The Top TenXW

1Deform to Form a Star

A song that, when it plays, I have to stop whatever I'm doing and just listen to it. Its placement within the album is well done - the first vocals in ten minutes!, its like the tracks before were just building to this masterpiece.

The story of this song is so similar to my recent physical and mental disaster! I appreciate Steven for his spiritual mind!

Amazing solo at the end.. Just that.. Yeah..
Moving as hell.. And just part of a great album.. Guthrie has outdone himself.. And steven wilson too.. So difficult to choose from this list.


This atmospheric progressive masterpiece should be 1 in my opinion

4The Raven That Refused to Sing

I am a massive Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson fan. I have everything single release, and I know every single song. But I think that this is his pinnacle, his masterpiece of emotional power. The song just hits me, every single time. It is marvelously simple but every single note has it's place. The instrumentation is perfect. The performances are perfect. This song is perfect.

The whole album is absolutely sublime and well constructed. This "opening" song sets the standard for the quality that follows.


This can't be happening! Those who don't believe me just listen to it one time... Better than drive home or Russia on ice or arriving somewhere but not here

Gives me chills every time, I cannot think of many other 13 minute songs that never get even slightly boring at times, what a journey this song is.

The Contenders

11Veneno Para Las Hadas
13The Watchmaker

Fully expected to see this song at #1. The most amazing 12 minute prog masterpiece, the best prog song (other than Arriving Somewhere) to be released since the 70s. Not unlike Genesis, it starts melodic and beautiful and builds up to a hard rock type sound.

Mind-blowing song, it has all the things that should be in a great great song!

Definitely one of the masterpieces...
