Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is probably my favorite album from PORCUPINE TREE. It is heavier than Sky Moves or Lightbulb Sun, since there is a stronger metal touch here. The music is moving and varied, though. There are heavier passages, like the wild instrumental "Wedding Nails", dreamy and spacey passages like the album's best track, "Lips of Ashes", and true rockers like the opening "Blackest Eyes", which flows very well into the moving "Trains". There's not a bad song here, and the band is here to prove that modern music can be decent too. It is nothing mindblowing, though, hence the three starred rating.
