It is a new year and I have not really paid attention to what is coming up. This is not unusual for me as I am more of an impulse purchaser than a planful consumer of music.
The exception is the new release of Steven Wilson’s new album coming this month. Titled Four and a Half it is seen by him as not being a real album but a collection of bits that never made it onto other albums solo and Porcupine Tree.
It is the first and may be the only album I pre-order this year and I am unreasonably anticipating it as Wilson is one of my favorites right now.
