"On The Sunday Of Life..." is a box full of toys, an album full of surprises.

I can't believe how underrated this album is. Seems like nobody understood what On The Sunday Of Life is; it's not a naive and immature album like many debut albums, quite the contrary, it is so profound that it scares me.

Now all the snob critics might think that I'm naive, and perhaps they're right. But I'll never stop loving this album, it is amazing from start to finish, a hymn to the most sincere psychedelic music. But not only that: On the Sunday Of life is a near perfect succession of strange short songs, all instrumental, and long melodic, creepy, nostalgic songs that always have given me feelings that rarely I've found with the listening of an album.

OTSOL is also an unbelivable journey through the genius and kind of childish mind of Steven Wilson; at the time, in fact Porcupine Tree was a one man band, and the other musicians were simply considered guests. and finally, OTSOL is a box full of toys, an album full of surprises and unusual music, so incredibly original and beautiful that rarely today you can find something like that, and Steven Wilson after this was never able to make music like this, even though PT's discography is full of masterpieces, and some are even better, but none of them are so weird yet so intelligent, other than beautiful. An absolute masterpiece, essential to anyone who loves psychedelic rock, and not only.
