Steven Wilson - Insurgentes (2008)

You may know Steven Wilson as the frontman of British prog-rock band Porcupine Tree. This is his first solo album released under his own name, and it's pretty damn good. In fact, it's one of my top albums of 2008. At times, the music sounds like a darker, more brooding Porcupine Tree, which shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Wilson has a knack for fusing a variety of genres into an easily digestible yet highly listenable package, so there's a little bit of everything on "Insurgentes": drone, prog-rock, industrial, noise...I'm even tempted to mention post rock. Check it out.
