5 stars Porcupine Tree is one of those bands who has never released a single dud in their entire career. I've heard everything the band has been able to put out and still with each new album, words can barely describe their sound. Up the Downstair is probably their first "official" album whereas On the Sunday of Life was just kind of experimenting. This is one of those albums that just enables you to float away into another dimension. Few albums come this close to being perfect. It's just one of those things you can sit down and listen to over and over again without a single stray thought entering your mind. From the opening track which sets the mood and captivates the listen until the dreamy melodies of Fade Away, you will be sucked into an entirely new world that few people ever explore. I think that is a quality that justifies an album being a masterpiece. So sit down and listen to some nice ethereal music for about an hour!
