Not the cheeriest CD ever released, with the subject matter ranging from "I wanna die" to "it's the end of the world". If it wasn't for the majestic melodies, this would have you reaching for the Joy Division CD's in a bid for a bit of light relief. This second release from Steven Wilson and Aviv Geffen is basically the shorter and more melodic side of Porcupine Tree ("Lazarus" from "Deadwing" would fit in nicely here) and it's certainly chock full of wonderful melodies from start to the afore-mentiond "End of the World". This is Steven Wilson reining in his prog tendencies a bit and going for the shorter songs, which would not sound out of place on mainstream radio. Give it a few listens and the hooks get into your brain and stay there. Featuring the distinctive Porcupine Tree harmonies and chord changes, this is perfect for those of you who prefer the shorter and simpler side of PT. Just don't expect any jokes.
