1967/ 1976
3 stars An interesting but too long album by Porcupine Tree. Unfortunately, not all songs are great and I can not digest "The Creator Has A Mastertape". Spades of psychedelic music naked and raw and distorted guitars that go beyond the Prog Metal but, in hindsight, have also in the Alternative Metal roots. Construction of the songs that have only two visions: POP or Psychedelic Rock, looking for a mix that is not always successful. The production is clean and the power increases too, so there is no trace of magic and feeling.

It is interesting to note, however, as Porcupine Tree is a solid and penetrating band: you can not have at least an album if you love Prog. Yet I can not seem to empathize with Porcupine Tree.

1967/ 1976 | 3/5 |
