This Moonloop release represents PORCUPINE TREE at their most "psychedelic". This is is as ambient, spacey, freeform as Steven Wilson gets. Maybe you're a fan of the style. There is no debating Wilson's considerable skills, as a performer and studio wizard. I would probably rather hear Wilson, and this is mostly Wilson whatever the label, play this than just about anybody else. But to be frank, there's very little metal or even hard rock here. Moonloop is just a little too self indulgent for me. Incidentally, get the version of this release that includes "Always Never", if you can. It's a fine track, that balances out the album as a whole. I understand that Wilson is a fan of Krautrock bands like NEU. If that's more your cup of tea than mine, you should definitely enjoy this.
