Mystery
4 stars In Porcupine Tree's more psychedelic and more obviously Pink Floyd influenced period, they created around 4 albums. I like all of PT's eras, but the early years actually are my least favorite. Still, they feature some fantastic music. This album proceeded The Sky Moves Sideways and preceded Stupid Dream, on which PT developed some more alternative/poppy influence.

Regardless, this album has some songs and passages that are hauntingly beautiful. The song Sleep of No Dreaming remains my favorite pre-Stupid Dream PT song because of the amazing progression and beautiful chorus. Other songs, like Every Home is Wired, also are amazing in their own right, and listening to this album in full is quite fulfilling.

That said, there are some weak spots on this album. There isn't really filler, but some songs are quite obviously weaker than others, like Sever and the title track.

This album is still a great edition to anyone's prog collection because it features some of PT's most gorgeous passages.

Mystery | 4/5 |
