5 stars This is PT's most versatile record to date (I'm writing this review 2/2008). 12 songs, 12 different moods, from the almost happy opener BLACKEST EYES to the incredible atmospheric ending COLLAPSE THE LIGHT INTO EARTH. Every song has its merits but it takes quite a lot of spins to discover them all. For the time being my favourite tracks are TRAINS; THE SOUND OF MUZAK; GRAVITY EYELIDS; .3; THE CREATOR HAS A MASTERTAPE and the aforementioned COLLAPSE THE LIGHT... But beware: this is one of those records you can't rely on reviews since they will recommend different songs. You'll have to find out for yourself which songs you'll like best. There can be only one unanimity: this is a must for every prog fan. 5 stars.
