For those who didn't know, No-Man is the side-project of Steven Wilson - the driving force behind Porcupine Tree - and Tim Bowness. You should also know that HT is not an original album but a collection of B-sides, rarities and unedited tracks recorded between 1991 and 1993. A kind of best of that is not a best of.

Steven Wilson is used to take care of the atmospheric side to bring a maximum of emotions during the listening. Heaven Taste is no exception to the rule. However, unlike Porcupine Tree's compositions, the saturated guitars and all the sounds that can be a bit aggressive are absent. 

As with any best of that is not, Heaven Taste's content is quite heterogeneous, going from a sung and hovering prog style for the first tracks to an Easy Listening for the last composition that could easily appear in a buddha bar or cafe del mar if it didn't last 20 minutes.

Heaven Taste is far from being worth the expressive and emotional side of Returning Jesus. Quite repetitive, here is an indispensable album for any Steven Wilson fan in need and optional for all the others.

OTHER REVIEWS
PINK FLOYD: Wish You Were Here (1975)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - Last collective opus of Pink Floyd, "Wish You Were Here" is the perfect album. To deprive oneself of its dry and dark force would be the worst mistake a progressive rock fan could make.
MOONSPELL: Sin Pecado (1998)
ATMOSPHERIC METAL - "Sin Pecado" confirms Moonspell's stylistic evolution towards more atmospheric, less extreme metal.
