2 stars Well I decided to move to porcupine tree's earlier stuff and I thought I would start out with "the sky moves sideways" their well known album in the early 1990's. And the first thing that came through my mind when finishing this album is "Pink Floyd ripoff". I'm not a huge fan of pink Floyd but I do enjoy their album "wish you were here" and "the sky moves sideways" is basically a clone of wish you were here. Sure there are some porcupine tree originally (aka Steven Wilson's originally) in this album but the pink Floyd influences are much more noticeable and that what ruins the album for me. It's hard to listen to this album when you listened to "wish you were here" first and you enjoyed the album. But if I hadn't listened to wish you were here first. then this album would be rated 4/5 stars but instead it's going to be 2 stars. It's not that I hate this album. But everytime I want to listen to the album I usually end up listening to something else after the first 2 tracks. I believe that their newer stuff (from stupid dream to fear of a blank planet) is much more original and more tolerable rather then the earlier stuff. But I guess I cannot really say that because I haven't listened to much of their earlier stuff but so far. I'm not impressed.
