In this introductory episode of the PopMatters Progcast, we explore the context and impact of Steven Wilson's best studio albums to date, including both solo works and collaborative creations.

For over 20 years, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, No Man) has been a major force in modern English progressive rock (among other styles), and his recently released fifth solo LP, To the Bone, maintains that genre-defying excellence very well.

In this introductory episode of the PopMatters Progcast, lifelong progressive rock aficionados Jordan Blum and Jedd Beaudoin explore the context and impact of Wilson's best studio albums to date -- including both solo works and collaborative creations -- as well why To the Bone is the most drastically polarizing record he's ever made.
