4 stars Porcupine Tree is one band that never stays put with one perticular sound. To be honest I'm glad of that. WHile I think 'The Sky Moves Sideways' is a really good album I wouldn't say it's their best. The title track (prts. 1 and 2) is really good. The same goes for 'Moonloop' and 'The Moon Touches Your Shoulder'. 'Dislocated day' is good too but feels a little bit out of place even though I have no idea what other place it could be put in. It's a sold work but I know that Steven Wilson and the band don't like the Pink Floyd tag that came with it. I'm glad they were able to get past that to later make outstanding albums like 'Lightbulb Sun', 'Signify', and 'In Absentia'. Worth owning if you are a fan of the band.
