Porcupine Tree: Arriving Somewhere (Snapper) Guitarist and studio whiz Steve Wilson has hit on a blissful sound that appeals equally to head and heart: heavy doses of sinewy power chords, merged with gentle melodies and haunting lyrical motifs,
more than a little reminiscent of vintage Pink Floyd. This two-disc video, recorded during last year’s Deadwing tour, rewards the patient and open-minded with snap-tight musicianship and first-rate, post-Genesis prog arrangements.
SCENE STEALER: Wilson’s work is bolstered onstage by second guitarist John Wesley, who adds backing vocals, a backbone of riffing, and even a few sweet solos.
