5 stars WARSZAWA is another fine album by Porcupine Tree in a live setting. This recording was taken from a live broadcast for Polish radio program III, Warszawa in the studio "im agnieszki Osieckiej" on April 6th 2001. Also in the studio during the broadcast was an invited audience who helped to make the atmosphere on the night and on this recording so special. This single CD accommodates the entire performance with the exception of "Tinto Brass". All of the music was recorded to 32 track digital tape and remixed at no man's land in June 2001.

(In order to have the whole album complete you can now download "Tinto Brass" for free from the PORCUPINE TREE DOWNLOAD STORE at )

The main difference between Warszawa and XM and XMII is that the XM albums were recorded in the XM studio's in Washington with absence of any audience, making the XM albums sound more sterile. Anyone who frequently visits PORCUPINE TREE live performances COMA DIVINE and WARSZAWA are a must have! Especially the track list of Warszawa, containing songs like EVENLESS, SHESMOVEDON, LAST CHANCE TO EVACUATE PLANET EARTH. and RUSSIA ON ICE is superb!

I would probably rate this fine live album by 4.4 stars, but now with the great instrumental track "TINTO BRASS" being added to it, it probably deserves closer to 5 stars.

evenless | 5/5 |
