"One of the albums that made a big impact on me was Twelfth Night's Fact and Fiction LP.  Like many of the albums I've grown to love, I wasn't sure I liked it at first, as it didn't have a recognisable classic progressive sound, and there was an almost DIY post-punk aesthetic to it. But eventually it was this more edgy new wave quality that made me love it, and set the band apart from everyone else. I could hear common ground between other bands I was listening to at the time like The Cure, OMD, and Joy Division, combined with the conceptual ambitions of the progressive music I liked so much.  This is all best summed up for me by the album's epic opening track ‘We Are Sane’, which, for me, remains their masterpiece.”  - Steven Wilson
