B is the kind of thing prog teenagers used to listen to in the early 70's. It now sounds like everything prog haters love to hate.

I'm getting into this Steven Wilson album; possibly the best thing he's done for a long time.

I enjoyed both but one was more robust than the other:

I'm expecting every other list to contain a track from that Stephen Wilson album. It is very good of course but I'm seeing it as rather a safe choice.

Polyphony were completely unknown to me. They ought to be a bit too close to ELP territory for me but tonight I enjoyed it a LOT, evidently I'm in that sort of mood. So thank you B for introducing me to it.

Pretty much exactly my thoughts. I played the Polyphony last night before bed and thought it very close to ELP territory but found myself enjoying it despite this. The song section was a nice contrast to the frenetic instrumental part.

I've only had the Steve Wilson album for a week and have played it constantly. My favourite album of his since the first Blackfield one. It is a safe choice but I'm going to have to vote for it. The animation is nice too.

B

Almost paradoxically, for me the Polyphony track if the new and interesting choice.

I think i like the Steve Wilson tune a bit more here. The Polyphony was nice, but didn't grab me enough.

I'd never heard of Polyphony before and whilst I enjoyed the music, I thought they were basically reworking Tarkus: I was going to say that one ELP was more than enough, but remembered that PFM had covered this ground pretty comprehensively, as well. This was the first I had heard musically of Steven Wilson, and, understated though it was, I thought it was pretty magnificent, even if I was reminded of Talk Talk in this case. Saying that, though, I think I would buy the album this is from.

At a bit of a loss to hear what others do in the Steve Wilson. It seems this nu-prog stuff is a little boring.

B isn't great but it's rude.

if someone had blindfolded me and clicked Play on B, i would've guessed it to be ELP, easily... and that's a good thing, i love ELP and this track was enjoyable...

but if i sat here and described everything i was feeling and thinking as i watched/listened to A, and gave an honest assessment of how it moved me, i'm sure my words would be a gross overstatement... i'm not familiar with Steve Wilson at all, so this is my introduction... it reminded me so much of Radiohead, and i'm a big fan of Radiohead/Thom Yorke.... the animation and artwork are fantastic, and the song and the lyrics held me captivated the whole time... i was looking forward to each scene, each line, to learn more about the character(s) and story.... it just really takes the prize, hands down...

i want to thank whomever posted this entry... you have given me a gift, and i'm a new fan based on only one track, because i think it's safe to say that if the rest of his body of work is anything like this, even to a lesser degree, i anticipate having a nice time discovering it.... thank you!!

What's all this Steve business?

It's Steven people, Steven!

1st time I heard the Raven track it was on YouTube with the video. It's very strong visually but I actually didn't particularly enjoy it - I just don't like the whole video thing unless it's a band playing the music.

I have my own imagination and I don't want someone else putting theirs into my brain thank you very much.

Having got the album now, it was so so much better hearing it without pictures invading my head. Love it.

Also enjoyed the Polyphony, so thanks whoever posted that up as I'd never heard of them before.

But A it is.

B is an interesting, even great forgotten period piece, but

A is just perfect.
