4 stars Nil Recurring is a delightful EP from the excellent Porcupine Tree. Make no mistake - the material here is not composed of out-takes from FOABP. All four tracks stand on their merits, though there are a number melodic and lyrical passages referenced from the prior album. But I won't bore you with song details - just darken the room and turn it up!

This EP is damn exciting - never mind the comments about lack of originality - we've been hearing such pointless criticism since the release of Deadwing. For goodness' sake, Pink Floyd hadn't produced anything truly original since Meddle. But that hardly subtracts from the value and enjoyment of their subsequent work.

Porcupine Tree have gone through a number of stylistic stages (I believe we're presently at Mark III) and I've loved them all. I'm looking forward to seeing the fellas perform again - always a pleasurable adrenaline rush!
