as a whole.

If I love 70's prog and The Raven, can someone give me some SW/PT songs to check out?

Following! I've given GfD and Insurgentes a few listens in the past few weeks, since I love them both but TRTRTS was my first SW album and thus has a lot more listens. Particularly GfD is just AWESOME.

His pre-Stupid Dream stuff is quite psychodelic and a bit proggy, so you should check either Signify or The Sky Moves Sideways.

I feel like the last couple of posts in the old SW thread should be here cause they had interesting stuff in them.

SW has the potential to be my favorite songwriter but he just chooses not to. TRTRTS is one of my 20 favorite albums ever, but the rest of the PT and SW catalog doesn't sound anything like that. SW is against making 1970's prog in 2014 which is a shame, because the one time he tried it, it was spectacular. I just don't like Grace and Insurgurentes (sp?).

Umm... he doesn't make music for you, brah.

I don't think anyone brought this up yet but SW's just released a song he did with Mariusz Duda of Riverside and Lunatic Soul for download at Burning Shed. Proceeds go to raising money for cancer charities.

From SW himself...

Quote
'Myself and my friend Mariusz Duda have teamed up to record a song together, and for a very special reason.

Alec Wildey was a young fan who for several years had been passionate about our music, actively helping out with promotion as a leading member of the PT and SW street teams from the tender age of 17, and setting up a street team for Mariusz in 2010. Some of you will almost certainly have met Alec, as he attended many of our concerts. If you did you will have found him to be a sensitive, extremely intelligent and articulate young man. He was a devoted and enthusiastic music listener and movie watcher, as well as a self-published poet, with a very bright future ahead of him.

Unfortunately on Christmas Eve 2013 Alec learned he had a cancer of the lymphatic system, followed shortly afterwards by an additional diagnosis of liver cancer. He began a course of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatment, but alas to no avail. At the end of July when he understood he had only a short time left, he emailed me to ask if it was possible that his two favourite musicians could set one of his poems to music, a long held dream of his. I immediately agreed but told him I would make a deal with him - I would make it happen if he could hang on long enough to hear it. We even discussed the possibility of him playing drums on the song himself. Unfortunately he passed away only a few weeks later on 25th August at the age of just 26, and so the idea to record the song has now become about honouring Alec's memory and all too short life, as well as a form of tribute to him and his family. One of Alec's poems The Old Peace has been beautifully set to music by Mariusz and sung and performed by both of us. It is now available to download from Burning Shed for a modest sum in both high resolution FLAC and mp3, with 50% of the proceeds going to the medical centre that cared for Alec during his final months, and 50% going to other cancer support group charities. We would be happy if as many people as possible paid for the official download (so please don't share it or upload it to any other sites) in order to raise as much as we can to help others that find themselves in the same awful situation. The song will be available to download until the end of January 2015, after which all the proceeds will be paid over to the cancer support groups.'
