While recording their "Signify" album, Porcupine Tree recorded improvisations when they had free time in the studio. The result is an album that's good to own but one that doesn't get played very often.
The best song is "Mesmer II," which ranks up alongside Porcupine Tree's best instrumentals. Steven Wilson's guitar work in this song is great, and the song has an amazing and slightly depressing atmosphere.
The bass sound throughout the album is incredible. Colin Edwin comes up with dozens of great bass lines and is clearly audible at all times.
The biggest problem is that most of the songs are too repetitive, but the album does function greatly as background music -- which is a contrast to the rest of the band's music, which requires one's full attention. It's still a worthwhile release, especially to fans of "Signify" and "Up the Downstair." Recommended.
