* 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.
* 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]].
