2 stars This album, like allot of Porcupine Tree's stuff, is more about production then composition. Steve probably spends more time hunched over his computer choosing what keyboard sounds they will use then they do choosing what chords they will play and how to use them. It seems he gets a keyboard or bass line repeating over and over then add some cool sounds and nice guitar solos over top, throw in a couple of breaks and dynamics and they're done. Not very impressive in the composition department. I'm surprised that this band does so well on a progressive site. However, they do come up with nice soundscapes, probably better suited for meditating, or getting stoned to. This band is compared to Pink Floyd allot, but I much prefer Pink Floyd as they compose much better and come up with good soundscapes as well.
