3 stars And We're Not Here After All released 3 years later after the briliant Metaepitome, this album from 2008 is much less intristing and aswell they change a little bit the direction, musicaly speaking. When I've heared this album I said to mysef, what the heck this is another Porcupine Tree clone album, much moder in sound then the predecesor, less complex arrangements. While the band has it's moments here, specialy on the Madness, the continuation of the opening track, that has some good keybords and guitars and has that Metaepitome feel, the rest of the pieces while are not bad are far from being intristing, at least for me. I do not like this direction band took, maybe they find another target to focus one in this bussines, fans of more cross over prog will enjoy this but to me seems that the band lost the consistancy in song writting. No more interludes between guitar and keys, no more that Floydian space rock that made Metaepitome so great, here we have simply said a moder prog rock album, not far from Riverside in manner of composing. Well I will try and give after some spins 3 stars but not quite there, I was simply shocked in a bad way to here this after the excellent Metaepitome, it was only 3 years for the band to change direction in some way. Not recommended , not really bad either, a forgetable one yes. No highlights here, only tracks no pieces.
