Steven Wil­son

Grace For Drown­ing 2011

Classic Rock - - Buyer’s Guide -

Of­ten over shad­owed in Wil­son’s cat­a­logue by the iconic likes of The Raven, his sec­ond solo al­bum is ac­tu­ally stuffed full of re­sound­ing win­ners. All that gnarly jazz, prog and in­dus­trial noise he’d been qui­etly ab­sorb­ing for years is stirred into the com­pelling, co­he­sive frame­works of In­dex, Rader II, Re­main­der The Black Dog and more. And while his lat­est solo record To The

Bone might have been said to be his most poppy ven­ture, it’s on Grace For Drown­ing, in the exquisitely melodic heart­break of De­form To Form A Star and Post­card, that we see the seeds of Wil­son’s pop prow­ess re­ally start to flour­ish.
