2 stars This album gets a lot of funny reviews both ways. Some people can't stand the length and others the style. I personally am not much a fan, but every once in a while, this release does really click.

The thing is, like Metanoia, Voyage 34 is another really trippy release by Porcupine Tree. This thing hangs off the end of Up the Downstair, being the single series, if you will, written around the same time. You'll find the music here to be quite similar to the idea of Fadeaway or the title track off that album. Yes, there's a lot of Pink Floyd vibe (some say direct Pink Floyd quotes, but that seems like a bit of an overreaction). Yes, there is no presence of the latter day Porcupine Tree energy or songwriting. This album is simply something of a side project for the band, though in truth if it were made today it would not have the Porcupine Tree name on it, I don't think. The psychedelia is in full force here, discussing LSD and drug related things.

This album should be of interest to serious fans of the band's early works, but to people who don't really find Up the Downstair all that terribly interesting, this is really something that can be missed. A fun, terrifyingly trippy listen.
