5.0 out of 5 stars A modern prog masterpiece! March 24 2013

Steven Wilson continues to surprise us with his endless productivity by delivering his best solo effort by now. The album is flawless as compared to Insurgentes and Grace for drowning which were pretty good! There is not a single weak moment and the musicians are incredible!Hats Off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just keeps getting better! March 4 2013
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Steven Wilson has done his best record outside of Porcupine Tree to date. This album has a whole different feel (mostly do to using a band instead of building tracks up one by one) but in no way has he lost his sound. The first track is like Yes meets Jethro Tull. The bass playing during the intro does have a bit of a Chris Squire sound. But as always with Wilson you can hear the influences but not in the sence of copying the other artist but more of an tribute but adding his own Steven Wilson twist to that music. Over all this is very much a Steven Wilson album. If you like the other two you should really like this. The production and engineering are second to none. Alan Parsons stll has it (listed as engineer and co producer) were all Wilson records have great sound I feel Parsons was a very good choice for Wilson's first time in the studio with his live band.
This subject matter has been done before and this is on par with Alan Parson's Profect's "tales of Mystery and imagination" and is miles ahead of Lou Reed's "The Raven".
This will be spending a lot of time in my car or bedroom stereo but for my home system I am going with the 5.1 blu ray. After all he is the king of 5.1!

5.0 out of 5 stars Steven Wilson : def. Musical Genius Feb. 26 2013
Format:Audio CD
I just finished my first listen of the new SW album, The Raven That Refused to Sing and other stories.

Expectations were high and are far exceded!! This is, IMO, his finest work as a solo artist to date.

If you're a Porcupine Tree fan, get this album!

If you're a Progressive Rock fan, get this album!!

If you're a music aficionado by any means and appreciate any and all type of music, get this album now!!

Also, the recording quality is amazing!!

5.0 out of 5 stars he still amaze me after all those years! Oct. 14 2013
By Daniel Fournier TOP 1000 REVIEWER

I often say right from the get go that I am a blind person, in any other communications with people I don't mention it, but in this you will see why I mention it. I am a totaly big fan of porcupine tree and Wilson. And the funny thing is that I did dislike the one before, but never give up the hope that it is me that is missing something and just yesterday I at last see how great of an album it is. this one, I have like it from the moment I had a chance to listen to it. And I was wondering why? there must be something that wilson did different. I ask a friend to read me the little book, and kind of right a way I realise that alan parson was involve in the project. that did explain everything. For me I am totaly sure that it is those guys that bring a certain magic to this album. the dimension, the quality of the sound and so on.
This in my opinion was an album that was meant right from the get go to please. Like Robert Fripp, S. Wilson at time could careless if the fan will like it or not, it is not is goal, of course if we like it , it is a big plus.
But Fripp and wilson has so much in commun, not music wise but the way they run the business side of it.
but this album, I do believe that S. wilson wanted a certain hit out of it.
and who is better qualify than allan parson to put the chances on your side.
but a side of all this. this is an album that is easy to take, the flow is not cheesey but at the same time, not totaly commercial.
He has found the right balance.
I bought the cd first, but I am planning to purchase the blu ray version.
I don't know if you have try , but if you like a cd a lot, try to pay less, like me I pay five dollars on market place, this way if I really love it, I will dish out the 30 dollars or so for blu ray.
