    Looks sweet. Can’t wait.

    Of course, a Blu-ray of the new mix of In Absentia would tide me over nicely in the meantime...

    Always look forward to hearing what he's up to. Busy times....new No-Man, Blackfield 6 in progress, and the next solo album.

    Hopefully not!

    Too much of her.
    I'd like a Steven Wilson album WITHOUT female vocals

    Prog. Good. I could never really get behind the last one.

    Well, I personally like Ninet's contributions, but I am ready for him to move in yet another different direction with the new record.

    Honestly, my only hope for it is that it's again another left turn, and sounds unlike anything else he's done so far. There aren't many artists left that can do a new record, and yet you have no idea what it's going to sound like. If he hooked up all these old synths and did an all-analog new-wave-tinged synthpop record, I'd be 100% here for it.

    All four of his solo albums since he disbanded PT have been excellent, and I have no doubt that this next one will be no worse than really good. SW never disappoints this fan.

    The last album has one or two songs I really dislike but it's the one I turned on when I felt like SW recently after a while of ignorance. It was a lot of fun! And where ever he goes, I hope for Ninet :winkgrin:

    Precisely. This is what kept me interested inPorcupine Tree, and later in Steven’s solo work, while many other acts lose my interest after 3 or 4 albums. What I ask mainly from the next SW album is that it surprise me.

    Does that mean you are not a fan ofInsurgentes? Not that there is anything wrong with disliking an album, I am justlooking for clarification.

    The engl. Prog band Haken released a 80's Pop-Prog album and returned with a heavy Prog album last year. I hope SW will do a Rock or Prog record, but please.... no boring Pop like "To the Bone."

    This is great news, indeed! I’ll most definitely be interested in hearing what he does next. I really loved The Raven That Refused to Sing (And Other Stories) and Hand. Cannot. Erase. I really would love it if he did another Bass Communion album.

    Wish he would gather some great musicians around.

    To The Bone has some songs which for me rank among his best, particularly Nowhere Now and Refuge (even though the latter channels Peter Gabriel a little too much).

    There are many other fine moments but I think Permanenting should have been a non-album single because it upsets the flow (not saying this because I dislike the song) and Same Asylum As Before is rather derivative to the point where it bugs (hypocritical given that I like Refuge so much). I rank To The Bone at the bottom end of the SW solo canon but still would rate it a 7.5-8 out of 10.

    As such, I expect another direction out of the next album, not so much because I want this but because that has been SW's thing for all these years. Looking forward to this, and more no-man, Blackfield, and whatever else his muse wants to share with us.

    I couldn't get into the first two much, but he's been on a roll. I can't wait to see what the new one brings, given how diverse the last three were.

    Hope so, an amazing singer who's suited to what he writes, she takes those songs up to another level

    I was late into the SW and worked myself backwards. He's come on leapes and bounds as a songwriter as those first two suck.
