An album I cannot wait for

In ten days time an album comes out which I simply cannot wait for: Grace For Drowning by Steven Wilson. Long-suffering readers of this site will know that I am a massive Porcupine Tree fan, and will (probably) understand. An amazing producer, songwriter and performer, Wilson is bringing out his most ambitious work to date: a double album of material, apparently veering away from the “metal-esque” leanings of recent PT output towards a sound more reminiscent of the golden age of ’70s prog. From what I’ve heard so far, we’re in for a real treat—Wilson is a master when it comes to evocative music, a real conjuror of atmosphere and menace (when required!)
