I know this will sound weird, but if any of you get some spare time I would suggest Journey's first album. Steve Perry wasn't with them at the time. The keyboardist was handling vocals. Some very cool, trippy, early style prog. Yeah, I was as surprised as you probably are when my brother-in-law popped it on while we were having a few beers. If he hadn't told me it was Journey I never would have guessed it.

Devin Townsend is amazing. I hope to read what others

Hey Cynic: I don't think there is ONE song you could listen to to get into Porcupine Tree because, like Devin Townsend, he is all over the place, style-wise. I would listen to the entire "Deadwing" album a couple of times through and then see what you think bout them. Thats probably the easiest album to digest. Then if you like PT then go backwards through their discography because it gets way weirder the farther back you go haha.

More than a year late Megg! Haha, cheers though I'm a true convert now - it was actually two songs in a row I guess, I think I was really hung over and listened to "Fadeaway" and "Rainy Taxi" in a row from their best of. Then I got "Fear of a Blank Planet" which was acutally quite different (very Toolish) and boom I'm now a preacher of the prog.

^The title/first track of Fear Of A Blank Planet would convert pretty much any 'someday' metal/prog fan (ie people that like Tool but don't really know anything much about anything much) into a Porcupine Tree fan. It's super groovy and accessible, easy as piss to listen to. Was an instant favourite track for me, until I discovered the rest of their discography :)
