3 stars This review is for the 1995 release . . .

The third full release from Porcupine Tree, see some lengthy tracks in the form of The Sky Moves Sideways - Phase One and Two, also the 17 minute Moonloop. After the bands' first two releases, I'm still waiting for that critical moment, when I can truly say, that I'm being moved by the music on offer. I might just add, that it's slowly getting better. . .

Phase One has it's moment near the end. Moonloop sets a nice tranquil mood, while Phase Two is probably the best track on offer here.

Maybe this is a notch up from 'Up The Downstair', but a small notch, a small one. . .

I see a lot of reviewers here liking this to the Floyd's Wish You Were Here. Don't even come close in my opinion, sad to say'but again, if you listen to this enough times it will grow on you and you'll be able to appreciate the individual moments of greatness when it presents itself.

Ozymandias | 3/5 |
