I am a huge PT fan. By far they are my favorite "new" progressive rock band, in front The Flower Kings, Spock's Beard... I also admit to liking more their newer albums "Stupid Dream - Lightbulb Sun" than the older stuff, which does not seem to be the case with many traditional prog rock lovers. I was waiting for their latest (sept 2002) offering with great expectation, but also some doubt, because the band had recently signed with a new label. Well I certainly was not disapointed. "In Absentia" is a great cd, in the same vein as the two preceding ones, but I would venture to say maybe even better (time will tell for me). Grab this one as soon as you can, you are in for a treat.
