30 Minutes of Musical Beauty

This is one of the more recent Porcupine Tree albums I picked up and lemme tell ya. It's worth taking the time to search for it. It's not like their later releases. 4 of the 5 tracks are instrumental (Joke's On You being the exception) and everything is based on solos with ethereal keyboards behind them.Steven Wilson solos off of himself quite well here O.o Cloud Zero starts off with a cool jazz guitar solo then continues with another nice solo flying over it. Incredibly nice song. Rainy Taxi and Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape are two more highlights off the album. Rainy Taxi has some nice spacious organ work while YHD has an incredible solo than goes on for a few minutes with some really surreal synth. This entire album is a space trip. It's not like In Absentia, this album focuses on letting your mind go free in space. Very recommended!
