Giu 22 2009, 3:36 di xxrampantchaosAfter listening to these songs over and over again (up to 15 times or more in a row, I kid you not), I deem the following songs the best songs ever.
1) Marillion - Script for a Jester's Tear
This song is just beyond words. This is my number one without fail.
2) Porcupine Tree - A Smart Kid
Most-played track for a reason.
3) Marillion - Fugazi
Fish is a genius.
4) Marillion - Chelsea Monday
5) Opeth - Face of Melinda
6) No-Man - Chelsea Cap
By chance, another "Chelsea" song. So great.
7) Porcupine Tree - Fadeaway
One of my ultimate PT favorites.
8) Tim Bowness/Samuel Smiles - Sorry Looking Soldier
So sad but so beautiful.
Giu 17 2009, 0:44 di AokaadoIf your life was a movie, what would the soundtrack be?
Here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool...
7. Just hope it matches. It won't for sure. That's why it's dumb.

Apr 27 2008, 2:39 di TheWhimWhamSat 26 Apr – Porcupine Tree, Sleep Parade
Saw one of my favourite bands last night: Porcupine Tree, along with support act Sleep Parade.
Firstly, the support act was very good, and it was great to see Steven Wilson and co. give recognition to an interesting progressive Aussie act.
As to PT, they were great, truly. Wilson was exactly as you'd expect, apologising for not coming Down Under sooner. He kept things fairly light-hearted, too. I must admit that when the topic of "epic tracks" came up, I momentarily hoped for The Sky Moves Sideways, but who was I kidding?
Here's the setlist:
1. Fear of a Blank Planet
2. What Happens Now?
3. The Sound of Muzak (a highlight for me)
6. Open Car
7. Dark Matter (another highlight)
9. A Smart Kid (yet another highlight)
10. Blackest Eyes
11. Way Out of Here (great live, IMHO)
12. Sleep Together
Dic 15 2007, 19:20 di JohnBHenryI was bored at work on Tuesday this week. It was the day before the Porcupine Tree gig so I was listening to a lot of Porcupine Tree. So decided to do a few more drawings based on music.
I usually try to describe the drawings, but can't be bothered today so I'll leave the interpretation to you.
So here goes, first song Fadeaway.
Next up Piano Lessons
Then we have Strip the Soul
And finally, Trains
That's all the poorly drawn fan-art I'm going to force on the world, so as an aside I also picked up a copy of Pelican's new DVD "After The Ceiling Cracked" and have to say the 3" cd with it is possibly one of the cutest things in the world. Pics below.
Gen 23 2006, 23:52 di m4t3kSchrollum is his journal included links to some new music. One of it's performers is Clann Zú. I know just these songs with I downloaded from their official site, though I think they make (made) really good tunes. I didn't know that I like strings ;)
But before I heard Clann Zú I had been listening to Xiu Xiu for a while and I know that their (or maybe his?) music is creepy and heavy psychedelic. Most of the songs are electronical with just a little guitar, rarely live drums. I Luv the Valley OH!, Crank Heart, Sad Pony Guerilla Girl (except noise in the end :/) and Bunny Gamer (b) are my favourites. And I check video to Pox. It's grotesque. Here's the link:
Xiu Xiu - Pox video
And last but not the least: XM II by Porcupine Tree. This is live album (just like firts XM). It means that songs are played live (if you haven't guess yet), but quality is studio-like. Tracklist is following:
5. Pure Narcotic
6. Russia on Ice
