4 stars This is the first of 4 Porcupine Tree releases that I own and will review. I have been very appreciative of the fact that this website let me discover this band. I am not sure anything of theirs that I have picked up is perfect, but they are very close, all of them. The best songs on this album: "Blackest Eyes"- awesome song! One of P Tree's best. 5 stars "Trains"- also great. 5 stars. "Gravity Eyelids"- 4 1/5 stars. Almost perfect, but a little repetitive. "Heartattack in a Layby" and "Collapse the Light into Earth"- both cool slower songs. 5 stars each. The rest of this is not as interesting to me, but no bad songs, all are at least 3 stars. So, overall I give this 4 stars. It's not my favorite Porcupine Tree (Deadwing or Fear of a Blank Planet are), but it's still a very fine album. 4 stars
