    Porcupine Tree's Stupid Dream coming early 2006 in 5.1 DVD-A

    Placed my order for both the CD/DVD as well as the LP. How bad is it that I own the original, but I'm just as pumped about a reissue as I was when I got the original? LMAO.

    Porcupine Tree's Stupid Dream coming early 2006 in 5.1 DVD-A

    I wonder how early in 2006? We're already seeing a lot of PT material releasing. Metanoia is being reissued on CD February 27th. The ultra rare Transmission IV Moonloop is being released on vinyl the same day. We've already had a Bass Communion album come out this month and another vinyl BC...

    Too Early for Best of 2005?

    Porcupine Tree's Deadwing has to be in there somewhere. At the top in my opinion. I thought Opeth's Ghost Reveries would have been on my list. It blew me away for the first couple of weeks, but now I haven't listened to it in forever. It's still a real nice album, but just doesn't have the...

    Porcupine Tree's Stupid Dream coming early 2006 in 5.1 DVD-A

    I can't wait to hear this album in surround sound, especially those harmony vocals on Baby Dream In Cellophane! I was even more pleased to hear the news about Transmission IV. Now I won't have to spend $3-400 on a used copy of the 40-min Moonloop improv.

    Opeth - Ghosts Reveries

    I too find the production to be of very high quality. My car listening experience was very exciting because my metal dome tweeters usually kill my ears with metal. But for the most part, this album is very clean and I can crank the levels quite high. The album was produced by a guy named Jens...

    Opeth - Ghosts Reveries

    I received my copy from Tower Records a day early. I'm very happy. I don't know how many of you are fond of Opeth, but this is their best album yet. Damnation was great, but a one-of type album. Though the mellow tracks on this album outdo some songs on Damnation. Mikael Akerfeldt puts...

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    Well, I already have both albums, so I'm personally hoping for some changes of some form. That way there is more incentive to give them my money. I'm probably already going to buy them again, since the money I spent on the original versions did not go into PT's pocket. :frowning:

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    All my Amazon orders were canceled as well. The new Carbon Nation 4 has an in-depth interview with Mr. Wilson and it seems that SD and LBS are going to be straight reissues with no remastering or anything. Though on the PT web site it sounds like there may be some remastering. Who knows? I...

    When are covers preferred over the originals?

    Here's a rarely heard cover that I like... Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) doing an acoustic cover of Abba's "The Day Before You Came." Wow, it is incredible. I never really liked Abba that much before, but this track by Wilson is phenomenal.

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    There is info on this topic in the new Carbon Nation. I haven't recieved my copy yet so I don't know all the details. From what I am hearing, we're just going to get a straight reissue of Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun. There won't be any remastering. And we will probably see a 5.1 mix of...

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    My order was canceled too. I'm glad I already have a copy. My orders for LS, 4 Chords, and Metanoia are still on so far though.

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    They're even showing a listing for Metanoia right now! I know in the new Carbon Nation SW spoke of reissueing LS and SD, but everything is coming out of the woodworks...and so soon! Crazy. No other store is listing these albums at all though.

    Get over to Amazon.com right away! Pure Narcotic Single: $10.49 4 Chords Single: $12.98 Lightbulb Sun (Single disc version): $17.98 Stupid Dream: $12.98 All brand new!!! Warning though, it does say 1-2 weeks for shipping. That usually doesn't bode well, but for them to suddenly show all...

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    Unfortunately many of Porcupine Tree's releases are out of print. Some just because that's the way the world of music sometimes works out, especially when label hopping. Sometimes its because PT has limited the number of copies to sell. Recordings was limited to 20,000 copies and is now sold out...

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    Awesome info Felix! Much appreciated. I'm already eager for some older releases in DVD-A. Up The Downstair and The Sky Moves Sideways would be phenominal in this format, what with there spacey feel and all!

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    Well, Opeth definitely had the mellow stuff. SW definitely didn't tell them to start doing mellow stuff. Still Life is my favorite non SW related Opeth album...and it is far better than Deliverance. But Steven was every bit the reason the last three albums were as good as they were. Watching...

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    Your right Chris, 2, 3, and 4 are sweet off Blackwater Park. Steven Sounds really great on his parts on "Bleak." I actually never fully listened to that song until recently and discovered Steven singing on it. I also just realized a couple of weeks ago that there was a double version of...

    Bad experiences with Amazon's Marketplace...

    I've probably used Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk's Market Places a total of 20 times or so. Mainly for Porcupine Tree material. Only one problem thus far. A CD never shipped. But I did get my money back for it though. So far, I would recommend it, personally. You can generally tell how reliable...

    Porcupine Tree - Up The Downstair

    Porcupine Tree just reissued their 1993 album Up The Downstair in a 2CD DigiPak edition. The album is scheduled to release in the US in June. I couldn't wait that long, so I imported. We can use this thread for discussion of the album, if anyone cares to, that is. It'll be interesting to see how...

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    I hear where you're coming from Mackie. I was never into the extreme heavy riffs. I heard Opeth's Damnation album first and very much liked it. There are no heavy riffs or death vocals on this album at all. It's all clean and mellow. When I grabbed some other Opeth albums, I was in utter...

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    Opeth's lead singer Mikael Akerfeldt definitely has the best growls in the business, in my opinion. I've never been a fan of that type of singing, but I can definitely tolerate him. It's the ways he mixes the growls and heavy riffs with soothing vocals and mellow melodies all in the same...

    Porcupine Tree - Deadwing due March 22nd 2005

    The track is titled Shesmovedon. It is a remade version of the same song from PT's 2000 release "Lightbulb Sun," which is another stellar album from the group.

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    And Mr. Wilson has, he's made a lot of songs about mainstream music, but no one listens. It is also ironic to me that the major US single for Deadwing is titled "Shallow." :) How convenient.

    Internet CD Collection Sites

    I tried searching to no real avail. I'd like to start listing my CD collection on an Intenet site. I have found a few. Like Guzzlefish.com but I don't really need all that info and half the CD's I own aren't even listed there and I don't want to go through the rig-a-maroo of posting them...

    Porcupine Tree-Where do I start?

    That's a good question. I would start with either of thier newest albums, since they are easy to find. I personally would try In Absentia first. It was their 2002 release. That album is a little more accessible. But it still has the vintage PT and all the vocal harmonies and solos aplenty. If...

    favourite bands

    I really don't like a lot of groups. I'm pretty picky and I definitely have a dislike of most anything mainstream. Rock Porcupine Tree - Just about all their stuff Heavy Metal Opeth - All seven of their albums Rap Three 6 Mafia - From their album Chpt. 2 all the way back to the...

    Porcupine Tree - Deadwing due March 22nd 2005

    I guess we'll just make this the anything PT thread. www.porcupinetree.com has been updated again. I mentioned this in an earlier post in this thread. However, it is nice to hear conformation on the Staircase Infinities bonus disc. I believe May 22 pertains to a European release only as...

    Porcupine Tree - Deadwing due March 22nd 2005

    This isn't Deadwing related, but I didn't feel like starting a whole new thread. Amazon.com is offering Lightbulb Sun (Special Edition) for $13.99 right now!!! I guess they came up on some new stock or something. Seems fishy. They had Recordings for $13.99 about a month ago and when I ordered...

    Lookin' for a song

    Hmmm...I don't know if this is it, but I have an album from a group in France called Gotan Project. They have more of an electronia feel, I don't know about as fast as techno. They use a lot of accordian though. My favorite track is the first one. I believe they have one or more albums than this...

    Porcupine Tree - Deadwing due March 22nd 2005

    You are correct in that assumption. In Absentia is another concept album. The album is about serial killers, rapists, and the like. The concept starts right away with "Blackest Eyes" with lyrics such as the following: - A mother sings a lullaby to a child Sometime in the future the boy goes...
