4 stars This is basically the left over's from Fear Of A Blank Planet, with some earlier versions of the songs, but to be honest, some of these songs could have been put on the album.

Keeping the similar sound, these songs are alot more experimental and maybe a wee bit improvised, but what's Porcupine Tree without a wee bit of weird?

1. Nil Recurring - Robert Fripp? On guitar. Ok, that makes sense. This instrumental is pretty odd, but enjoyable. Maybe a new King Crimson album could be made while Robert is on the loose.

2. Normal - I prefer this to Sentimental. The end chorus wasn't even in Sentimental...and it has the title of the song in it. In my head, this is in the album.

3. Cheating The Polygraph - You could have easily slip this is in. Very underlooked and a great song. Hopefully they won't forget this song.

4. What Happens Now? - A wee bit overdrawn, but to be honest, what isn't. Again, could have easily been slid onto the album.

CONCLUSION: Not essentilal, but should be bought nontheless. A bit short as well, but they are leftovers.
