4 stars This is my first review, and what better then to review one of my first Porcupine Tree's vinyl. This album was made back when Steven was still finding the "sound" he was looking for in Porcupine Tree, and if you notice in this album he kind of bounced around in mellow to just solid progressive songs. From the beauty of small fish, to the brain teasing sounds of the track, Up The Down Stairs. Steven has been all over the place and really hit peak with this album and brought in a great revune of fans. When and if you decide to take the step into purchasing something of past Porcupine Tree because your still so caught up in Stupid Dream and everything after that i suggest this album of them all. You will listen to first two tracks and like me you will probably stop what your doing and just lean back in your chair or stratch your body out and ask yourself, "What did i just listen to?". Experiencing this with more then one song trust me when i say this, when the album name track comes up and you are listening to it, you will want to play it over and over and over agian, awesome everything, Bass, Drums, Atmosphere, Structure you name it, its got it.

4 Stars because later Steven did perfect the Porcupine Tree sound but this was so close and so amazing none the less, pick this album up and i highly suggest you purchase the vinyl and take an hour or 2 to sit back and just listen to it in its entirety.

Deathtoll | 4/5 |
