This is an extremely short EP by Porcupine Tree, just featuring two songs and a music video.

'Stranger by the Minute' is a radio edit of the original from the album 'Stupid Dream'. It sounds just as good as the original, just not as complete, because it is edited (obviously).

'Even Less (Part Two' is something that would be a keen interest to a huge Porcupine Tree fan. 'Even Less' was originally a fourteen minute piece that was decided by the band to get knocked down to about half the length. This track starts out with a wonderful instrumental that rocks your face off. The original chorus is brought right back into the song halfway through. A little alternate version of the verse is brought in at the end of the song with a flute solo for the outro! I found it sad that the song was split. You can get the whole version of the 'Recordings' album.

'Piano Lessons' is the official video for the track. It is as one would expect for the kind of song it is. A bit strange, but funny to watch since this is Steven Wilson.

This is for serious fans only since the length of this EP is disgusting. The tracks on here are all really nice though.
