A jam for the fans.

Besides the occasional annoyance of repeated clicks, beats and endless space noise.I find this to be a good record. 'Metanoia' was recorded during the 'Signify' sessions. All of the music is improvisation brought out by the consistent line-up of Steven Wilson, Richard Barbieri, Colin Edwin and Chris Maitland.

If there is one thing to rave about on this album, it would be Colin Edwin's bass performance which is pretty damn nice. Colin and Chris Maitland both hold down the beat while the guitar and synthesizers take the lead work. That pretty much sums up this album well. The improvisation is not too bad besides the occasional over indulgence and repetition.

The fans could enjoy this one. If you are looking for a Porcupine Tree record you would want to have as a first, look the other way.
