Started off with this one..
Another thread, on another forum led me to replay this CD again. As much as I've enjoyed Porcupine Tree over the years I just cannot take to this one at all.
Pulled out my favourite Jackie Leven CD to erase The Incident from my mind..
Now thats better

Another CD that's not been played for a while..
Opening track, "Love is the Drug", can't think of many better basslines.
I'm not sure about it. I think it has some strong tracks but it doesn't really make me want to listen to it too often. I always go slightly against the tide with Marillion anyway - my favourite albums of the h era are 'This Strange Engine' and 'Seasons End'. I think it is very decent but I've seen people describing it as the best album of 2012 and I think that is possibly going a bit far.
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
hey dib thanks for this..... what a great sound and find
I've been a fan of Jackie Leven for 20 years and have most of his albums. Sadly he passed away last year, but left a great body of work behind. He had a very eventful life to say the least, and this was his first solo album from about 1992 after overcoming heroin addiction and a near fatal assault a few years previously. A larger than life character especially on stage, his live shows were great fun. A fabulous raconteur as well as singer.

Don't think much to this, anyone else like it?
Ah cheers for the reply, yeah I really like Slash and friends, I have Slash's first album and really like it but just don't get on with this one. Can't believe you saw them at Download - must have been amazing. I will be interested to hear what you think of this one when you hear. Cheers for that.
On a slightly different note Norwich not doing to well at present - unfortunately. Hoping we will pick up soon.
Agree, this is a bit so so compared to the last studio album.
Made in Stoke however is what is should be, live n loud!
Saw them at download too in 2010, was there mainly for the DC. I loved seeing Saxon again too!
