Added DiffLines:

* FandomRivalry: A small one. For some reason some Porcupine Tree fans really like ripping on Music/{{Radiohead}}, considering them to be an inferior, whinier Porcupine Tree.

** With Music/{{Opeth}} as well, down to many fans jokingly [[HoYay shipping]] Mikael Akerfeldt and Steven Wilson.



* SoOkayItsAverage: The general consensus believes ''The Incident'' is this, feeling it's a weak album and doesn't really stand out from all the other releases (other than it being a fifty-five minute piece cut into fourteen parts).

* SoOkayItsAverage: The general consensus believes ''The Incident'' is this, feeling it's a weak album and doesn't really stand out from all the other releases (other than it being a fifty-five minute piece cut into fourteen parts). It does have its fans though, with others considering it to have some of the band's best songs in spite of a large number of filler tracks ("Time Flies" is especially notable here).


Added DiffLines:

** "Trains" and "Time Flies" capture the feeling of nostalgia absolutely perfectly.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Anvilicious}}: ''Fear of a Blank Planet'' isn't subtle at all about its message of how modern society alienates and isolates people. Of course, most fans see it as SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.

* BrokenBase: Wilson's solo career and his friendship with [[Music/{{Opeth}} Mikael Akerfeldt]] seems to be this for fans, due to some feeling betrayed Wilson put Porcupine Tree on hold for his solo career and his influence on Music/{{Opeth}} [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks changed their music]], Ironically since Wilson helped produce ''Blackwater Park'' and the beloved ''Damnation''.

* FaceOfTheBand: Steven Wilson ''is'' PorcupineTree. On earlier PT records, he actually was, as he was doing every part himself.

* FriendlyFandoms: With {{Music/Muse}}. It helps that both bands are pop-sensible Prog-rock bands whose sound covers plenty of bases.

** He's also a regular in several other bands like Blackfield and No-Man, has performed on albums by Music/DreamTheater, {{Opeth}} and Pendulum, just to name a few. Productive guy.

* MagnumOpus: ''In Absentia'', arguably ''Fear of a Blank Planet''.
** Older work will usually turn to ''Stupid Dream''.

** "Voyage 34" deserves a mention for being one of the longest singles ever released (about 30 minutes).



* CrowningMomentOfFunny: "Linton Samuel Dawson". It sounds like it's being sung by a [[Film/DespicableMe Minion]].
