There, I'd have to disagree with you.  Mary (RushGrrrl) does a webcast on The Dividing Line Network called Underdog Prog Saturday nights 7-10pm eastern, and she just played some PT from about 2k that was GREAT last night!  I didn't own the album, so I'm getting it as soon as I can!  I like Steve Wilson's solo stuff also!

Um, 2000 PT is not "old".  Their '90s stuff is what I would consider old (it's pure psychedelic jam rock).  In Absentia and Lightbulb Sun would be classified as newer, and they're around 2001 I think (?).

They were heading towards "new" PT with Stupid Dream (1999) and Lightbulb Sun (2000) but didn't fully get there until In Absentia (2002). All three are great albums.

Agreed, and I think Lightbulb Sun is the most underrated, there's some killer stuff there.  I've never heard the original, just the redo with Gavin on drums.

It was Up The Downstair that had the drum parts re-recorded by Gavin. The original was pretty much a Wilson solo album utilising a drum machine for the drum parts. I've got both and I've no doubt that the re-release is superior.

I like Lightbulb Sun forward.  Can't get into Stupid Dream.  I don't see it as the 'new' package so much.  Agree that Lightbulb Sun is a very strong and underrated effort.  But when you follow it up with In Absentia, it's no wonder it gets overshadowed.  When I discuss PT with someone new to the band, In Absentia is where I start them and FoaBP is where I end.  The rest is up to them to explore and make their own mind up.  Those three albums (IA, DW, and FoaBP) are the best hands down.

I am pretty sure that The Raven and Grace are the best hands down. Porcupine who?

Admittedly, though, Even Less is amazing in high volume suround sound.

28.90 pounds sterling (includes shipping) to the U.S.A. Whew.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

SW is playing an in-store gig at Amoeba record store in the Haight on Wed at 6pm (the night before the Fillmore show). There will be a signing afterwards as well. Free to get in. I'll be there.

Went to Chicago gig Friday and WOW just WOW. Steven is a musical genius, what a fantastic show with amazing musicians. Didnt know Marco was back playing with SW, a great surprise for my friend who is a drummer and fan of Marcos.

Question for those of you who have gone to the shows, how long have they been running? If I end up going Friday trying to decide if I want to drive or take the train. I got screwed during the HoF since that didn't end until about 12:15am and the last train left 2 minutes before I got to the station.

In Toronto, the doors opened shortly after 8, the 20 minute "moon" intro started around 9 and they left the stage at 11:30

Fun time at Amoeba last night. They played 2 songs - No Twilight and Radioactive Toy. There were maybe 50-60 people there. Took my 8 year old, and she got a chance to meet SW, which she was thrilled about. Here's a pic of them. Looking forward to tonight.
