4 stars The 1999 issue of STUPID DREAM was good, maybe even very good. The 2006 re-issue also being remixed in multi channel 5.1 is even better. Not only the 5.1 version is interesting to listen to, also the 2.0 stereo mix seems more "clear" than its predecessor. The new version of the album also contains a new approach on the artwork, based on the original artwork, by Lasse Hoile.

If you don't have this album yet I would certainly advise you to get the 2006 re-issue as the 5.1 mix is simply astonishing. You should play it on a DVD-A player, but it is also playable in Dolby Digital or dts, making it enjoyable on almost any surround home theatre set. PORCUPINE TREE has won several awards for their multi channel album mixes and this one proves that they really take this very seriously and put a lot of effort in it.

So far for the technical stuff. What rests is a great album with almost no flaws. My personal favourites of this album are EVEN LESS, DON'T HATE ME, TINTO BRASS and STOP SWIMMING. Not that the other songs are bad, on the contrary! All songs are really worth it making this album rate at least 4 stars!

Why not 5 stars? Simply because I personally find RECORDINGS even better!
