Holy cow… I got (Porcupine Tree, No-man, Blackfield frontman) Steven Wilson‘s double-disc+dvd uber-deluxe edition of his first solo album Insurgentes in the mail today.  Holy cow.  Like, seriously… wow.  Gorgeous artwork.  Utterly gorgeous.  If most albums are just normal, this one is a Hyperbole Department’s Executive Management.  Check out http://www.swhq.co.uk/ for a trailer or two for the album.  The limited edition only had 3,000 pressings (for the 2CD/1DVD version) and 1,000 pressings for the (2CD/1DVD/vinyl version).  Alas, the normal album will be well worth the cover price as well (and out in Feb 2009 on KScope)… Steven Wilson is one artist in the rock scene that truly excites me lately.

I also got a notification for “not enough postage” on the Sigur Rós uber-deluxe edition of Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.  Gotta pick that up at the post office tomorrow and bring my $3.28 to resolve the postal inequity.

I’ll post reviews with pics over the weekend, while I’m chillin’ the empty cavities where my wisdom teeth used to be.
