About the 5.1 Blu ray. This really is the way to experience this record (or any record for that fact). The music spread around in a way that you have a audio landscape. Steven Wilson is the King of the 5.1 mix so there is no suprise here as to how good it is. Surround sound really is the ultimate audio experience and this one will be getting played a lot!
If you like Robert Fripp's Soundscapes records or you are one of the privileged that have discovered Talk Talk's Spirit Of Eden or Laughing Stock you should like this!
Whenever an album is released by Opeth or Porcupine Tree, more often than not you never concretely know what to expect until you hear the first cut from it. The main creative forces between those bands (Mikael Akerfeldt and Steve Wilson, respectively) consistently have delivered an ever-evolving and soul-enriching sound, whether it's the almost literary brutality of Ghost Reveries or the cerebral pendulum of The Incident.
Back in the autumn of 2011, Opeth released their Heritage album, which challenged their listeners, yet galvanized their hardcore fans. Shortly after, Wilson (who mixed Heritage) released his indescribably beautiful Grace for Drowning. I purchased both when they were released and I absolutely adored them. They were and are testaments to unearthly musicianship that make no apologies for beauty and take you on a remarkably cathartic journey.
Then the idea was mentioned by one of them that these were two pieces of a greater (yet unofficial) trinity. A collaboration between them, something anxiously awaited by fans of both, was under way. Even though fans were going mad with expectation (just look at the Facebook page's wall), they kept the sound deeply under wraps until they set loose the video for the first cut from it.
Now we have the rest of it.
Those who heard/watched 'Drag Ropes' will have a good idea what to expect. Storm Corrosion is dark, brooding, intellectual and atmospheric. The melodies are delicate and modest, while the moods and depth are utterly lush. The album is unlike anything I've heard and yet you can hear the strains of Opeth and Wilson's solo project within it.Read more ›
I anticipated prog metal, knowing the history of these two, but this is more ambient with lots of mellotron.
There a feel of latter era Talk Talk. Some of it reminds me of early Pink Floyd (think Grantchester Meadows).
Very rewarding music if you're willing to listen and soak it all in.
