3 stars Another hidden pleasure in PT's extensive library featuring the solid grooves and atmospheric class of "Up the Downstair". The instrumental introduction is a dreamy delight, while most of the other songs hearken back to Wilson's early sound on "Sunday of Life". As a whole they lack the punch heard of "Up the Downstair" and deliver their pleasures through heaping doses of well composed textures and ambience-- with the occasional cameo of a guitar solo to spice it up; not as memorable as "UTDStair" though.

A great companion piece now included in the re-release of "Up the Downstair", and worth tracking down in its own right for the completions.

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
