In absentia

If I elimnate the nostalgia factor of the decade I grew up in, I would have to admit that my all-time favourite rock group by now is no longer the prog version of Genesis or Pink Floyd, but Porcupine Tree. Their music is simply amazing, and their sense of art as evidenced by the album covers and the photographs on their web site is excellent as well. This cover is from their 2002 album In absentia, widely acclaimed as one of their best efforts. The stunning cover art is based on a photograph by Lasse Hoile.
