Edit this setlist | More Porcupine Tree setlists
Muy, muy lejos. 100 pesos de taxi, de hecho. Odio el teatro Diana en principio, debido a que no es un auditorio acústicamente apropiado, por que está diseñado arquitecturalmente para ser un teatro: el sonido debe llegar, con poca amplificación, a todo el público. El rebote del sonido no es el apropiado, y sobre todo, no es el lugar para Porcupine Tree. Esta banda, señoras y señores, es más como para el Teatro Estudio Cavaret, donde, por un precio módico, se puede estar hasta adelante, haciendo headbanging (posiblemente yo en peligro de volver a abrirme una ceja por un golpe), y cantando como loca desquiciada.
Una de las tantas bandas que quería ver antes de morir, era Porcupine Tree. Sin embargo, no me imaginaba que tipo de público aquí en guadalajara los escuchaba. No me sorprendieron los cuarentones con sus niños portando las remeras de Yes. …
23 Jul 2008, 05:11 by GryphonAvocatio8 Months late: Nick's Musical Review of 2007
The reason I do this now is that in a lot of cases it takes a while to fully digest some albums; for instance, it took me more than a year and half to appreciate Opeth's Ghost Reveries--in fact, there was a part of me that reviled that album for a long time. The other reason is because I meant to do this months ago and the sheer amount of real work I had to do interfered with the work I wanted to do. And a bit of laziness.
So here it is, my review of albums for the year 2007: The best and the disappointments, and a few noteworthy items as well. I hope that I don't miss anything too obvious, but I think that everything of utmost importance will be here.
The Top Albums of 2007:
+ Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos
When I first heard this album in July I wasn't a fan. I hadn't even finished digesting album artist=Dream Theater]Octavarium[/album] yet (and I didn't like it either at that point). …
29 Dec 2007, 07:42 by WalrusOct9The Great:
Bjork - Auditorium Theatre, May 12. Simply amazing, I can't really put it into words. I've loved her for years, but even after listening to her albums hundreds of times, the songs still startled me in a live setting, really beautiful stuff. Plus she did 4 tunes from Vespertine, my favorite album, which I wasn't expecting at all. "Unison" live may make the list of Top 10 live songs I've ever seen.
Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band - United Center, Oct. 21 & 22. I don't know which night to pick, so I'm just going to cheat and group them together. How could I pick between hearing "Candy's Room" and "Thundercrack" on the first night and "Spirit in the Night" on the second? I know it's not 1978, but after building up an E-Street show in my mind (and on my stereo) for years, it somehow did manage to live up to my expectations. Plus, GA standing floor tickets mean no corporate people sitting down and being bored for half…

E' bello scoprire che ci sono cose nella vita che ancora sono in grado di renderti felice... durerà magari solo un paio d'ore, forse meno, ma in quei 120 minuti riesci come per incanto ad abbandonare i tuoi pensieri, l'apatia, l'autodistruttività e a lasciarti semplicemente andare, di nuovo entusiasta e finalmente libero da te stesso.
Forse è ancora il ricordo vivido del concerto a rendermi così partecipe e coinvolto, ma i Porcupine Tree sono riusciti a donarmi queste sensazioni, a farmi pensare per un attimo solamente ai loro testi così finemente introspettivi e alle loro incredibili evoluzioni sonore, che sanno spaziare dalla malinconia tipica dei primi album alla "potenza" non meno espressiva dei loro ultimi lavori.
Già, perché a differenza di quanto avviene solitamente, Steven Wilson e compagni hanno deciso di regalarci qualcosa di più di un semplice concerto di promozione del loro ultimo meraviglioso album…

19 Sep 2007, 13:20 by BinarySlaveI received the new Porcupine Tree E.P last week, ‘Nil Recurring‘.
I was quite excited at the prospect of this new material. It was recorded during the same sessions as the recent Fear of a Blank Planet (FOABP) album but deemed unsuitable, although the band have been at great pains to point out that this was for artistic reasons rather than it being sub par. That’s not to say that these tracks are conceptually any different to the album, but they wouldn’t have necessarily fit into the flow of the six other tracks on it.
Besides, Steven Wilson is a clever chap and probably didn’t want FOABP to be too much of heavy listen. Six tracks (one being 17 mins in length) about the current X Box generation spiralling out of control is probably enough for one sitting!
I’ve had a good old listen to Nil Recurring over the last week and have to say, it’s very very (very!) good! The average track length is a good 7 mins, so we have half an hour of new content here!
13 Jul 2007, 23:02 by eliajohaWed 11 Jul – Porcupine Tree, Pure Reason Revolution
Finally they came to Norway! Well, actually they visited us once before, as stand-ins for “The Mars Volta” under the Quart festival in 2005, but this time they didn’t arrive as stand-ins. Now Norway was a part of the “Fear of a Blank Planet” tour.
Rockefeller opened the doors at 8 o’clock, and when I arrived, an hour later, there was no queue outside. I got upstairs to the second floor, and despite a full house, I found the perfect spot! I could see the whole stage all evening!
After a short period of time, Pure Reason Revolution entered the stage. I am a huge fan, so I was looking forward to finally seeing them live. PRR delivered their stuff and played one great song after the other. And when my PRR favourite “The Twycyn / Trembling Willows” was played, followed by “Golden Clothes” accompanied by Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison, I couldn’t stop smiling. I was happy!
