it seems most of us got in late as far as PT is concerned. please email Steven Wilson your credit card number ASAP so its easy for you to proceed
seriously speaking though, if you are just getting into PT, Stars Die: The Delerium Years
is fairly representative of the early PT stuff; then you can decide if you want to go back along their career and get the individual early albums (you will
, and there's like 10 years of output - hence the credit card joke).
Next would be the awesome sounding Arriving Somewhere
live DVD which would encapsulate the period after that
SW is also underrated as a guitarist (well, no one talks about his guitar playing that I've seen)
