3 stars I am a definite fan of Porcupine Tree. However their early material, including the first couple of albums, is the least interesting to my ears. A lot of it is just too ambient, too derivative of Pink Floyd IMO. I did enjoy this RADIO ACTIVE promo. I will give it 3 stars, although it may be hard to locate. I believe most of this material ended up on the UP THE DOWNSTAIRS album. "Synesthesia" is a bland way to begin the EP, but "The Joke's On You" is great. I wouldn't call any of these among my favorite Porcupine Tree songs, but there's enough variety on this release to hold your interest for 16 minutes. As with most of what Steven Wilson has a hand in, this is mostly quality material.
