One of the best live albums from a modern rock group has been made even better with this remastered and expanded issue. Porcupine Tree are simply one of the best rock groups around. Their last studio album, “In Absentia” for Lava Records perfectly showcased the different styles which Steven Wilson has now brought to the group after many years of producing distinctive albums for the independent Delerium label. It’s for that label that Wilson is now upgrading his back catalogue, of which “Coma Divine” is the first release, though to date another two have been made available. This live album has now been expanded to a double CD with the addition of four extra tracks. Both the recording quality and band performance are exceptional. Live, Porcupine Tree are a very tight unit, though Wilson likes the band to vary the arrangements of the material to keep things fresh. Particularly impressive on this disc is keyboard player Richard Barbieri. On studio albums he mainly adds layers of atmospheric synths to the proceedings, but live he really comes to the fore with some great playing, adding new dimensions of sound to each track. Most of the material comes from the “Signify” album as the band were touring that during the recording of this live album. But there are some great energetic live interpretations of earlier material such as “Radioctive Toy” and “The Sky Moves Sideways”. This is a fantastic live document from a wonderful band that has so much to offer.
