Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
Jun 22, 2022
90
A progressive rock classic that absolutely deserves all the praise it gets. In my opinion the first of their records that successfully blended accessible music with their early brand of psychedelic rock. This record even borders on metal at times, providing a little bit of something for everyone. Filled with some of their most popular tracks in "Trains" and "Blackest Eyes" and their most dark and depressing in "Heartattack..." and "Collapse...", this album just has it all. Excellent production and awesome performances make this one of their best and certainly turned them into one of the most recognizable prog rock bands of all time.
