~  PORCUPINE  TREE  ~  ( voir  Steven Wilson )


Angleterre  -  rock progressif  -  **** 


Voici une des meilleures formations actuelles de la scène rock progressif,
cette réussite est à mettre au crédit de son mentor  
Steven Wilson ,
homme à tout faire doublé d'un producteur extrêmement recherché.
Une musique influencée par  
Pink Floyd , Ozric Tentacles ,
du post-psychédélique sur des rythmes hypnotiques, aux longues envolées lyriques,
ou plus musclées lorsque le besoin s'en fait sentir, une musique planante, complexe,
inspirée, aux influences déliro-spatiales, aux mélodies superbes et émouvantes,
délicatesse, sophistication, trouvailles sonores, gazouillis de synthétiseurs,
guitare floydienne, et voix "allumée"
, mais aussi plus metal progressif
sur les derniers albums, tout un programme !
Il n'en faut pas plus pour faire de  Porcupine Tree  un groupe
indispensable et absolument Incontournable !!!!
