The music works very well together.
M. Mazzi
Well, I really wanted to purchase this CD as I am a Blackfield (more Steven Wilson) fan but the second song really turned me off "Go To Hell".
A. Dorsey
I'm not looking for epic 10 minute PT tunes but most of the songs clock in under 4 minutes and are quite bland and boring.

Steve Wilson continues an incredible string of brilliant albums, this time in his teaming with Aviv Geffin as Blackfield. The third Blackfield cd "Welcome to My DNA" is an excellent mix of two different but talented musicians and just might be their best and most realized group of songs. Mostly written by Geffin, the songs are elevated by Wilson's sound, vision and production talents. There are elements of progressive sounds mixed with orchestral strings that take simpler songs of melancholy and angst and elevate them into complex, compelling and thrilling productions: try "Dissolving With the Night" which intensifies in mood and tension, like the high points of a Hitchcock movie. The Steve Wilson penned "Waving" is a standout as is the incredible "Blood". "Blood", which I understand is what the band is opening with on tour, is a tour de force and ends with the Beach Boy like harmonies which Wilson agains uses beautifully as he has in many Porcupine Tree songs. Collectively each track is intersting, hook laden and strong but I cannot help thinking that these songs are going to be used as movie soundtracks in time. Yes, Geffin's voice takes some getting used to but teamed with the Wilson leads and magical harmonies, it works. More mellow than Porcupine Tree, Blackfield is a great vehicle for Steve Wilson to record shorter, more compact songs while never compromising the integrity of the music and challenging the listner.

Steve Wilson has created a remarkable catalog of music that has thrilled me for the past twenty years or so. "Welcome to my DNA" nestles nicely into that collection and will be enjoyed for a long time. Yessir, he has done it again.

I have been awaiting "Welcome to my DNA" for a very long time now, and to tell you the truth, I am disappointed. I have given this album repeated spins and it is not clicking with me like Blackfield's first two albums did. That said, there are some really good tracks here (Oxygen, Zigota, On the Plane) and also Blackfield's worst song (Go To Hell - seriously, is this a joke track or what?) Aviv Geffen is the real star of this album; Steven sounds uninspired.

I know I will get a lot of unhelpful votes for this review, but, truth be told, this is a major misstep for Steven Wilson and Blackfield.

I will join in with the others who claim "Go to Hell" is the WORST track......so bad it should not have been included....even as a B-side....so juvenile. I was shocked when they did this live in NYC on the tour. I'm not slamming this release but compared to the other two, this is weak tea. On the other hand, the tour was BRILLIANT! Loud and clear with a good selection of old and new. The band is so great live. Don't let this one sway you from future releases. KEEP THE FAITH. (You can't always hit a homerun). By the way......this CD does not grow on you. The good tracks are good, the bad are....well........whatever.

welcome to my dna.... i guess i had bigger expectations for the long awaited blackfield's third album.
i was looking for something as good as blackfield 1 and 2 ....it didnt really happen.
glass house, far away, zigota and oxygen, make the cut, go to hell its one of the worst songs i ever heard.
far away its a beautiful minimalistic song with a great strings arrengment.
and also most of the song are very short.

After years and years of sustained brilliance, Steven Wilson made a boring album.

The other Blackfield CDs had lots of interesting songs: Blackfield, Glow, Lullaby, Pain, Cloudy Now, Perfect World, Once, Christenings, Epidemic, End of the World...

But this one? Most of the songs are drowsy. Some are monotonous to the point of irritation. Some just puerile.

Blood and Oxygen come closest to standing out.

I have to admit, this CD did not have the same impact as their two previous releases. But, it's been slowly simmering in my brain after numerous playbacks in the car. The music works very well together. Blends perfectly. And I just saw this band LIVE in Milan... gives this CD a completely different feel after a live performance, which was, as always SPECTACULAR !!! My advice to Blackfield fans: give this CD the time it deserves!!!!

Received ours about 2 weeks ago, and I must say it is right up there with its predecessors. Actually, I wasn't expecting anything more or less from WTMD.
There's a well-blended mixture of genius arrangements, both musically and vocally. I don't have a favorite or least favorite track, for it's all good,
just the way I felt with Blackfield and Blackfield II.

There's a lot of mellotron and the drums are sounding less technical and more fluid. In fact, the whole arrangement symphonically is outstanding!
I'm just sorry the album lands so short of an hour. It's not even 50 minutes long. That's one thing where comparing the 3 in repetitive similarity goes.

From what I heard in reviews outside of amazon, I was actually expecting the album to be quite
atrocious, in a boring fashion, meaning perhaps nothing new at all, or stuff we wouldn't want to hear from the guys. Aviv obviously collaborated a lot more,
vocally this time, which is good. I'm not 100% keen on the tone of his wavering voice, but it's still genuninely good s**t!!!

Considering the heavyier direction Porcupine Tree has gone since 2002, I was worried WTMD would be far heavier rather than stale, as a couple of non-amazon reviewers
said about the album. It's the last time I'll listen to anyone's comments before listening to THE ALBUM for myself.
As for the packaging, the digi-book is lovely. So are the photos. It's a well put together package through and through, and I highly recommend WTMD to
any music lover both old and young.
