Steven Wilson: Hand Cannot Erase (Day 3 of Album: 365 Mkll)


(Connection to previous album: Steven Wilson is the lead singer of Porcupine Tree)

Steven Wilson has put out a good number of solo records.  As much as I like Porcupine Tree, I didn't really dive into his solo discography with as much eagerness.  This record was different for some reason.  I think it was because I started to listen to The Aristocrats around this time and 2 of them were part of this project.  Also, I had the honor of fostering a blind Boston Terrier named Cleo when this record landed.  The 2nd track, "3 Years Older" was one of the 3 songs she would react to when I played it in the livingroom.  It was a cool sight to see.

The album has some great tracks.  Great band moments.  Not too hip to the girl singing but it works for the story.
