3 stars Yeah, three is about right. Maybe a bit less, but the whole rounding thing, you know? It's got its moments, it's got its fun, but it's just a bit too disjointed to really pull through as an album. Most of the tracks can't stand well on their own, and kind of need the album surrounding them to sound like much. Unfortunately, it isn't quite cohesive enough to really save these songs. Tracks like Jupiter Island and Linton Samuel Dawson are pretty awesomely weird, though. If you really enjoy Porcupine Tree, and can bebop to Up the Downstair or The Sky Moves Sideways, I bet you'll like this one well enough. However, if you don't like really, really strange music, or if you want some more structured music and less aimless sound-meanderings, be careful with this release.

It's fun, but nothing remotely essential.
