On several tracks he does polyphonic arrangements with several vocal lines reminiscent of Music/GentleGiant, which is likely a deliberate homage given his love of classic prog. * StoicSpectacles StoicSpectacles: Steven Wilson is a pretty man.

* {{Instrumentals}}: They have several. "Mother & Child Divided" (from the ''Deadwing'' era) is one example; several movements from ''The Incident'' are also examples.

** The CD versions are still fairly compressed, though, most likely due to ExecutiveMeddling. There is audible clipping on the CD versions of ''In Absentia'' and especially ''Deadwing,'' but the mastering on later [=CDs=] is less crude. This is largely averted on the DVD-audio 5.1-channel mixes however, except ''In Absentia'', which, for some reason, is still clipped. (There is still some compression on some channels of the other 5.1 mixes, but not all, and it is not as bad as on the CD versions).

The only 5.1 mix that is clipped is ''In Absentia''). ** Averted with Gavin Harrison's solo album ''Cheating the Polygraph'', which is [=DR12=] and sounds great.

* CerebusSyndrome: Seen most from ''In Absentia'' onwards - while there were always darker themes present here and there in their music ("Radioactive Toy", much of ''Signify''), the earlier music was usually lighter, more whimsical and psychedelic, even when the lyrics were dark (compare the lyrics of "Radioactive Toy" to the almost {{Pink Floyd}}ian arrangement). As time's gone on, both the music and the lyrics have become dark and pessimistic. For a good example, compare "Nine Cats" to "Fear of a Blank Planet". Same could be said about No-Man. Steven Wilsons band together with Tim Bowness. Compare "You Grow More Beautiful" to "Mixtaped"

** ''Deadwing'': While not necessarily one, it does link together elements of a movie script Steven was writing.

Porcupine Tree currently is on hiatus following Music/StevenWilson's interest in continuing his solo career but he, along with his band mates had stated the band isn't dead, but will probably now be a side project as Wilson is focusing more on his solo career. Time will tell when they reunite.
