5 stars This was my first experience of PT and it blew my socks off. I think live sets in general add an extra dimension to any band and I think that this was half of the reason behind my liking it so much. What I found so refreshing was the cool arrangements and melodies as well as the dark seemingly very personal lyrics to some tracks and the deeper meanings to others. I've listened to a few more of their albums since which I'll try and review in time (all of which I love). I think I was fortunate to get hooked straight away by Even Less. Some of the other tracks seem to have to grow on me but this one was an immediate 5*. What strikes me most about the music is appears to be unique. The melodies and some of the arrangement seem to send the listener off on a wild goose chase of seeming familiarity at the start and then a jump half way through into something that only in hindsight makes perfect musical sense. Anyway I won't go into how cool the rest of this record is since if you are reading this I presume you already know and have listened to it more than me anyway :-) If you haven't had the fortune of listening to PT and you have a wide taste in 'good' music I'd highly recommend this one.
