The Top Ten
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.
Most incredible guitar solo ever
Absolutely stunning heartwrenching song with the most tear inducing guitar solo ever( even better than Comfortably Numb or Parissienne Walkways.
A song with a message of loss,and hope.
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.
One of my favourite songs of all time. - edmasson
Amazing song. probably his best
This atmospheric progressive masterpiece should be 1 in my opinion
Damn! What an amazing song!
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.
I voted for Luminol a bit of time ago, but that was when I never listened to this song.
Luminol has way too much influence of Early Prog in it, it sounds copied and like I have heard it before. The most original, amazing song of Wilson's, however, is obviously The Raven that Refused to Sing.
The orchestra, the piano, melody, vocals, lyrics, everything is perfect, and everything in the song before the 5 and a 1/2 minute mark just builds up to the part after the 5 and a half minute mark, where the orchestra, piano, everything shines, extremely, extremely brightly.
I absolutely love this song right n0w, really wish there was some piano tab for it. - Metalfan2112
A beautiful piano ballad complimented by Steven Wilson's soft and emotional vocals that builds to a crescendo, everything from the string arrangements to the lyrics and story are amazing and so so touching
Makes me cryV 2 Comments
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.
Better than Arriving Somewhere for sure. Insane song that definitely is too low, even for #6.
Epic song!V 1 Comment
The whole album is absolutely sublime and well constructed. This "opening" song sets the standard for the quality that follows.
One of my favourite songs of all time! This song describes the real pain of loss. The last few lines hit me every time. Great song!
The most beautifully painfully haunting masterpiece in history of music. Steven Wilson at his best. Watch the official music video of the song, it's the saddest/most beautiful thing you'll ever witness.
One of the best songs of 2015. - Caleb9000
Don't ever let go, try to let go.. haunting.
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.
To be honest this whole album is pretty good but I think this is the best Steven Wilson song - Metalfan2112
Mind-blowing song, it has all the things that should be in a great great song!
Flute solo gives me goosebumps every time.V 1 Comment
I'm more in love with the beauty of progressive rock, so I prefer this
This can't be here in this list. It's beautiful.
Very good song..
That simple but deep lyrics.. tears the heart.
The only reason this song might be this low on the list is because its not long enough... we are left wanting more...
i mean how else can u explain it...
"...Hey brother, I feel I’m living in parentheses
And I've got trouble with the bills
Do the kids remember me?
Well I got gifts for them
And for you more sorrow
But I’m feeling kind of drowsy now
So I’ll finish this tomorrow..."
Its just so beautiful...
One of the best songs of Steven Wilson. Got stuck in my head
I grew up listening to PT, Backfield and his solo work. I always loved his music for its complexity but this particular song though seems simple but is actually not. Love the feel of this song!
This should be in top 3
One of my favorite songs...great
One of my favourite instrumentals
Awesome song should be on the top 10 list
Love this song!
Perfect uplifting song!
