4 stars Considered as the first proper studio album from PT, we find, however that this is a compilation of the early works from Wilson, when he was alone. Considering that all of this work was completely experimental, it is quite obvious that the weirdness here is the trademark through the whole record. Still, there are pieces of the exquisite musical touch from Steve Wilson, which was yet to develop but, even at this early stage and starting Porcupine Tree as a joke, the result is quite interesting and enjoyable.

We find parts of psychedelic instrumental work, atmospheric and strangely vocalized songs, like "Jupiter Island", enjoyable retro-reminiscent songs like "Nine Cats" or even epic and up-and-down mooded songs like "Footprints". Again, as I said, the weirdness. But well performed.

Maybe this is not the most consistent or structured record from Porcupine Tree, but it means a good way to know the roots of this project now converted into a serious and complete band.
