I for one am very excited. I recently got into the band and got every track I could get my hands on.

Now the new album is coming out with a deluxe edition limited to 1,000 copies:

I ordered mine a couple days ago. Very happy Roadrunner didn't screw fans by releasing it 6 months later, as is their custom.

Thanks for the heads up!
I couldn't justify the $ of the limited version, but pre-ordered the standard 2 disc.

I discovered Porcupine Tree on their In Absentia tour when they were touring with Opeth. PT is just a phenomenal band.

Yep this has been on my radar for a while now. My favorite band. Not getting the deluxe thing though. There will inevitably be a separate 5.1 release and I'll just get that in addition to the standard release day CD. Only a month to go!

I did go for the deluxe edition...I am a sucker for that stuff, plus I missed out on the Steven Wilson one (but there is always eBay).

Also, for those wondering, the 5.1 mixes are fucking incredible. I got "Fear of a Blank Planet"...wow. Steven Wilson really knows his craft. I recommend that one (and I am sure the others are on par, if not better).

And I recommend the Steven Wilson solo album in 5.1 as well.

$106 is retarded.

Love PT but wont spend that money just to have it 5.1. I hope they do a seperate release (and with Roadrunner, thats a high probabilty). I cant wait for the CD!

And why is FoaBP so hard to find in 5.1 :mad:

I would love to buy the high resolution version for a reasonable price (DVD-A I am assuming) but certainly not for anywhere near $106.

I always forget about PTs store. 10 gbp isnt too shabby; and I think it includes Nil Recurring on there.

Thanks

Yes it does include the EP, which is also in 5.1.

The 5.1 release will most likely come from Burning Shed.

I'm holding out for that release because of SW's annoying habit of releasing bonus tracks on DVDs months after the initial release. The 2-disc CD probably has all the tracks on there, but I'm still hedging my bet.

I'll definitely be getting this one. Too bad they aren't coming through here on this tour.

2009 is turning out to be a very good year for me. Many of my favorite bands have/are puting out new records this year: mewithoutYou, Thrice, Muse and now PT. :dance:

Don't worry, this version isn't "high resolution" - it's a standard DVD with DTS audio. Much like Fear of a Blank Planet, and true DVD Audio will probably be released through Burning Shed down the road.

I'm going to the L.A. show on 9/19 (Club Nokia). It will be my 2nd time seeing PT, as I caught them last time in on the FoaBP tour in L.A/Hollywood venue (can't recall name). A great band to see perform in the flesh.

So when they say "high quality resolution stereo" on the order page that's just not true? I wasn't going to order anyway but if someone pays over $100 you would hope it includes what it says it includes.

Thanks for the info though.

I guess the stereo track, but not the 5.1, will be considered "high resolution." However, the point remains that a better release, but still containing audio playable on all DVD players, will probably be available from Burning Shed next year. And, for a lot less than $100.

i'm not sure if those 2 would mesh with the same fan base imo (granted, opeth did open for Dream Theater last year, so anything goes really)

and the opening band for this tour is Kings X

Now this I might have to go see. King's X is a band that gets ZERO respect and they fully deserve it. If you haven't heard them, do yourself a favor and grab Gretchen Goes To Nebraska and or Dogman.

First post, hello everyone...just wanted to clear up some things.

Porcupine Tree has played Texas twice. They visited Houston in 2005 and they came to Houston and Dallas in 2007. I went to both Houston shows. The first one was better than the second one because of the venue (in my opinion). I am almost positive they will be back for this tour, but it will be early next year. Probably January or February.

As far as Porcupine Tree and Opeth, they did tour together in 2003 or 2004...I can't remember which. Opeth were promoting Damnation and the Tree were promoting In Absentia. Steven Wilson produced, mixed, sung backing vocals, played some guitar, and all keyboard parts on Blackwater Park, Deliverence, and Damnation. He also wrote the lyrics for "Death Whispered A Lullabye." If any of you are unfamiliar with Opeth.

The last two albums deluxe editions came with only DVD-V discs just as The Incident will. I don't think Steven is doing it to rape anyone's wallets. They are producing and selling the DVD-A themselves, I don't believe Roadrunner has anything to do with the DVD-Audio disc. Plus the DVD-A will probably have some extras, like the Time Flies video for instance.

There are some new pics of the deluxe edition to wet the whistle at Roadrunner's UK News section and at The Omega Order's preorder page.

I saw them as an opening act when Satriani and Dream Theater toured back in 2002. I had pit seats and basically got to lean on the stage directly in front of Ty's pedal board. Absolutely amazing band.

Couldnt if I tried. REALLY looking forward to Tuesday, for this and other reasons :D

Im sure itll be as good as FOABP or better. The In Absentia/Deadwing phase should be gone.

Oh hell yea, it makes the album. Lazarus though is one of, if not the worst PT song ever.

$10 this week at Best Buy. A steal!

Been saturation listening to this since last week. Wasn't sure what to make of it after the first listen but I think I've come around to it faster than I did FoaBP. Besides the main piece, the 4 standalone songs are really great too. There's some really LOW tuning stuff on this record too - I'm thinking baritone guitars. Drums and bass kill as usual.

It really has a different flavor than anything else they've done IMO. Pretty much every record is like that - that's what makes them so great.

My deluxe edition came today, but my digital download came yesterday. The album is killer. I prefer disc one, but the second disc is very good.

I agree with your previous comment...this is just a natural progression for the band.

Plan on listen to the 5.1 mix tomorrow, more details to follow.

I picked it up, but have only listened to half of it. At this point, I don't have any opinion.

The title track is killer - love the low guitars. Bonnie the Cat is also really cool - not what I was expecting from a song with that name!

For those of you with iTunes, I see that "Time Flies" is the free video download of the week from the iTunes Store.

Gotta say the CD is a HUGE step down from FoaBP. Its not relly bad but not great either; just there.

I didn't care for this one after the first few spins. But after seeing them perform it live in entirety, and giving it a few more tries, it is really great! It's obviously intended as a continuous piece of music instead of individual tracks grouped onto an album. Standout tracks are Blind House, Draw The Line, Time Flies (obviously), and the title track.

This is the video-guitar Steve Wilson used on "Draw The Line":

Cool!

Yeah my first listen or two I thought it was inferior to FoaBP but now I firmly feel it's the better of the two, but still not quite up there with DW and IA. But that's arguing degrees of greatness. :)

10-25-09, 07:28 PM
Yeah, I suppose even a "bad" PT album is still miles above just about everything else.

That's not to say The Incident is a bad album.
