In Absentia album for sale Product Description

In Absentia album for sale by Porcupine Tree was released Jan 13, 2008 on the Lava label. There's a breed of (post-1980s) bands with the same degree of grand rock experimentalism as Pink Floyd and Yes, who simultaneously adhere to the concept of concise songwriting. In Absentia CD music Porcupine Tree is one such band--their sound is a balance of lush ambient textures, charming vocal harmonies, rock & roll directness, and acoustically- and electronically-generated sounds. Their debut IN ABSENTIA shows all these elements in place, rich with the likely possibility of them becoming a contemporary counterpart to Pink Floyd. In Absentia CD music is a 2-disc set with 15 songs.   ...See Full Description

Definitely worth the extra $$$
If I had known that the bonus tracks Drown With Me and Chloroform were going to be so good, I would have bought this version of this CD. The whole album is good, I even bought the DVD-A (which I noticed isn't sold on here anymore--it also contains the two tracks this CD has plus the track Futile). I think it was definitely worth the extra money--the Euro releases almost always have bonus material that we don't get in the US so if you are a die hard PT fan, get this before it too goes out of print.

Renewed my faith
Dark yet beautiful soundscapes. Some guitar bits too "metal"-ish for this old progger. Loved some of the "Hackett"-ish guitar riffs. Unusual vocal harmonies correspond to dark feel of songs. I prefer a more mellow, melodic keyboard-oriented sound but have ordered I.E.M. and Blackfield to get a diverse feel for SW's talent. On this CD, check out Trains, The Sound of Muzak, Prodigal.
