Fear of a Blank Planet album for sale by Porcupine Tree was released Apr 24, 2007 on the Atlantic (Label) label.

Fronted by vocalist/guitarist Steven Wilson (No-Man), and featuring keyboardist Richard Barbieri (formerly of the pioneering New Wave act Japan), the London-based art-rock ensemble continues its simultaneously heavier and more sophisticated direction, as embodied by the atmospheric and melodic "Way Out of Here," which veers into some crushingly weighty passages.

||Porcupine Tree - Fear of A Blank Bank Account|
The music here on this, Porcupine Pee's (what is it, like their 12th CD?) is decent but compared to their first four, maybe five discs, it's very much of a let down I'm afraid. I recently saw Porcupine Tree on tour here in the states and I'm almost sorry to say that I likely won't go see them again. I assume Steve Wilson and crew really was in fear of a blank bank account. Worst case of selling out I've seen in sometime. Nice going, Bubba!

||A Complete Album!|
I've had this album for a long time now, and I still like it. I have most of PT's albums and this would be my favorite (honorable mention for Signify) because it so cohesive. It blends sounds from all my favorite bands including Tool, Radiohead, NIN and so on, but it still sounds unique. Great song writing, great lyrics and great production! "My Ashes" is one of my all time favorite songs by any band.

Never fear, PT is here. Come taste the band. This time they've taken another step in the prog music scene. If you haven't heard of PT or Steven Wilson for that matter you're missing out. "Sentimental" is my fave off this release, a definite extension of "Trains" from their In Abstentia CD. "Anesthetize" is the lenghty killer track. "My Ashes" starts out with haunting keyboards like Zeppelin's "No Quarter". Would be nice if the CD was a tad longer. Listen to the whole CD from beginning to end before coming to any conclusions and check out Blackfield, just one of SW's other far out projects. PT also has a live DVD out that's fantastic! Enjoy.

PT is a band that just keeps pumping out strong albums, almost like one after another. Along with Katatonia, PT is one of the most consistent bands certainly in the last 10 yrs. A musical summary of what is FOABP; first off, Steven Wilson has an immaculate sense of melody, and is a pretty damn good guitar player. Richard Barbieri(keys) is just brilliant. And Gavin Harrison(drummer) is fast becoming a phenom. Colin Edwin holds it all together with his superb bass playing. The contribution of the London Session Orchestra is sublime throughout the album, but the last 2 minutes of the last song "Sleep Together" is just stunning. Let's face it, PT writes excellent songs, and if a band does'nt write good songs well...............Pick this up, Pronto.

||Fear of a dud lyric|
A bit of a disappointment, this one. Coming after "DEADWING" and 'IN ABSENTIA" it is a bit rushed and under realised. They remain amongst the most gifted and cohesive ensemble players around however. Steven is still a scatter gun lyricist and badly needs to collaborate. Still, it is a grower- it takes a hi-res system to hold it together. The guys need time off the road to rest and recharge.
