4 stars One of the biggest reasons for the success of Steven Wilson's music is the variety of influences he presents. Of all of PORCUPINE TREE's music, the more space rock/psychedelic songs are the ones I usually like least. That personal preference affects my overall rating of Staircase Infinities. Since this music is performed by Wilson alone, I miss the brilliant playing of his PT bandmates.

My favorite songs on this release are "The Joke's On You" and "Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape". The songs overall tend to sound similar to each other. However, even Wilson's lesser material is compelling. It's a testament to his considerable talent that he makes Floydian psychedelic rock this enjoyable. Many bands try & can't pull it off. I'm going to consider Staircase Infinities an "excellent addition." It's an enjoyable half hour for fans of PT/Steven Wilson.
