Steven Wilson Hand Cannot Erase

Thom Jurek: ‘In January of 2006, the remains of Joyce Carol Vincent, aged 38, were discovered in her London flat. She died in her apartment in late 2003, surrounded by undelivered Christmas presents. She was described as outgoing, attractive, and ambitious by neighbors, friends, and family, but somehow wasn’t missed. This chilling story made headlines in Great Britain, and the mysterious person behind it moved Steven Wilson to create this fictional concept album (small “c”). He doesn’t adhere to story’s grim details. Instead he writes from the perspective of a living woman who is, due to choice, circumstance, or both, alone and ultimately unknowable. Engineered by Steve Orchard, and produced and mixed by Wilson, the album is sonically rich and detailed. It’s an immense, imaginative landscape that melds classic album rock, sophisticated ’80s pop, metal, prog, and electronica in expertly crafted songs. Prog isn’t the driver as it was on 2013’s The Raven That Refused to Sing, but there are ample places for Wilson’s muscular all-star band to stretch. Israeli vocalist Ninette Tayeb plays an important guest role. …… It is aesthetically attractive while being emotionally and intellectually resonant; pop music cannot hope to accomplish more.’
