Porcupine Tree and uplifting... isn't that kind of contradictory? Both concepts kind of repel each other...

I was thinking that too. My favorite period by the band(the late 90's into the early 2000's)was particularly melancholy. With some songs it almost sounds like the world is going to end.

I'm going to be boring and say 'Trains' It's a beautifully written song with a strong emotional impact.

Honourable mentions to 'My ashes' and 'Arriving somewhere bu not here' too.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

There's so many but I'm going with Even Less just cause it hasn't been mentioned yet I don't think.

Strange As It Seems...

Buying New Soul and Arriving Somewhere But Not Here. And any long version of Radioactive Toy.

Of course it's uplifting. We human are more complex than someone saying "be happy" and then we are. Unless we're simpletons who like (are taken in by) fake smiles. (Thinking of sales people here).
