3 stars A day in the life of Porcupine Tree!

Transmission IV (Moonloop), a forty minute long unedited improvisation, is at its best "inspired", although at close distance, a swirling tribute, here and there and everywhere to Mr. Pink's "trade-mark" guitar atmospherics. Why Steven Wilson intended to do so? I guess with such a vast discography, it could have been let pass by.

Maybe I did not check out and David Gilmour was an unexpected guest! (I am joking, but I did actually, check out!)

Anyway! The best parts of the improvisation, is when PT sounds like PT, and not PF, which ironically are, the more "electronic ambiental" parts or the "funkier" ones. Maybe as a "live" experience, it could have been haunting, but as such, it is good but not essential. (Unless you collect all of PT's records, which I don't).)

***3 PA stars.
