Drive Home [CD/DVD Audio Bonus]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
"Drive Home" is one of the notable cuts on Steven Wilson's brilliant The Raven That Refused to Sing and Other Stories, an album that redefined prog for the 21st century. The song's gorgeous meld of Pink Floyd's nocturnal atmospherics, the Moody Blues' melodic majesty, sprawling guitar solos, and Alan Parsons' crystalline production made it a standout track. This audio and video collection uses the single edit as its title track and leadoff. The set also includes an orchestral version of "The Raven That Refused to Sing" and the song "The Birthday Party" (which was previously only featured on the deluxe book edition of the Raven album).

"Drive Home" is one of the notable cuts on Steven Wilson's brilliant The Raven That Refused to Sing and Other Stories, an album that redefined prog for the 21st century. The song's gorgeous meld of Pink Floyd's nocturnal atmospherics, the Moody Blues' melodic majesty, sprawling guitar solos, and Alan Parsons' crystalline production made it a standout track. This audio and video collection uses the single edit as its title track and leadoff. The set also includes an orchestral version of "The Raven That Refused to Sing" and the song "The Birthday Party" (which was previously only featured on the deluxe book edition of the Raven album). "The Holy Drinker," "Insurgentes," "The Watchmaker," and a live "Raven..." are all killer readings taken from a concert in Frankfurt. The DVD in the set includes Jess Cope-directed videos for "Drive Home" and "The Raven...," the visuals of the Frankfurt concert of the aforementioned tracks, and 96/24 stereo and 5.1 Surround mixes of "The Birthday Party" and the orchestral "The Raven...." Of course, what makes the live footage so special is the interaction of the bandmembers -- Wilson on guitar and vocals, woodwind/multi-instrumentalist Theo Travis, keyboardist Adam Holzman, bass and stick player Nick Beggs, drummer Marco Minnemann, and guitarist Guthrie Govan -- as they take these tunes far outside their studio boundaries. While Drive Home is admittedly for hardcore Wilson fans only, the video disc is alone worth the price of admission.
