3 stars "Staircase Infinities" is a side EP of the album "Up The Downstair", PT's second album. The structure is really good, and the songs are as well; this EP is another one of those forgotten releases of this unbelievable band, that are now hard to find and listen to. Like all PT's early releases, SI is very influenced by atmospheric space rock, Pink Floyd, electronic, and Prog Rock generally speaking. If you prefer the crunchy, distorted latter style of the band, then you might as well put this aside. If you can appreciate it, then I promise you you won't regret it.

Some songs are really brilliant, like "The Joke's On You", a beautiful, melodic piece, really dreamy and haunting., or "Navigator" a great atmospheric song, with many elements that remind of the band's studio debut, "On The Sunday Of Life...". Te other three songs are good too, even though sometimes they get a little too boring.

Like I said earlier, for being just an EP this album is really good, with many memorable moments that if you are a fan of the band you must not miss. 3.5 stars.
