2 stars Self-confessedly self indulgent, this album is one of the few unnecessary items in the PORCUPINE TREE discography.

Not that it's poor. Far from it. 'Metanoia' is the fruits of a couple of improv jam sessions held during the 'Signify' recording sessions, and consists largely of guitar and synth noodling over a steady rhythm. The musicians play well together, and I particularly enjoy COLIN EDWIN's bass work. In the end, however, it is the space-rock equivalent of a LIQUID TENSION EXPERIMENT exercise: impressive sound but of limited compositional value, which, I guess, is the nature of improv.

Prospective purchasers should note that it bears little resemblance to the polished albums in PT's catalogue. Not an album that gets regular play in my collection.
