unlike anything i have ever heard before, i had never heard of this band until this album and i must say it is downright amazing, trains is my favourite track

A classic album!

This album is without contest the best of Porcupine Tree. The music is crystalized, scouring and intelligent! Never I listened to an as well made album. A perfect mixture of new rock, metal, melancholy and musical arrangements bewitching. Always is necessary it to adore the progressive music, this album is the springboard for the new followers of Porcupine Tree. Amateur of progressive rock, metal or sentimental (!!!), give yourself a gift!


This is by far one of the best albums i've ever heard, and any fan of Porcupine Tree NEEDS this album in their collection. This album collects all that is great about Porcupine Tree. "Trains", "Blackest Eyes", "The Sound of Muzak", and "Prodigal" are four incredibly soulful songs, and "Collapse the Light Into Earth" is an amazingly relaxing song. This is an album that you can listen to OVER and OVER and those who are just discovering Porcupine Tree should be impressed at this album. 5 stars is not enough to describe how fantastic this album is, aswell as Porcupine Tree.
