Agree on PT being up there among the best. Sadly, I only found them after they had disbanded, and then tried to gorge on them all at once, and feel like I missed out on a movement. Still, while not the same, SW solo is right up there.

Is there a Porcupine Tree channel somewhere? Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Santana and presumably many others have their own channels (Sirius and etc.) that plays the studio cuts, live, bootleg and their guesting with other acts. I'll have to investigate if PJ has one. I think it may be very difficult to grow tired of some of their tracks like Arriving Somewhere Not Here, Dark Matter and others. I will check it out.

Perfect timing- not just the incredible beats on this track- also the fit within the time of season, time of day, and the mood.  Cold dreary day in the northeast and sun piercing low lying clouds.  Late autumn day- last remnant of the season, anticipating a long, long cold winter- this song is the perfect fit.  Once again, thanks Bill.

I could hear this song 20 times a day and not get tired of it. A true masterpiece of SW & Company (of many such)

Yup.  In interviews, Wilson alludes to a personality conflict that I suspect drove him away from Porcupine Tree.   

His solo material is increasingly popular; I suspect that his fan base in India and similar places is growing quickly.  I suspect that record companies are increasingly willing to throw generous resources at Wilson.

FWIW, I really enjoy The War on Drugs and believe that Adam Granduciel merits all the success he is currently enjoying.  But I just made a comparison in my head between TWOD and Porcupine Tree (TWOD has lots of post-prog influences) and concluded that Porcupine Tree's music is still far better. 

 
Hiya Deadwing!  Glad to see you back commenting.

Couldn't have said it better myself. This tune gets a 10 from me.

I love how this thing comes in like a sinister version of Roxy Music's "Avalon" then evolves into an incandescent, drum-driven rocker...
