Steven Wilson's supremely ambitious third album, The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories), consists of 6 remarkable songs (3 of which are over 10 minutes long).
The current SW band, which comprises some of the world's most respected musicians (guitarist Guthrie Govan, bassist Nick Beggs, drummer Marco Minnemann, saxophonist/flautist Theo Travis and keyboard player Adam Holzman), has taken Steven's music into new and unexpected directions.
Lyrically based on stories of the supernatural, the album was recorded and engineered in Los Angeles by legendary producer/engineer Alan Parsons.
The limited 2 disc edition of the album features the stereo mix of the album on CD plus a DVD-V with 96/24 Stereo LPCM files, plus 2 x 5.1 mixes of album (DTS 96/24 5.1 surround & Dolby AC3 5.1 surround).
The DVD-V also features an art gallery Art Gallery (images by Hajo Mueller), Photo Gallery (photographs by Lass Hoile) and a studio Documentary (filmed and edited by Lasse Hoile).
This 2 disc edition is packaged in a deluxe rigid digibook.
