Why this article is headlined Four Albums Worth A Listen is beyond me, given how Darin slams Blackstar, and how Hinds is highlighted. Personally, never heard of them, so checked them out here.

I  have just counted over 50 albums in my collection that are by - or heavily influenced by - Steven Wilson, so you could count me in as a fan and am eagerly waiting for 4 1’2 which is due next week.
