I wish there was a thing called c-sides 

A beautiful set of songs that were not taken into consideration for being part of 'Stupid Dream' or 'Lightbulb Sun', these B-side tracks are better then what most bands can do in their 'best of.' collections. Some of the obvious main highlights is the opening track 'Buying New Soul' that could be considered the best song Porcupine Tree has ever made. The other would be the full blow-out version of 'Even Less'. All of the songs except for maybe the track called 'untitled' can hit the listener in a variety of ways, they all seem to make it home to me eventually, making me come to like them. Most of the songs besides the 3 aforementioned ones are pretty short in composition, mostly laid back acoustic tracks. Others to note would be the nice psychedelic track that turned into a hard rock groove that is 'Ambulance Chasing' and the near post-rockish ambient piece, 'Oceans Have No Memory'.

This is excellent for a compilation of b-side tracks.
