PORCUPINE TREE picture
Porcupine Tree is a progressive/aternative rock band formed in England.

Porcupine Tree began as a joke between Steven Wilson and Malcolm Stocks in 1987, the joke being Porcupine Tree being a long-forgotten 70's space rock band. This joke was shown on their debut 'On the Sunday of Life'. Soon, Steven Wilson had Porcupine Tree evolved from a joke to a heavy space rock band.

After four releases, Porcupine Tree took an alternative rock/progressive rock path with the releases 'Stupid Dream' and 'Lightbulb Sun'. These albums still contain metal influences and space-rock atmospheres, but are mostly based in prog/alt rock

In 2002, Porcupine Tree released their 'In Absentia' album. This album showed Porcupine Tree including even more metal elements. This in turn led to 2005's 'Deadwing', their heaviest album up until that point. The band continued with their metal style until they went on hiatus in 2010 after the release of 'The

PORCUPINE TREE The Sky Moves Sideways

Album · 1995 · Non-Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The Sky Moves Sideways" is the 3rd full-length studio album by UK progressive rock act Porcupine Tree. The album was released through Delirium Records in January 1995. It´s the successor to "Up The Downstair" from 1993 and while it essentially started out as another solo album by Steven Wilson under the Porcupine Tree monicker (like the first two albums), halfway through the recordings for the album Porcupine Tree became a band unit, as Richard Barbieri (keyboards), Colin Edwin (bass), and Chris Maitland (drums), joined Wilson to complete the first real Porcupine Tree band lineup. The former two had already guested on "Up The Downstair (1993)".

The original European version of "The Sky Moves Sideways" features 6 tracks. The "Phase 1" and "Phase 2" of the title track bookending the album. Both tracks exceeding 15 minutes in length. The remaining tracks are "Dislocated Day", "The Moon Touches Your Shoulder", "Prepare yourself", and the 17:04 minutes long "Moonloop". The latter is an edited and overdubbed version of a 40-minutes long improvisation recorded live at the Doghouse studio on 28 June 1994. The US version omits "Prepare yourself" but includes the track "Stars Die" instead. The two long title tracks are divided into shorter individual tracks on the US version and "Moonloop" is featured in an edited 8:11 minutes long version.

Because of the two pieces of the title track bookending the album comparisons to "Wish You Were Here (1975)" by Pink Floyd have often been made, and I agree to some extent as the most mellow, ambient, and spaced out sections of the tracks are clearly greatly influenced by mid-70s Pink Floyd. The more upbeat and busy middle section of "The Sky Moves Sideways Phase 1" is more similar to the sound of an act like Ozric Tentacles though. "Dislocated Day" is slightly harder edged and rocking, but still featuring relatively sedated vocals. But it´s the track on "The Sky Moves Sideways" mostly pointing towards future endeavors. "The Moon Touches Your Shoulder" is a mellow Pink Floyd influenced track ending on a louder slightly more heavy note. It seques directly into the short ambient instrumental "Prepare yourself", which again seques directly into the massive improvised jam track "Moonloop". It´s a very slow building ambient track and honestly it´s a bit uneventful and way too long for its own good. "The Sky Moves Sideways Phase 2", closes the original European version of the album. While it shares some of the themes from "Phase 1" it´s still quite a different sounding track. The Pink Floyd influence is there in abundance though. "Stars Die" which as mentioned above is only featured on the US version of the album, is a pleasant and mellow vocal/acoustic guitar driven vers/chorus structured psychadelic pop/rock track, featuring a melancholic and tranquil atmosphere, slowly building in intensity and volume to its climax. A guitar solo climax which could easily have been a little longer and added more depth to the track.

"The Sky Moves Sideways" is well produced, featuring an organic and detailed sound production, suiting the material perfectly, and upon conclusion it´s a quality release by Porcupine Tree. I personally find "Moonloop" unnecessarily long and a little tedious, but the remaining part of the album is great quality psychadelic/space rock loaded with slow building ambient sonic landscapes, organic rhythmic playing, mellow acoustic guitar chords, and soaring lead guitars, and when they occur the sedated and tranquil vocals of Wilson to provide a melancholic spice. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

PORCUPINE TREE Up The Downstair

Album · 1993 · Non-Metal

UMUR
"Up The Downstair" is the 2nd full-length studio album by UK progressive rock act Porcupine Tree. The album was released through Delerium Records in June 1993. It´s the successor to "On The Sunday Of Life..." from 1992. The predecessor was more or less just a collection of demo tracks frontman Steven Wilson had written and recorded during the late 80s/early 90s and it´s more a solo album than a full band effort. "Up The Downstair" is similar in the respect that it´s also more or less a solo effort by Steven Wilson who sings and plays most instruments, although future Porcupine Tree members Colin Edwin and Richard Barbieri guests on bass and keyboards respectively. The material on the album is not culled from any of the three pre-album demo releases that Wilson recorded in the late 80s/early 90s.

"Up The Downstair" exists in two significantly different sounding versions. The original version from 1993 which features programmed drums, and the 2005 double album reissue, which was partially re-recorded (featuring drum tracks recorded by then Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison), fully re-mixed, and remastered along with the 1994 "Staircase Infinities" EP. It´s two very different listening experiences as the original version suffers a bit from the artificial sounding drum programming, while the re-recorded version has a completely different organic feel to it. "Up The Downstair" was originally intended to be a double album release featuring the album material plus the "Voyage 34" single track and the material from the "Staircase Infinities (1994)" EP. So the reissue is probably a little closer to Wilson´s original vision, than the 1993 version of the album.

The material on "Up The Downstair" is psychadelic rock with ambient keyboards, soaring guitar leads and powerful rhythm playing, sound effects and samples, a driving organic beat, and Wilson´s melancholic restrained mellow vocals in front. The album feautures a coherrent musical style, which is a change from the eclectic debut album, and therefore "Up The Downstair" also feels more like a "real" album than the debut did. The album both features some relatively normal vers/chorus structured tracks (well...relatively), but also longer spaced out psychadelic jams (the title track for example features a style similar to contemporary Ozric Tentacles), so there is variation enough to the found on the album. The album is predominantly instrumental though, but the tracks featuring vocals like "Synesthesia", "Small Fish", and the absolutely stunning closing track "Fadeaway" mean a lot for the listening experience as a whole.

"Up The Downstair" is upon conclusion definitely a step forward for Porcupine Tree compared to the debut album. The original version as mentioned does suffer from featuring programmed drums, and I would strongly recommend purchasing the reissue version instead, and leave the few copies which still exist of the 1993 version for the hardcore collectors. I would probably have rated the original version with a 3 star (60%) rating but the 2005 reissue deserves a 3.5 star (70%) rating. This is one of the rare cases where a re-mixed and remastered version of an album truly makes sense.

PORCUPINE TREE On The Sunday Of Life

Album · 1992 · Non-Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"On The Sunday Of Life..." is the official debut full-length studio album by UK progressive rock act Porcupine Tree. The album was released through Delerium Records in May 1992. It was preceded by the two demo cassette tape albums "Tarquin's Seaweed Farm (1989)" and "The Nostalgia Factory (1991)" and the demo EP "The Love, Death & Mussolini (1990)". The material on "On The Sunday Of Life..." are culled either directly from those three releases, or are re-arranged, re-recorded, or otherwise edited (and even re-titled) versions of tracks from the three demo releases.

So if you´re familiar with the preceding demo releases, it won´t come as a surprise that "On The Sunday Of Life..." isn´t the most stylistically coherent release as Steven Wilson experimented greatly with both musical elements and production techniques in those years, and therefore you´ll be exposed to anything from droning ambient soundscapes, to driving psychadelic rock tracks and long jams, to spoken word sections, to samples, to comedy rock tracks featuring pitched helium mouse vocals, and all sorts of other musical elements. I guess it all falls under the psychadelic rock umbrella, but "On The Sunday Of Life..." is an album that´ll challenge most listeners not accustomed to very eclectic album releases or those preferring a body of recorded work in a coherrent style.

Wilson has tweaked the original recordings, made overdubs and remixes, and it´s audible that the sound quality is of a slightly higher quality on the album than the case were on the three demo recordings where the tracks are pulled from. The quality of the material is a bit up and down, but some of the highlights are "Jupiter Island", "The Nostalgia Factory", "Footprints", and "Radioactive Toy". Upon conclusion "On The Sunday Of Life..." isn´t the strongest nor the most promising debut album by Porcupine Tree, and it´s hard to know what to expect from the band on their next release (if we didn´t have the advantage of hindsight). In that respect it´s probably an album which left contemporary listeners a little confused. To me it has been a grower. I started out not appreciating the album much, but repeated spins have revealed at least a handful of good quality tracks and at least as many decent quality ones, and I´d say a 3 star (60%) rating isn´t all wrong.

PORCUPINE TREE The Nostalgia Factory

Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The Nostalgia Factory" (subtitled "...And Other Tips for Amateur Golfers") is the 3rd studio release by UK artist Steven Wilson under the pseudonym of Porcupine Tree. The album was released through Delerium Records in 1991. It was originally released in a limited number of copies on cassette tape and should probably be considered a demo album. Tracks 1 to 7, an edited version of "The Nostalgia Factory" and "This Long Silence", "Nine Cats" and "It Will Rain for a Million Years" were released on "On The Sunday Of Life... (1992)" (the official debut full-length studio album by Porcupine Tree). Tracks 1 to 7 and "It Will Rain for a Million Years" were all also featured on the 1990 "The Love, Death & Mussolini" demo EP (although the latter appear here in a much longer version). The only track from the EP which is not also featured on "The Nostalgia Factory" is "Out".

The short ambient intro "Hymn" seques into the delightfully dark and atmospheric "Footprints", and it´s interesting to hear a song from this early stage of Wilson´s career, which could well have been written much later and included on an album like "Signify (1996)" or maybe even "Stupid Dream (1999)". But the next track "Linton Samuel Dawson" is completely different and takes the listener into psychadelic comedy rock land, with Wilson´s vocals pitched to sound like a mouse singing. It´s a high energy track with a great positive energy, but...it´s not exactly great art. "And The Swallows Dance Above The Sun" opens with a sample and an energetic and busy programmed drum beat, which more or less continues for the duration of the track, with ambient keyboards, soaring lead guitar themes, and Wilson´s melancholic vocals fill the remaining part of the soundscape. Had the drums been played by a human being and had featured an organic tone, that track could have been a little more accomplished. It´s still a pretty great track though.

"The Nostalgia Factory" continues with "Queen Quotes Crowley", which is another ambient psychadelic track featuring omnipresent guitar leads by Wilson, while all sorts of studio experiments with volume and backwards recordings run in the back. "No Luck With Rabbits" is a short ambient transition track to "Begonia Seduction Scene", which is a beautiful track comprising acoustic guitar and some atmospheric lead guitar themes. About midway through the track it gets a little darker and the atmosphere changes towards the ominous. "Colours Dance Angels Kiss" is completely different from the dark and gloomy mood of the preceding track as it´s another comedy rock track in the vein of "Linton Samuel Dawson", although not quite as helium induced. "Prayer" is short ambient track leading into the longer "The Nostalgia Factory" title track. It´s a driving melancholic psychadelic rock song, featuring ambient looped synths, sound experiments, and Wilson´s pitched sedated vocals. It´s a track with a great atmosphere and loads of layers of different sounds. Definitely one of the highlights of this release. "The Long Silence" which follows is another. Had the drums not been programmed on this track it would sounded fully professional. Especially Wilson´s vocals feature a great sound production on "The Long Silence".

"Sinatra Rape Scene" is up next and it´s a short backwards recorded sound piece segueing into "Hokey Cokey", which is an ambient psychadelic rock track which slowly builds, and which features a rather humorous sampled section in the middle. "Landscare" is a slow ominous sounding drone piece sequeing into the short "Delightful Suicide" which is another ambient track featuring a little guitar and keyboards spicing up the track. "Nine Cats" follows and it´s a singer/songwriter type track opening with mostly acoustic guitar and Wilson singing before programmed drums and bass come in and the song becomes a little louder and soft rocking. It´s a nice melancholic pop/rock song and could have been featured on a mid-70 Pink Floyd album. "Split Image" is a sound collage type track building tension towards the closing track "It Will Rain For A Million Years", which is an ambient layered track featuring spoken words and subdued singing, soaring majestic lead guitar motifs, acoustic guitar and layers of keyboards. This version of the track is not the same as the version on "The Love, Death & Mussolini (1990)", as it´s 6 minutes longer than the original 4 minutes long track, making this version a 10 minutes long mammoth.

Upon conclusion "The Nostalgia Factory" is a good quality demo album, and it shows the many different aspects of 1980s/early 1990s Wilson. It can be argued that the demo is a bit redundant today as most of the material is featured on "On The Sunday Of Life... (1992)", but that´s of course not fair, and a demo shouldn´t be judged like that. As it is a 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

UMUR
"The Love, Death & Mussolini" is the second studio release by UK artist Steven Wilson under the pseudonym of Porcupine Tree. "The Love, Death & Mussolini" was released through No Man's Land in early 1990. It succeeds "Tarquin's Seaweed Farm" from 1989. The catalogue status of "The Love, Death & Mussolini" is a bit unclear as it has been called an EP, an album, and a demo by various souces. I´ll go with the latter as it was released in a very limited number of copies on cassette tape. Tracks 1 to 7 would be included on "On The Sunday Of Life... (1992)" (the official debut full-length studio album by Porcupine Tree).

"The Love, Death & Mussolini" features 9 tracks and a total playing time of 35:39 minutes, so while it is generally considered an (demo) EP it´s an almost album length long release. The short ambient intro "Hymn" seques into the delightfully dark and atmospheric "Footprints", and it´s interesting to hear a song from this early stage of Wilson´s career, which could well have been written much later and included on an album like "Signify (1996)" or maybe even "Stupid Dream (1999)". But the next track "Linton Samuel Dawson" is completely different and takes the listener into psychadelic comedy rock land, with Wilson´s vocals pitched to sound like a mouse singing. It´s a high energy track with a great positive energy, but...it´s not exactly great art. "And The Swallows Dance Above The Sun" opens with a sample and an energetic and busy programmed drum beat, which more or less continues for the duration of the track, with ambient keyboards, soaring lead guitar themes, and Wilson´s melancholic vocals filling the remaining part of the soundscape. Had the drums been played by a human being and had featured an organic tone, that track could have been a little more accomplished. It´s still a pretty great track though.

"The Love, Death & Mussolini" continues with "Queen Quotes Crowley", which is another ambient psychadelic track featuring omnipresent guitar leads by Wilson, while all sorts of studio experiments with volume and backwards recordings run in the back. "No Luck With Rabbits" is a short ambient transition track to "Begonia Seduction Scene", which is a beautiful track comprising acoustic guitar and some atmospheric lead guitar themes. About midway through the track it gets a little darker and the atmosphere changes towards the ominous. The 8:59 minutes long "Out" is up next, and it´s a hard rocking psychadelic rock song, featuring a driving rhythm and a middle eastern tinged lead theme. It´s like listening to Wilson playing Hawkwind or something in that vein. "The Love, Death & Mussolini" closes with "It Will Rain For A Million Years" which "Out" seques into. "It Will Rain For A Million Years" is an ambient layered track featuring spoken words and subdued singing, soaring majestic lead guitar motifs, acoustic guitar and layers of keyboards.

While not all tracks on "The Love, Death & Mussolini" are equally interesting or accomplished, the big difference between the material on "Tarquin's Seaweed Farm (1989)" and the material on this release, is the level of professionalism in both the musicianship and the recording techniques. It´s obvious Wilson was fast learning more about recording and also honed his skills as a musician. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.

Focusing on the more metal-oriented material from Deadwing and In Absentia - though notably steering it back in a more rock-oriented direction in order to allow this material to sit a little more comfortably beside the "indie prog rock" stylings of Stupid Dream, Lightbulb Sun and Recordings (picks from all of which surface here). Fans of their earlier psychedelic and space rock styles might be disappointed that those aren't represented, but on the plus side there's a liberal sprinkling of rarities here such as the glorious Buying New Soul as well as Revenant, So-Called Friend and Mother and Child Divided, those three songs having only appeared on various special editions of Deadwing. Not the definitive Porcupine Tree live experience, but a pretty decent one nonetheless.

Their heavy stuff is heavy enough for inclusion in the MMA. Note that the MMA is album-based, so, even though PT are not a metal band, they are included because of their metal-oriented albums. And I fully support their inclusion.

Their later stuff is heavier, but they are not really a metal band. Definitely worth checking if you are a fan of prog music though.
