    The songs are very spiritual, the music is all moving and isn't made by teens (most of them are over 40, they never were teens), the music is innovative and doesn't have a genre, they sometimes go instrumental with Pink Floyd-esque, the lyrics are addictive, the riffs are amazing, the music isn't too heavy, the drums are excellently and precisely played.

    Also, Steven Wilson, the lead singer, keyboardist, guitarist and pianist, is my idol. He taught himself to play music and most of my music project for arts and music is based around his music. Steven Wilson also had childhood difficulties that he overcome and isn't a poser like most lead singers.

    they have too much good songs

    Overall I'd say Trains and The Sound of Musak are the best from everything they've done, then after than you can go from their newest single, Fear of a Blank Planet, or one of their instrumentals (Not Beautiful Anymore, Tinto Brass) or Deadwing.

    So,

    - Trains
    - The Sound of Musak
    - Deadwing / Fear of a Blank Planet / Not Beautiful Anymore / Tinto Brass

    It depends, they do a lot of wanky concept albums that aren't that good unless you've listened to a lot of prog rock and you're used to that kind of album. I'd recommend something like In Absentia

    For example I don't think their most recent release is very good, nor is Deadwing that good.
