Steven Wilson: Insurgentes

Since the early 90s, Steven Wilson has been The Man behind the UK’s neo-prog outfit The Porcupine Tree. With Insurgentes he steps out on his own. This is nothing new. He’s recorded under his given name in the past. What is new, however, is how big this record gets. The Porcupine Tree is a powerful band with big ideas, but Insurgentes overwhelms anything they’ve done. Wilson’s voice is as pensive and delicate as ever, but at times — the perfect times — the songs erupt in shimmering waves of guitar noise. It’s as beautiful as it is blistering.
