Guest review by

I like to think of this album as a playground, where the childhood of Porcupine Tree, who would become a prominent player in modern progressive music, was spent enjoying the freedom and luxuries of youth. There are no expectations, this is simply a free form expression of some the elements which Steven, who is taking full control in this solo effort, would capitalize on and form the basis of the band's music for years to come.

Rating: 6 A very weird album, and obviously porcupine tree's weakest one. It still has some outstanding tracks such as 'Nostalgia Factory' and 'It will rain for a million years', but ultimately this album is ruined for the most part with filler material.

Rating: 8 Do not agree at all. Most of the tracks, even the weird ones, speak to me somehow. Very underrated album anyway.

Rating: 4 This is irritating, just a nuisance..

Rating: 7 It's a mess, but there are some very good songs here. And as an album it creates its own little world. I agree that it's underrated.

  Brilliant album. Very fresh, interesting, varied and quite interesting to see the nascent mind of a prog genius. Radioactive Toy is also a standout track here.

  Nine cats but the majority of albums is annoying, maybe good if you're high but not more...

Rating: 5 A good way to spend 75 minutes... NOT.
