Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This is a very interesting live release of early "Porcupine Tree" songs. The mood goes from symphonic, metal, spacey to fully psychedelic. You can find all these elements during the opener "Burning Sky". A great musical experience, I tell you. Most of the songs come out "Up The Downstair" (four out of six tracks).

"Voyage 34" their famous "trip" which is cut down here to only five minutes and which is really a good excerpts of the whole and "Radioactive Toy" one of their anthems from "On The Sunday Of Life" (but it was already featured on early tape material) do not come from this album. Beautiful spatial atmosphere for this track. This version is probably the best one available.

This release is really a good overview of their early work. On par with "Coma Divine" IMO and a perfect companion since only two songs are featured on both live releases. I wouldn't say that this is a masterpiece, but when you have six great PT numbers on a live album, you are very close.

Well, actually "Up The Downstair" and "Not Beautiful Anymore" are a bit weaker but fully belong to this "voyage".

Four stars for this excellent live effort and a very good idea to have released this one.

5 stars This LP is a great choice of early live performance from Porcupine Tree. We have here everything what's best before Sky Moves Sideways. In general music on this album is 100% Psychedelic/Space Rock. Each song is full of psychedlic sounds and groove. ... (read more)
