Only kidding. Sorry.

But hey, the Drude seems to be one of the few credible established artists left who hasn’t yet surrendered their back catalogue to the antiseptic sound of Steven Wilson. Maybe it’s only a matter of time. After his soulless clean up jobs on ‘Benefit’, ‘Grey & Pink’ and ‘Red’ (amongst countless other already fine records I love) I dread the day I get that pre-release Burning Shed email...

I know there are a lot of Porcupine Tree fans here and I don’t mean to provoke or offend them. But I really wish that Steven Wilson would concentrate on his own (already impressively prolific) output instead. Within his own musical zone, he’s masterful. Let loose on other artists’ stuff, he leaves me cold. Ice cold. Akin to me, in fact, to laminating the Mona Lisa with sticky back plastic. It’s got to the stage that his name actively puts me off buying things I’d otherwise be keen to acquire: the imminent Crimson ‘70 - ‘72 box and Rush’s ‘Farewell To Kings’, for example. And don’t even mention the long awaited XTC remasters to me.

IMHO of course.
