The shortest review for Steven Wilson’s new album “To The Bone” you’ll find on the internet

Steven Wilson - To The BoneI could write a 24 km long review about Steven Wilson’s new album “To The Bone”, which I’m lucky enough to have a promo copy of. I’ll keep my review as long as necessary. Here’s what I have to say:

It’s a beautiful album containing some of the best song-writing Steven has ever done. The album makes sense to listen to as an album, individual tracks are still amazing but the music only stands out as a whole, and then it’s a mind-blowing work.

Elegy For The Living

“Elegy For The Living” is the title of my forthcoming new album. This page will be the feature page for the album when it’s released, which will most probably happen in December 2017 spring 2018 summer 2018.

I’m sorry for the delay on the release. There are certain stages of the final production that require updated technology that needs to get set up and running. New gear has arrived! I started finishing the album, to be released early summer 2018!
