I would think he surely does. The whole marketing campaign for this album feels very tongue-in-cheek.
This first band is Soen very cool swingy jazz fusion kinda stuff.

Does he see the irony? *insert lyrics of Personal Shopper here*  ;)

But at least it's for a good cause.

I think that’s exactly what this whole thing is about ;)

He's probably sitting at home, laughing about it all. But sometimes I'm not sure if he's not really an arrogant snob.

Listened to the single just before passing out last night. It was....okay. This is certainly shaping up to be an interesting album, but with every single I listen to, I'm more and more glad I didn't shell out for the big box set and just pre-ordered the normal CD.

I wonder if this will be the last single release considering the album is due out in less than 2 months? I also wonder if he wishes he just released the album in the summer because at this rate, it doesn't look like he'll be able to tour the way he wants to for at least another half-year.

Very milquetoast song. Without the lyrics it's entirely forgettable. Nothing to grab my attention and hold it. Background music while doing chores. Gonna pass on this release and see how he morphs next time.

Props to him for following his muse though.

I stopped paying attention to the singles. It's better to wait for the whole thing.  ;D

As with Transatlantic's new upcoming release, I haven't heard any of the new tracks or samples of the new albums. Will just hear the entire thing. I've found I enjoy the album a lot more when I do that, similar to not watching trailers for upcoming movies or shows.

I've heard it once and have no desire to hear it again, which is extremely weird for me after being a huge fan of his since 2002. The whole song and arrangement/chords is typical SW but I'm not feeling the magic this time around.

Sounds like a Blackfield song. Same as emtee, not feeling this one either.

At this point I have heard more than half of the album (4 singles together are somewhere in the 20 minutes total, album is 42 minutes) and basically every song is solid but forgettable for me, which means at least half the album is. So this time I'll pass buying it as well.

That is a fantastic music video. Perfectly describes the song. Perfect for today as well.

Great video.  The song is still one I merely like, but I almost always like videos that are that arty and creative.  :hat :hat

The entire album is very creative and arty. Reminds me of Bowie, in that Art aspect. And Prince with the creativity within the art and music. Actually this album is reminding me of a mix of Bowie and Prince. But we'll see when it gets released.

I do see Steven Wilson as a bit of a modern day Bowie. Not in terms of crazy outfits and probably not even in terms of how he sounds. Just a guy who makes sophisticated intelligent music and doesn’t pander to his audience but still manages to be successful.  He’s nowhere near the legendary status of David Bowie nor has he written iconic songs so I am not putting him on that level, I just kind of see him as an artist of the same ilk.

While typing that and looking for something else, saw this. It's not just me then, and a lot of other people likely notice this. :lol



Makes me wonder just exactly how he was planning on doing the touring. How he would've fit that aspect into the concept, with the ticketing, venues, promotion, and Day of show dealings within the venue. Kind of like how Dream Theater had that NOMAC screen to give you your Astonishing name and whether you are either part of Ravenskill or Great Northern Empire.

When you look at the direction he went on To the Bone and the sound of these new songs so far, I think it goes without saying that the deaths of Bowie and Prince made him want to chase the internal part of his musical self that has always been influenced by those two.

I never realized about that. Good point. That makes a lot of sense, and shows just how much the music of Prince and Bowie really affected Steven.
