5 stars Considered the best Porcupine Tree album by many Porcupine Tree fans, Signify marks a change in the band's music. More rock oriented, Signify approaches pop, not beeing an exclusively ambiental/space/psychadelic improvisation like it's predecessor Sky Moves Sydeways. It's like Porcupine Tree's Dark Side of the Moon.

All the band members shows very talent in their instruments like Steven Wilson's superb guitar solo in Waiting phase I a la DAVID GILMOUR (or should i say a la Steven Wilson ?), Chris Maitland varied and pleasant repertory at the drumms (like in the Intermediate Jesus jam or in the superb jazz-rock Waiting Phase II), the talent of keyboardist Barbieri in creating delusional landscapes and the bass-lines improvisations of Colin Edwin.

It is a vary varied album, from the explosive rock instrumental "Signify" (a la RUSH techno- rock); the catchy melodies of Sever (stays in your head from the first listen), Sleep of no Dreaming and Waiting phase I (with its jazz derivations); the superb innovative space/ambiental/pshyco jams of Intermediate Jesus and Waiting Phase II; the danceable pshyco Idiot Prayer and the ambiental catchy Dark Matter, which resembles Peter Gabriel era GENESIS.

Steven Wilson and his fellows reached to make a very pleasant and cohesive album. One of the best progressive ROCK albuns of the 90's for sure, shows all the talent and originality of Steven Wilson.
