I heard this the first time on a progressive rock station, and was instantly drawn to their powerful chops and great hooks, but I was at first put off by the abrupt changes to melodic singing and mellow grooves in the same songs, but after feeling compelled to listen to the songs a few more times, I began to get hooked.

So give it a few listens and see if you wind up enjoying it as much as I did. The changes are bizarre, but they grow on you and give this band a definite style of their own.

This song is track 1 from Porcupine Tree's "In Absentia." The album is a masterpiece by what I consider perhaps the greatest prog/metal band of our generation. Steven Wilson never ceases to amaze, and Blackest Eyes is no exception. The song clocks in at a little under 4 and a half minutes, but manages to cover such a wide territory of sounds ranging from brutal heavy guitars, to pop inflected choruses, and lush acoustic passages. If you haven't checked out Porcupine Tree, I would recommend Blackest Eyes as a great starting point. It's a killer song!

Had this song on my old iPod and heard it as "fill in" music while waiting for a local band to take the stage. "Hmmmm....this sounds familiar!" So I "Shazam"d it and now its on my Cloud. Downloaded the whole album.
