Review by ProgKidJoel

Porcupine Tree's STRANGER BY THE MINUTE is a great CD, compiling a great track with the second half to an even better track, and a great video to another great track!

The title track to this STUPID DREAM promo is a great track, highly reminiscent of RADIOHEAD. It features a great, simple riff and empathetic lyrics. Its a great pop tune, and one of the poppest Porcupine Tree have released.

The second half of EVEN LESS is a great bonus, although its annoying that this is included as the second half only, making it incredibly difficult to listen to both halves in sequence. This is an inconvenient and unneccesary way to store the two halves, as on the remastered DVD-A of STUPID DREAM, you can find the track as a whole extended version, and its also available on the RECORDINGS compilation.

The video of PIANO LESSONS is entertaining, although more of a bonus than anything else... Its a radio edit of the track, and isn't as fulfilled as the album version. This video is also available on the remastered DVD-A of STUPID DREAM, so this also rules out buying this single for that purpose.

A good disc, but at the end of the day, the only person who need buy it is a completionist, as all of the material is available on much more full discs.

Enjoy! -Joel
