CD review STEVEN WILSON "Transcience"

Veröffentlicht am 18. Oktober 2016 von Markus W. in Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree, Prog Rock, Rock, News

(*/10) It was, almost to the day, one year ago when Steven Wilson released an album called "Transience" which contained 13 tracks of the master of progressive and soulful rock music. It covered an era between 2003-2015 and at that time the longplayer was released as vinyl only. Now, twelve months later, "Transience" will be published as CD.

In general there isn't that much of a difference which means that you can get a lot of insights in the earlier posted vinyl review. However, there is with "Happiness III" a bonus track on this CD version which acts as an extra treat for the fans. Actually I think that an album like this works best on the good old vinyl but that's not more than my own opinion. It's of course far more handy to have it on CD too.

Anyhow: Excellent music which is a must for Steven Wilson fans and rock music enthusiasts.
