Andrew's CD Collection and Wishlist

Updated November 27th, 2022


This is a catalogue of albums in my ever-growing music collection. Mostly CDs. Some DVDs. A few are digital. (The last category tends to be albums that are unavailable on CD, like game soundtracks.)

In a few cases i've included gaps in the collection -- albums i want but don't (yet) own. These are distinguished visually as shown in the legend below.

The release date of each album is given in parentheses after the title. If i have (or want) a particular edition then that will also be in parentheses or noted in the text.

George Winston is my favourite pianist. Well, the only pianist i listen to, really.

December and Linus & Lucy are probably his best albums. December is an album of Christmas music, more or less. Linus & Lucy is a tribute to the music of Vince Guaraldi, whom Winston lists as one of his biggest influences.

Dream Theater — A View from the Top of the World (2021)

Masters of Progressive Metal. Between Dad and me we have most of their albums. I've included his albums above.

Their first album, When Dream and Day Unite, is surprisingly good (though a little unpolished). Images and Words in an absolute classic. Falling Into Infinity is considered by the band to be their weakest album, a result of executive meddling. The fallout resulted in the band almost breaking up, firing their keyboardist, and self-producing all their albums since. It has a few good songs though.

Mike Portnoy (the drummer and one of the founding members) left the band after Black Clouds and Silver Linings and was replaced by Mike Mangini.

Three of their albums have been mixed in surround: Systematic Chaos, Dream Theater (2013), and Distance Over Time. Systematic Chaos was only released as a low-bitrate DVD (Dolby AC3). Dream Theater (2013) and Distance Over Time got proper lossless releases. All three were mixed by different people.

Porcupine Tree — Pure Narcotic - Acoustic Session (digital EP) (2012/2020)

Porcupine Tree — Closure / Continuation (Deluxe Digital Album) (2022)

Porcupine Tree's music can be divided into approximately three eras. The first four albums (On the Sunday of Life through Signify) were of the psychedelic and progressive rock genres. The Sky Moves Sideways in particular sounds very Floydian. Both it and Up the Downstair are really good. On the Sunday of Life (not listed) is a little too bizarre for my tastes.

The next two albums, Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun, focus on shorter, more structured songs, drawing more from pop music. Lightbulb Sun is my favourite from this period but Stupid Dream is growing on me. Recordings is a collection of B-sides and unused tracks from the these sessions, including the absolutely stunning track Buying New Soul.

In Absentia takes a sharp turn into metal, and this sound is developed more on the following albums. The highlight here is Fear of a Blank Planet, in my opinion. I don't have Deadwing but it was hit really hard by the loudness war so i think i'll hold out for a remaster.

In Absentia got a deluxe anniversary edition release in February 2020 which includes the surround mix, outtakes, and demos. It also has a new documentary about the making of the album.

Steven Wilson — The Raven that Refused to Sing (and other stories) (CD/DVD-V) (2013)
Steven Wilson — Hand. Cannot. Erase. (CD/DVD-V) (2015)

Steven Wilson is the creative genius behind Porcupine Tree. He has released four very different solo albums. Insurgentes experimented with noise and drone music; Grace For Drowning has more of a jazz foundation, but still with a dark edge to it; Wilson calls The Raven his love letter to '70s progressive rock; and his latest album, Hand Cannot Erase, is a concept album which brings all these elements together with a more modern, electronic sound.

Cover Version is a collection of singles he released throughout 2003-2010.

Porcupine Tree's first live concert video, recorded in Chicago shortly after Deadwing was released (and before Fear of a Blank Planet). It was originally issued on DVD, but was reiussed on Blu-ray in 2017.

Blackfield — Blackfield (2004)
Blackfield — Blackfield II (2007)

Blackfield was a collaboration between Steven Wilson and Aviv Geffen. I think this is where SW's pop songs ended up after Porcupine Tree's Stupid Dream era.

Gavin Harrison — Cheating The Polygraph (CD/DVD-V) (2015) [qq]

Opeth — Sorceress (2CD) (2016)
Opeth — In Cauda Venenum (3CD Expanded Edition) (2019/2022)

Opeth started out as a death metal band, but starting with Heritage all their albums and have had clean vocals (no death growls).

Heritage and Pale Communion were mixed by Steven Wilson, in stereo and surround.

Pale Communion was described by Mikael Åkerfeldt as the "missing link between Damnation and Ghost Reveries", but i think it is more like the missing link between Ghost Reveries and Heritage, or the album that Heritage should have been.

Storm Corrosion (deluxe edition CD/Blu-ray) (2012) [qq]

The long-awaited collaboration between Steven Wilson and Mikael Åkerfeldt. Everyone (including them) expected metal. Instead we got... this. Atmospheric, melodic, frightening. Twisted beautiful.

Amazing album.

Frank Zappa — Waka/Wazoo (Deluxe 4CD + Blu-Ray Audio)

Zappa finally gets a surround mix! Waka/Jawaka and The Grand Wazoo were part of his "big band" phase following Hot Rats and they should be well-suited for surround.

The box set also includes a bunch of alternate takes and some unreleased concert audio. I don't really care about those, but it's the only way to get the surround mix.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross / Jon Batiste — Soul (Soundtrack) (2020)

Trent Reznor (the sole member of Nine Inch Nails) is a fascinating guy. He released two albums (Ghosts and The Slip) under a creative commons license after NIN's record deal expired. He has given away multitracks for three of his albums, and encouraged people to remix them. He was known to frequent Oink's Pink Palace, a music sharing site, before it was shut down.

Ghosts was what caught my attention. It is a bit of an anomaly. Entirely instrumental, lacking much of the aggression of NIN's music, it has more in common with the soundtracks Trent did afterwards. It's a great album; i'd really like my own copy of it.

The Flaming Lips — 7 Skies H3 (2011)
The Flaming Lips — The Terror (2013)
The Flaming Lips — Oczy Mlody (2017) (Used, library case)

I have no idea how they keep making such interesting music. Each album is completely different.

They mixed a trio of albums into surround sound in the mid 2000's (The Soft Bulletin, Yoshimi, and At War With The Mystics). These special editions are all out of print now and highly sought after. The mixes are wild and inventive, with sounds bouncing around all five speakers.

7 Skies H3 (a.k.a. the twenty-four hour song) was composed during their year of experimentation in 2011, following Found a Star on the Ground (the six-hour song). The song is a day-long journey about death, and it is quite an experience to listen to. In addition to being streamed from the band's website, there were 13 physical copies released on hard-drives housed in real human skulls. An hour-long edit was released on CD in 2014.

The Beatles — The White Album (1968)

John Lennon — Plastic Ono Band (1970)

I actually prefer the mono versions of most of the albums. The stereo mixes are too separated. Also, the Beatles weren't really involved in the stereo mixes. Sgt. Pepper in particular sounds way better in mono.

2020 update: there are now surround mixes of Sgt. Peppers, The White Album, and Abbey Road! Mixed by Giles Martin. Only available in big boxed sets unfortunately.

2022 update: Let It Be was remixed in 5.1 surround and Atmos. Revolver was remixed in Atmos but is only available via streaming.
