The Truth
5 stars I totally love this album! The excellent music of Porcupine Tree mixed with the Floydian concept is a recipe for delight. Although more pop influenced than other albums they still maintain the healthy dose of prog in each song. Piano Lessons is one of my favorite tracks mainly because of how catchy it is, but after listening to the lyrics a couple times, you realize the overarching theme of the album so it is an important track. Pure Narcotic is a very nice track, the lyrical theme bringing to mind the late Syd Barrett. Don't Hate Me's sax solo is a big highlight and This Is No Rehearsal and Stranger By the Minute are two good catchy tracks. Tinto Brass is a superb instrumental that captured my heart at first listen. So overall, although this album is at times leaning toward mainstream rock, Porcupine Tree has still made an album that I love every time I listen.
The Truth | 5/5 |
