'The Raven That Refused to Sing (And Other Stories)' is the third solo album by Steven Wilson, released in 2013. Each track on the album is based on a story of the supernatural. Alan Parsons was responsible for engineering the album. 'Allmusic' deemed it "the best of Wilson's three solo projects", stating that the album is "skillfully written music with expertly arranged compositions of color, nuance, texture, dynamics, narrative, and artfulness.."
As you may be aware an early review copy of The Raven That Refused To Sing (and other stories) was leaked on to the internet several weeks ago, and rapidly spread, with tens of thousands of downloads taking place. This was very frustrating for all those involved in making the record, and anyone that took advantage of the opportunity to download is respectfully encouraged to purchase the record in acknowledgement of the tremendous effort, expense and planning that went into creating the album
Music - wow, that's pretty interesting! Probably explains why some songs hit you like a big sloppy kiss. There are a few that are so good that I want to just move into the world they create...art's like that too, refuse the real world, make your own...
2. I love music. Music is my life. If I can't talk, let me sing. Let me play the piano or violin. If I don't know an instrument, let me try it anyways. Music is my creative outlet, my stress reliever, my prayer, and my love. Let me make music and you will see ME.
