2 stars On The Sunday of Life isn't so much a studio album as it is a compilation of tracks previously released under the then pseudonym Porcupine Tree. A good chunk of the songs on this album are complete throwaways, with a couple of exceptions. Tracks like "Jupiter Island" and "Linton Samuel Dawson" are worth checking out as long as you don't take them too seriously. Then you have "Radioactive Toy", a song which sounds more like what the future Porcupine Tree would come to be, and is one of the very few memorable tracks on the entire album.

I wholly believe this album fits the two-star rating description of "Collectors/fans only" to a tee. If you're a fan of Porcupine Tree, it's certainly worth checking out for a bit of amusement or curiosity of the origins of the band, but beyond that it's an easy album to ignore.
