2 stars Porcupine Tree - 'Pure Narcotic (single)' 2 stars

The music is good, but only fans would want to purchase this.

'Pure Narcotic' is just an edited down version of the original on 'Stupid Dream'.

'Tinto Brass' however, is a different animal. The live version of the track bares little resemblance to the original. It is more of Tinto Brass, mixed with the improv from 'Metanoia'. The notable chorus ends the track though.

'Door to the River' is from the 'Metanoia' sessions. It isn't a very good piece, just spacey psychedelic improv.

This is a very short EP. I could not possibly recommend it to anyone but a serious fan of the band. 2 stars give due to an extreme lack of material and some of the material not being worthy. Specifically, because of an edit to the not so long piece 'Pure Narcotic' and the boring 'Door to the River'.
