    PT/C/C

    Brilliant. Wondering how the touring bass player is going to touch this painting

    'Quite good'? Simply astonishing! And what's with the angled frets and pickups? - not seen a guitar like that before.

    Waiting for my deluxe box set...yeah I'm a sucker for that shit. Only listened to Harridan because I wanted to sit down with the whole thing. If Paulie likes it chances are I will too

    ...and Nate is an amazing bass player. Loved his work on Devin Townsend's Empath and was lucky to see that line-up just before the lockdown

    Dunno about the pickups, but the angle on the frets (fanned frets) are for better intonation, giving each string a fret scale that best suits it, as the lower you go, the longer the scale the string ideally requires.

    If you want to go batshit crazy and give each note on the fretboard the exact scale it needs to be purely in tune, there's always true temperament necks. I totally want to try one of these:

    Hats OFF, this young dude is quite simply amazing!

    BTW - Heard the new PT, liked it very much. It is in the vein of Fear of a blank planet and even better, great stuff by Steven, Gavin and Richard!

    Listened to the whole album. I like the more melancholy songs that remind me of Signify era PT.

    It's still growing on me, I don't think it will be anywhere near my fave PT album at all but I'm enjoying it. Rats Return is a killer riff!

    Yes good album. However I think I'm good with PT at this point, I'd like to see SW go somewhere he's never gone to, musically speaking.

    Does the extra hand at the end of video come with the guitar?

    I can hear it now. Melancholy and atmospheric renditions of Nothin' But A Good Time and Shout At The Devil.

    I keep going back to Rats Return. Some serious riffage there!

    Been listening to the 10 tracks (3 bonus) as a whole at least 4 times now and I'm fairly impressed. Nothing groundbreaking here, but still IMO it's better than The Incident, and more reminiscent of In Absentia. Dead Wing and Fear Of A Blank Planet, which is not a bad thing. And I will be seeing them in concert in September, and I'm certain that all of these new songs will empress even more. Oh and let me say this...I'm most impressed at SW's bass playing. He's REALLY good! Gavin has chosen the musicians to replace Colin and John on stage, so I'm also certain that the stage show will be just as great as the past. And has anyone seen this yet? It's worth the watch and listen:

    Day dawns dark...it now numbers infinity.

    How did you guys get a copy so early? I'm doing shipping between the UK and Canada (confirmed last week) but nothing yet!! I can't wait to receive this baby.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    tbh i find it a disappointment. the only songs i think work or are new is some of Rats Return, Herd Culling, Walk The Plank, and Chimera's Wreck's brush work. Dignity's main riff reminds me of Rush's Main Monkey Business' opening riffs...and the rest just, to my ears, aren't interesting or well-written enough. maybe it'll grow on me hopefully...otherwise these'll all be hard to sit through live when i'd rather hear their other songs.
