3 stars Been waiting for a brighter spark from Porcupine Tree and this album starts off nicely with Even Less and then Piano Lessons. Next to mention is Slave Called Shiver and then they very moody and excellent Don't Hate Me. The instrumental piece, Tinto Brass, is a much rockier track, but as for the rest, they're all there or there abouts!

This album in its entirety seems a lot more mainstream and less of the psychedelic elements are to be found. Other than the sub 8 minute Don't Hate Me, the tracks are all shorter.

For me, that mystical spark has not been found yet. Although different than their previous offerings, not sure which direction the band is likely to take from here on. 3 Stars.

Ozymandias | 3/5 |
