    I know many on here loved his last album and tour. The new album sounds like it may be very different - check out the video of the track Pariah in link above.
    Playing Bridgewater Hall on 31st March - 2018. tickets on pre sale this morning and general sale on Friday
    Love the sound of the new stuff. Sights Talk Talk, The The, XTC Tears for Fears etc as influences on this. Andy Partridge has some involvement as well.

    Is this album worth getting? I liked his Raven that Refused to Sing and most of the Porcupine Tree stuff is great. Judging by his list of influences it sounds like this is more pop oriented.

    Everything Steve Wilson does is nigh on perfect - solo work, Porcupine Tree, No-Man etc.

    And yes, Barbieri is a fantastic keyboard player.

    I'll be there at the Bridgewater Hall.

    Have you tried the Raven follow up Hand Cannot Erase? If not, do so. My album of the century so far.....

    I haven't- cheers will add that to my wish list with a birthday coming up

    I rate Barbieri also. Was a big fan of Japan back in the day - between him and Mick Karn on bass they had an awesome sound.
