4 stars From what I've listened from Porcupine Tree, this is one of their best. Unless the album has a couple of tracks wich are stunning. I could divide the album in two groups: The hard but still melodic tracks and the soft ballads. Of course I prefer the first group in which the tracks are based on hard guitar riffs and a great bass-drum work. Here is the title song, a fast number with a superb chorus in which the riff and the Wilson voice creates a great moment. The highlight is the epic Anesthetize. The song starts in the way of a ballad and then gets into a really heavy sound, very agressive. Really outstanding. The guitars and the drum shines everytime, and the voices too. The other one is the only one composed as a group effort call Way out of here. Shorter than Anesthetize, has a similar feeling. Really good. Both songs could be called progressive rock. The ballads are My Ashes and Sentimental. The first one is a very good track, the other not so good, a bit boring. The album closes with Sleep together, a middle way betwen the two groups that I mentioned before. Because Anesthetize and Way out of here I think that this CD is a good addition for any progressive rock collection.
