The Review:

Blackfield is the project of Porcupine Tree’s main man, Steven Wilson and a musician Aviv Geffen from Israel. Together they create some modern sounding progressive rock that is heavy on the pop side of the spectrum with very dreamy arrangements that would appeal to fans of Porcupine Tree and modern Brit pop. Mellotron and synths provide much of the musical soundscape, with a nice balance of electric and acoustic guitars to add a rock element. There’s no new ground broken on this debut album but what is featured is a refinement of what has already been covered. The end result is a very pleasant album, full of memorable pop music laced with just the right amount of prog style atmospheres. Basically, the vibe of the album is close to the softer somber Porcupine Tree songs.

The version of the album I’m reviewing is the American version that was released in 2005. Just like the international release late last year, it comes with a bonus CD with 3 more songs including a live track and a video of the “Blackfield” song. There is great potential here for mainstream acceptance. I hope there’s more to come from these two very talented musicians. This is one of the very recommended discs of 2005!
