I heard Porcupine Tree for the first time a few years ago with their astonishing 'Deadwing'. Since then I've listened and bought everything I could lay my hands on and Porcupine Tree has grown to be one of my favourite bands. 'Fear of a Blank Planet' was a real treat and now we're getting the 'leftovers' that didn't make the record. Well, these so called leftovers are from such an amazing quality that every PT fan,or simply everyone who's into 'something more' than your average every day radio music, should buy this record. 'Nil Recurring' is the instrumental opener, a pure demonstration of PT's brilliant musicianship. In 'Normal' we can here some themes used in 'Sentimental' on 'Fear of a Blank Planet', but altogether a great track. 'Cheating the Polygraph', again a typical and very good PT song. But they saved the absolute best for last. 'What happens now' is a jawdropping track, a finetuned masterpiece where PT seems to have a patent for.
The only minor thing is that the record only lasts for about half an hour, but apart from that, 'Nil Recurring' is an absolute must, a small masterpiece of 'leftovers'.

I would highly recommend getting the 5.1 surround version of Fear of a Blank Planet (which includes all of the Nil Recurring EP in surround sound), if you have a 5.1 system. If you haven't get this, but you'll be missing out on the finest audio experience you will have all year.

Four stunning tracks, in no way poorer in quality than anything on FOABP. Highlight for me is Normal. But you really, REALLY deserve to hear it in surround sound.

Shocking that PT/SW doesn't get the recognition and plaudits they deserve. This is music at its best. Buy it. Tell your friends. :)

Despite being leftovers from the song-writing and recording sessions that spawned the excellent 'Fear of a Blank Planet' album, these songs are just as good as any from that album. Although the track-list consists of only four songs the run-time clocks in at a little under half an hour. The sound of this EP is very similar in style to it's album counterpart and compliments the album superbly. The lyrical themes from 'Fear of a Blank Planet' are prevalent in this album yet each of the four songs here add something new and fresh to the bands vast catalogue of work.

After the impact that 'Fear of a Blank Planet' made, the band were dismayed by the luke-warm commercial success of this release. The band believed that the public felt this EP did not garner the same respect that a full album might've. When their follow-up album 'The Incident' was released, the band decided to release their additional material as a separate disc sold alongside their main album. This EP was also released as part of the vinyl copy of 'Fear of a Blank Planet' , further supporting the bands opinion that this EP is of equal strength to their better known album material.

At a mere half an hour, this might seem slim pickings. But it is Porcupine Tree, who were arguably the least known best band in the world until they wound down a couple of years ago.
The title song is vintage Tree, with both Steven Wilson and guest guitarist Robert Fripp weaving webs of wonder with each other.
Normal is another superb track. Wilson is such a fine songwriter - before you even get to the dynamics of the band, Gavin Harrison's tremendous drumming, Colin Edwin's investigative bass or Richard Barbieri's always inventive keyboard work.
These are four unreleased tracks from the sessions for the Tree's marvellous Fear of a Blank Planet album - a blank planet being a typical fear of Wilson's if his lyrics are anything to go by, and they should be since he's that rare rock lyricist, one whose words don't appear less than inspired on the printed page/booklet.
I'll play this as much as their longer, fully realised albums, just as I will their disc of miscellaneous 'Recordings' which I got at the same time as this. Both are essential additions to the Tree catalogue, precious fruit from the glorious, post-Lapsarian cactus tree.

Nil recurring, but much happening.

Porcupine Tree - Nil Recurring (Peaceville)
A 4 track, 29 minute mini-album from the cult progressive outfit. 2007's `Fear Of A Blank Planet' won oodles of critical acclaim for its heaviness and structure, and it's no finer compliment to say that these tracks originate from the same sessions. But don't go thinking that these are yesterday's leftovers, warmed up and served as fresh - `Nil Recurring' is on a par with their previous effort. Incidentally, Robert Fripp shows up for some lead guitar duties, but doesn't distract from the hard riffing and sonic landscapes for which the band have become known. 8/10.

One word: Magnificent.

Steven Wilson must be the world's most underrated songwriter. His output via Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, No Man etc, simply proves how versatile and prolific he is. I can't think of any other artist that cuts across so many musical styles and maintains such quality.

Any of these tracks would have graced FOABT. Perhaps they should have released a double album.

This mini album is one of my favourite recordings from Porcupine Tree. The only regret that Steven Wilson could have added a few more good songs to make this a full album. There is not a dud track on this mini album. This is one of those CDs that sounds better 'loud'. Some brilliant guitar work from Steven Wilson with a cameo from the prog master Robert Fripp is a highlight.
