We all have those moments in songs that just speak to us. You know what I’m talking about, right? It’s that part of the song that you’re blasting in the car with a several of your friends and you make them all shut up so you can share that one special moment with them. Usually, it ends up with everyone staring at you, wondering what the hell you’re so excited about.
You know what? Screw ‘em. You know what’s so special. You know what’s going on. And you’re gonna scroll back to hear that part again, whether they like it or not.
So, join me below as I share 10 Moments In Songs That I Just Love! READ MORE
Porcupine Tree is easily in my top three favorite bands. I remember buying ‘In Absentia‘ and playing ‘Trains‘ around 20 times before I went to the next track because it was, and still is, such an amazing and beautiful track. So imagine my surprise and delight when I saw a video of 40 YouTube users playing ‘Trains‘ mashed together into one cohesive piece. Just like Eric Whitacre’s YouTube Choir, these people come from all over the world. Enjoy below.
Okay, so it’s been quite a bit since I’ve done a Retro Review but I’ve been thinking of how I wanted to approach this. So I decided, I’ll do one at the end of each month but I’ll leave it to YOU, the readers, to decide what album to do next. To suggest an album, simply leave a comment below with what you’d like me to review. The only guideline is that the album has to be at least 10 years old. I know that my first Retro Review (Porcupine Tree’s In Absentia) doesn’t fit that guideline, but hey, I’m starting this anew. So from here on out, with each Retro Review, leave a comment, I’ll pick an album at random and that will be the next month’s review. But for now, on to ‘Slaughter of the Soul’.
While on tour for their album, ‘The Incident’, I had a chance to catch up with Colin Edwin, bassist of British prog-rock band Porcupine Tree. We sat down to discuss how the tour is going, what were some funny stories that happened on tour, how the various members side projects are going and what some of Colin’s favorite horror movies are. Check the interview below and let me know what you think!
