Porcupine Tree - a real eye opener

I've just been listening to Porcupine Tree following a recommendation by a ex-work colleague. I'd been aware of Steve Wilson previously through his work with Bass Communion, but the Porcupine Tree music couldn't be more different. No sign of the drone, field-recording, type sounds which I'd expected to hear, but great songs and melodies. I'm embarassed to say that I thought it was Guided By Voices when I first heard it. So, not what I expected but I'm very pleased with my new find. I just need to add their recordings to my ever growing wants list - let's hope Santa's feeling generous this year, afterall I have been a very good boy.
