3 stars Being somewhat on the fence tettering between prog and alternative rock, Porcupine Tree for me excels at being both at the same time. Unfortunately, this album is neither. Now, I'm not against a bit of moodiness, but "Signify" is saturated with it at the expense of any kind of memorable melody. You can jam all you want, (being tagged a space/psych band) but if its unexciting, its unexciting. Being more prog previous to this album in a Pink Floydish vain and having catchy hooks and monster-like metal jams after this album, this album falls way down to the bottom rung of all their recordings. I really can't pick one song that I could recommend. So for me, this 'signifies' a boring outing. 2.5 stars rounded to 3. It's not bad, it just lays there like a lump.
