Steven Wilson: "The Raven that Refused to Sing" (live)

By Michael J.W. Stickings

It's been some time since I've posted anything from Porcupine Tree or Steven Wilson -- and, if you know me, you know how much I love them (and perhaps also how much I blog about them).

So without further ado, here is the great Steven Wilson, with his incredible band (not PT -- this is a solo effort for which he has put together a new band), performing the title track off his brilliant 2013 album, The Raven that Refused to Sing (and Other Stories), in Neu-Isenberg, Germany, on March 23 of this year.

It's the best song on the album, in my view, and one of the best songs he's ever written. I saw them perform it in Toronto in April and it was truly one of the highlights of what was simply an awesome show. (Back in February, I posted the video for the song.)

  • Great song indeed. It's hard to get too bummed out about PT's inactivity when Steven Wilson's current solo work is so strong. I'm sure PT will eventually return. Until then, this will do nicely.
