Well, just like Opeth (whose latest release “Sorceress” is their most mainstream-sounding album to date), Steven Wilson is already petered out too, no doubt. Here is a brief description of his new outing: “From futurist rock and spectral electronics to hyper-space ambience and dizzying guitars, the new Steven Wilson album, “To The Bone” (11 tracks), is hat-tip to the ambitious progressive pop records of his youth (think Peter Gabriel’s “So”, Talk-Talk’s “Colour of Spring” and Tears For Fears’ “Seeds of Love”)”. Alas, inspiration is as transient as everything in this world… Genre: Progressive Rock/Pop. ‘Line-up’: Steven Wilson: vocals, instruments, programming, electronics; with: Ninet Tayeb: vocals (3, 7). Release date: August 18, 2017. Label: Caroline International. Format: CD, vinyl, digital, Blu-Ray.
