A decent collection of some home brewed material before the original album.

This CD can easily be obtained by purchasing the re-mastered version of the 'Signify' album. I would utterly recommend getting it that way.

Overall this is obviously not as good as the album, but there are some spots on this EP that clearly outshines 'Signify'.

'Hallogallo' and 'Signify' flow into each other pretty nicely. 'Hallogallo' serves as an appetizer to 'Signify' in a slower, upbeat form with no heavy accentuated notes. 'Signify' does the opposite and instead of being boring and repetitive (as the original), it adds some nice ambience and chiming vocals.

'Waiting' - If this song were to be played in front of you, you wouldn't even notice the difference. The demo was very similar to the final track, so don't except any changes here.

'Neural Rust' and 'Dark Origins' were largely ambient pieces in the style of the album 'Signify'. It was pretty sweet.

'Nine Cats' is a track from Porcupine Tree's debut album. This is an acoustic version and is done very well. It actually makes it feel like the entire first album could have been great given Steven's new found glory in production and acoustic work.

Anything I did not mention was basically a throw away and I almost mentioned everything! This is certainly something a fan of the band would want to have. People who know some of Porcupine Tree should consider eventually getting this good demo CD.
