EDITORS’ NOTES

On his fifth solo record, the prolific Steven Wilson builds a monumentally lush collection inspired by his ‘70s and ‘80s art-pop heroes, like Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel. Wilson’s cinematic ambition pays off in spades: The title track’s mystical grooves ease you into the album’s layered sound, and Israeli singer Ninet Tayeb provides a showstopping performance amid cosmic pop atmospheres on “Pariah.” Steady yourself for the guitar solo of “Refuge”—it’s an epic shred over the song’s spacey crescendo.
