Steven Wilson - To The Bone
To The BoneåÊis Steven Wilson's expansive, brilliant fifth album. A gloriously dynamic modernist pop record as imagined by the UK‰۪s biggest underground artist. Fusing driving futurist rock and spectral electronics to elegiac hyper-space ambience and dizzying, squalling guitars,åÊTo The BoneåÊis Steven Wilson‰۪s hat-tip to the hugely ambitious progressive pop records of his youth (think Peter Gabriel‰۪såÊSo, Talk Talk‰۪såÊColour of Spring, Tears for FearsåÊSeeds of Love). Lyrically, the album‰۪s eleven tracks veer from the paranoid chaos of the post-truth era and the creeping self-loathing of the technology age to steely fly-on-the-wall observations of the everyday lives of religious fundamentalists with a welcome shot or two of wide-eyed escapism. Sonically and melodically stunning,åÊTo The BoneåÊis a high definition snapshot of the disconcerting times we live in.
