5 stars What you are listening to is brilliance!

Up The Downstair is one of my favourite PT albums and came from the best era of the band, before they went too commercial.

Synesthesia: A good opener which represents the psycadelic nature of the album, but my least favorite compared to the rest. - 8/10

Always Never: Really catchy at the start and turns into a slow build up towards a fantastic solo. - 9.5/10

Up The Downstair: Long, interesting, atmospheric and psycadelic. This may take a few listens to appreciate. -8.5/10

Not Beautiful Anymore: This is the heaviest song here and has a great rhythm to provide a very fun listen. It never gets old. - 9/10

Small Fish: A nice short piece with a good solo. It should be treated as an intro to Burning Sky. - 9/10

Burning Sky: A great upbeat journey within this song. It includes a reprise from Small Fish. Arguably the best song on the album. -10/10

Fadeaway: Very majestic and a beautiful close for an amazing album. -10/10

(My review disregards the very small interludes between the songs.)

Quirky Turkey | 5/5 |
