A gloriously dynamic Modernist Pop record, To The Bone is Steven Wilson's fifth offical solo album and his first for Caroline International.

 

Fusing futurist rock and spectral electronics with elegant atmospheres and wild guitars, To The Bone references the hugely ambitious Progressive Pop records that inspired Wilson in his teens (Peter Gabriel’s So, Talk Talk’s Colour of Spring, Tears for Fears Seeds of Love etc). 

 

Lyrically, the album’s eleven tracks encompass the paranoid chaos of the post-truth era and the creeping self-loathing of the technology age, as well as steely fly-on-the-wall observations of the everyday lives of religious fundamentalists and a welcome shot or two of wide-eyed escapism.

 

To The Bone is a high definition snapshot of the disconcerting times we live in.
