Glad to see this band make it to the archives.

Been following them ever since the debut, recommended to me for being a huge Porcupine Tree fan, but the similarities aren't as big as people make them out to be. Similar band set up it may be, but the melodies were very original and the vocals were also quite unique. If I could compare the specific album by Porcupine Tree it relates to would be In Absentia. The album mixes up well with heavy and clean songs and heavy/clean passages within the songs without anything sounding forced. There are some nice keys and sampling throughout establishing some great mood here on the album. Also, expect some great guitar solos in a few places which are far more virtuostic than PT ones, and they are just as tasteful.

What this album really excels in, is the melodies. Recommended for fans of Porcupine Tree, but they will find this to rank up there with anything PT has done.
