4 stars On Signify Porcupine Tree had solidified as a fully-fledged band project, the metamorphosis having occurred during the Sky Moves Sideways period. In terms of its atmosphere and approach it's something of a return to the model set by Up the Downstair - moving away from the agonisingly long compositions of The Sky Moves Sideways, the band hone down their musical approach into more bite-size samples of thoroughly modernised space rock, with plenty of found audio samples to embellish the sound. With its tranquil space rock moods occasionally collapsing into intricate King Crimson-ish workouts, Signify isn't quite a masterpiece but it's more than strong enough to prove that the band were in it for the long haul, and once the album closer Dark Matter has finished most prog fans will be eager for more.
Warthur | 4/5 |
