    The Incident by Porcupine Tree is a must hear rock music album

    Porcupine Tree is a rock music group geared towards people who are musicians, and people who enjoy cream of the crop prog experimental rock music. They are so good at what they do that Neil Peart, a drummer and legend for Rush a rock music group that formed in 1968 and is still writing new songs in 2010, spoke with Steven Wilson founder of Porcupine Tree and was so inspired by The Incident, that Neil and Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson might come out with new songs heavily inspired by The Incident, because rock musicians network. Neil Peart is friends with the guitarist of Porcupine Tree and wrote a brief statement when Porcupine Tree's Deadwing album was put out, saying that Gavin Harrison is an elegant drummer. As I have been a drummer since age 2 starting with jazz legend the late Gene Krupa, I am so impressed with Gavin Harrison's drumming. He is so stylish with drums and cymbals, and plays so well that Neil Peart and Gavin might technically be 2 of some of the best drummers in rock music right now - only in my opinion. The Incident is a story made up about a car accident and a spiritualism non-Bible based idea of what happens when that person has lost their life in the car. Now granted, there is a lyric about church in the lyrics, but Steven Wilson seemed to gravitate away from the Bible, into the worlds of spiritualism, the paranormal and free love and sexuality as now the ways of the world as opposed to Strict Christianity. It's the rebelliousness of Steven's work that makes this album so exceptional. The songwriting is top notch, they should fill stadiums of 50,000 people like Pink Floyd did live - not for the money they could make, but because they are that good - they play live in places on this earth you wouldn't think a rock music group would draw a crowd, but they are different yet so great live. The sound they get is electric, and live their visuals are very psychedelic and fast paced, just like their work - their music and lyrics. Dare I say Steven Wilson may be a popular musical genius, and Gavin Harrison such a hard working naturally gifted by God drummer, in a band formed by Steven Wilson who was inspired by Pink Floyd and Donna Summer as a teenager, and as Porcupine Tree is never played on rock radio ever, will go down with Rush as one of the most impressive rock music groups in the entire world history of popular music and lyrics, thoughts and ideas and art.
