* AcceptableTargets: Technology, organized religion and the music industry.
* CreatorWorship: Many people think that Steven Wilson is a musical god. It probably helps that he is a [[NiceGuy pretty nice guy]]
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: "Linton Samuel Dawson".
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Quite a few examples, but the [[EpicRocking 14-minute]] version of "Even Less" stands out.
* EpicRiff: Several, especially "Occam's Razor".
** The main riff in "Blackest Eyes" has become one of progressive metal's signature riffs.
* FaceOfTheBand: Steven Wilson ''is'' PorcupineTree. On earlier PT records, he actually was, as he was doing every part himself.
** 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.
** This is not even getting into his solo side projects, which aside from the obvious self-titled stuff includes Bass Communion (ambient drone music) and the Incredible Expanding Mindfuck (experimental rock). Productive doesn't even begin to cover it.
* FanDumb: A portion of the Porcupine Tree fanbase has exhibited behaviors of this since the band went on hiatus and Steven Wilson began to focus more on his solo career. The more Wilson put time and effort into that form of output, the more those fans became convinced that the band would be splitting up for good.
* NightmareFuel: Have [[NightmareFuel/PorcupineTree their own page]].
* TearJerker: Have [[TearJerker/PorcupineTree their own page]].
* [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?]]: The lyrics of [[http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/127049/ Nine Cats]]. Full stop.
** As seen below under Word Salad Lyrics, many of the lyrics prior to ''The Sky Moves Sideways'' or arguably ''Signify'' could fall under this. Nine Cats seems almost sensible compared to [[http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/127040/ The Joke's On You]].
