* AcceptableTargets: Technology, organized religion and the music industry.
* AwesomeMusic: '''Take your pick'''.
** Some will admit besides "Blackest Eyes", "Anesthetize" is a pretty grand song, especially when it hits "The Pills I'm Taking".
** "Voyage 34" deserves a mention for being one of the longest singles ever released (about 30 minutes).
* 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 Opeth [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks changed their music]], Ironically since Wilson helped produce ''Blackwater Park'' and the beloved ''Damnation''.
* 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.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Steven Wilson, full stop.
* MagnumOpus: ''In Absentia'', arguably ''Fear of a Blank Planet''.
* NightmareFuel: Have [[NightmareFuel/PorcupineTree their own page]].
* 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).
* SweetDreamsFuel: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDNqLQL1aNE "Half Light"]]. Possibly doubles as a TearJerker.
* TearJerker: Have [[TearJerker/PorcupineTree their own page]].
* TookALevelInJerkass: Some hardcore detractors will say Wilson's attitude (mainly towards music) has changed over the years, one person pointing out Wilson's criticizing several known progressive musicians for being "the death of prog" only to incorporate said musicians's style into his later album. Of course some fans can just assume Wilson changed his mind after this, being the NiceGuy he is.
* [[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]].
