4 stars Great!

This is not my favourite PT phase, but i appreciate their early records pretty much, althought they were not a "band", as the proper term gives name, we can still rely on Steven Wilson genius to get enough satisfaction for our ears (awesome guitar playing!). Collaborations of Barbieri, Maitland and Edwin round up the sound of the album a little more, but i can´t give it the status of masterpiece, such as let´s say, "Stupid Dream" or "Lightbulb Sun"; their sound in those records have a stronger definition and unique style achieved by a more mature and properly established band, early PT records are really good but they don´t leave me with such an intense feeling as their last acomplishments...

Something is missing, but indeed, this Wilson record is worth at least 3.7 or 3.8 stars...
