4 stars Coma Divine Live was Porcupine Tree's first live album, released in 1997 shortly after the Signify album. It's basically the best songs from Porcupine Tree's first four albums performed live, ranging from classics like Radioactive Toy and The Sky Moves Sideways to Waiting and Signify. Some of the songs have been shortened from their studio versions, but many have been expanded upon, which for many reasons is a good excuse for acquiring this. It's always more interesting when a band expands or modifies their original recordings, otherwise it just ends up being a greatest hits album which anyone can compile on their own from the studio albums.

The sound quality and production are exceptionally well done. The mix is also remarkable. The performance of Radioactive Toy is amazing and I can see why it's a crowd favorite. This is a must-have acquisition for Porcupine Tree fans, and would make an excellent addition to a general progressive rock collection. If you've never heard Porcupine Tree before, I would recommend getting The Sky Moves Sideways and Up The Downstair first before acquiring this. Easily a wonderful four-star live album and probably one of the better ones from this genre.
