From JuanLuisGG14 08/25/2018 18:21
A powerful prog album with many influences from pop and electronica. This may sound like a wreck, but Wilson manages to use them successfully. Pop melodies are like painting brushes, giving color to the album, and a lot of subtle details. Story is awesome, and depicts a lot of feelings with a depth only Steven can provide. Wilson has found the sweet spot on which there is cohesion yet the tracks work individually without losing their strength.
Top tracks: 3 years older, Routine, Regret 9, Ancestral, Happy Returns
High: Transience, Perfect Life, Home Invasion, Hand Cannot Erase

The album title is so powerful. As well as the story it is inspired from. And the album does justice to both of them. The music is so urgent and the album FEELS important. I love and am haunted by the imageries it invokes. Hand. Cannot. Erase. Its so good! I really want more people to listen to it.

Steven takes inspiration from the unsettling true story of Joyce Carol Vincent and explores themes of isolation and alienation in urban environments (not necessarily Hemel Hempstead).

Steven Wilson is a genius, and I enjoy listening to the individual songs, but I can't help feeling I have heard this before.

From Junomoogmello 09/23/2017 09:25
This is a superb album. Way ahead of the current field in musicianship and instrumentation. Regret 9 has to be the best Moog solo of all time, coupled with the bass pedals the track makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, the switch from Moog solo to lead guitar solo is seamless. Fantastic!

Original. Aggressive. Artistic. Creative. Unique. Captivating. Quality. So many adjectives to describe a sound I've heard nowhere else. Music of pure inspiration. Boundary-pushing.

On top of other title callouts below I have to say Three Years Older is just as classic as the rest of these tracks.

It's one of the most beautiful albums ever, without a doubt. It may be more beautiful than the most beautiful Porcupine Tree music, and that, too, is saying something, I think.
