4 stars Porcupine Tree's sixth album, Stupid Dream, changes the style of the band from their previous album, Signify, bringing on more of an accessible pop sound that would be continued in their next studio effort, Lightbulb Sun. However, this album still contains quite a variety of styles, ranging from the semi-metallic song This Is No Rehearsal, to the short, psychedelic track Baby Dream in Cellophane. Tinto Brass brings us some instrumental mayhem, while the much shorter instrumental title track (clocking in at just 28 seconds) links two of the album's catchiest songs, Piano Lessons and Pure Narcotic. Colin Edwin really shines on the tracks Slave Called Shiver and Don't Hate Me. Overall, this album is a solid release and is a necessary purchase for Porcupine Tree fans. 4/5
