Spanning the period when the band evolved from being a Steven Wilson solo vehicle into a full band, Porcupine Tree’s third album centres around the two halves of the 35 minute title track.
Awash with melancholic vocals, hypnotic guitar solos, spacious textures and dynamic instrumental passages, this deluxe digibook edition has been expanded to include an extra disc of rarities.
CD1 includes the original album as intended for vinyl, but remixed in 2004 (adding Gavin Harrison’s drums to 2 pieces), and CD2 contains the Moonloop EP, and a long alternate version of the title track that includes music cut from the final album version as well as different lyrics.
