To the Bone is the fifth studio album by English recording artist Steven Wilson, released August 18th 2017 on Caroline International. It was recorded two-and-a-half years after the release of Hand. Cannot. Erase. (2015), and one year after his mini-album, 4½ (2016). According to Wilson, the album is inspired by the progressive pop records of his youth, such as Peter Gabriel's' So, Kate Bush's Hounds of Love, Talk Talk's The Colour of Spring and Tears for Fears' The Seeds of Love.
To The Bone has received positive reviews from critics. Uncut magazine stated "Wilson's fifth solo LP is a lush and ambitious piece of progressive pop music. Hitting on some heavy influences, including Peter Gabriel, Depeche Mode, Bends-era Radiohead, and Todd Rundgren's electronic ballads, this insistently melodic, 11-song set is an old-school, sum-of-its parts experience". Planet Rock rated the album five stars commenting “Steven Wilson delivers his progressive masterpiece”. Jordan Blum of Rebel Noise magazine said "To the Bone is both a great album in its own right and a perfectly appropriate addition to Wilson's vast body of work"
All songs by Steven Wilson, except "To the Bone" and "Nowhere Now" by Steven Wilson and Andy Partridge.
