4 stars Oh Steven... you love those eps, don't you?

With every Porcupine Tree [PT] album that's released there's a good chance that an ep will follow. Such is the case with Up the Downstair, Signify, and recently; Fear Of a Blank Planet. Unfortunately, eps such as this are usually impossible to find, but Mr. Wilson is a saint for packaging the eps with his remastered albums. Those of us lucky enough to purchase the remastered edition of Up The Downstair were treated to this Gem. A mostly instrumental piece that's a great child to it's parent releases, Up the Downstair and Voyage 34.

Catchy, spacey and all around wonderful this EP is a delightful bonus to an already excellent album. Those of you who actually have the EP on vinyl... cherish is for all eternity! 4 stars, likely the highest mark I'll ever give to an EP (see my other reviews for the reason to that), an excellent offering from the PT crew, just as good as a full album (and it's only about 3 minutes shy of that). Recommended for anyone who liked PT's early works or psychadellia in general.
