Can someone recommend songs similar to this and to, say, Tool's 10,00 Days or Tool's Right In Two, Steven Wilson's Home Invasion/Regret #9, that kinda stuff.
long, mellow, heavy progressive songs like these.
Wilson possesses good form, musical thought, expressive sincerity and musical mobility which put him near to the top of the prog elite … a voice is so courageous, desperate, gentle, and pleases no less, than his melody.
This song always reminds me of Marmeladov in Crime and Punishment. He drinks to punish himself for the pain he's caused others, "And the more I drink, the more I feel it." That's what the bit about "Russia on Ice is burning a hole" means for me.
