Porcupine Tree - On The Sunday Of Life (1991)



Quite different to there later releases, "On The Sunday Of Life" is sometimes a long and sprawling unfocused affair with quirky and catchy songs amidst the more atmospheric pieces. Having said that though, this is the more progressive Porcupine Tree of yesteryear with little gems in there such as "Radioactive Toy" "Music For The Head" and "It Will Rain for A Million Years"

Besides some of it's faults this album is much more highly recommended for the more progressive rock minded.
