The Beach Boys, Opeth, The Carpenters and Morbid Angel

From an old interview with Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree:

I love the Beach Boys and Brian Wilson is one of my great influences. I don't want to lose that element of Porcupine Tree.

I listen to everything from the Carpenters to Andy Williams to Morbid Angel to Opeth, and everything in-between. For me, musically, when I sit down to write music, very naturally, organically all these influences and ingredients mix up together. If you describe that mix on paper you'd think it's never going to work.

If you don't have any Porcupine Tree in your collection, you are really missing some fantastic music.
