Your Preferred PT "Era"?

The question is simple (though perhaps difficult to answer), what experimental phase of Porcupine Tree have you most enjoyed thus far? Smiley
 
Forgive me if this has been done before.

I can't vote. I consider Signify - Recordings one era.

You never vote anyway! Grin I count Recordings as the LS - SD era, unless that's what you meant.

Well, to me Signify also kind of belongs there. Though in a way the album alone was an era in itself. Also, to me In Absentia has much more in common with SD and LBS, than it has with FoaBP. Anyway, what do you mean that I never vote?

My initial instinct was to place In Absentia in the "middle" but I wouldn't say it's pop either. I'd say it's their turning point into the sound we know as Porcupine Tree today, thus current metal era.

I found this quite hard, but I eventually voted for the early period, mainly because I find this to be the most uniquely PT-ish.
 
This was hard, because my favourite album (FOABP) comes from the latest period, and some of their most tuneful - and certainly most emotional - stuff comes from the "Stupid Lightbulb" era. The tracks that tipped the balance for me were It Will Rain for a Million Years, Synesthesia and Burning Sky.

I voted for the current era, as FOABP belongs to it, and that one is my favorite album as well. IA and Deadwing are both really strong, too. I feel that the current era encompasses some of the early "psychedelic" stuff, some of the SD / LS songwriting-based approach, and some metal. It has little bit of everything.  
 
The first era would come in at 2nd for me, followed VERY closely by the SD / LS era.

But then you wouldn't have to think about it. Tongue

I went with the current metal era. Although I do really love LBS, Stupid Dream and Recordings. That made it a hard choice!

It's probably a good sign that although one option is clearly in the lead, all three eras are getting significant numbers of votes.

Hmm see as years go by, my vote for this would change. For some odd reason, I have an exceptional affinity for Option #1 lately, though overall I'd probably vote #3.

I go back and forth between 1 and 3. Signify is probably my favorite album right now, but I adore the "metal" era as well.
