Product Description

Product Description

New Kscope edition of the classic Porcupine Tree album. The Sky Moves Sideways is regarded by many fans as one of Porcupine Tree's finest releases and a cornerstone of any Porcupine Tree collection. Recorded partly as a Steven Wilson solo project and partly as a full band album, The Sky Moves Sideways is a diverse experimental rock release spanning space rock and progressive rock styles with long guitar led, instrumental sections. This special edition is expanded into an epic double CD. The first CD is the original album as conceived for vinyl but with real drums replacing the sampled drums on Dislocated Day and Moon Touches Your Shoulder. The second CD includes an alternate version of the title track that contains music that was eventually cut from the final album version, as well as different lyrics. It also contains EP tracks Stars Die and Moonloop (the edit presented here is a hybrid which contains all of the music from all of the previously versions and runs to 21 minutes).

Three months ago I hadn't heard of Porcupine Tree. Today I received my 11th Porcupine Tree album & what a sad moment it turned out to be. Since 1995 this album has been around in one form or another & I had never heard a note of it. Today I heard it, SCRUB THAT, I experienced it, a sonic marvel. Steven Wilson (Production & Mixing Wizard) not only played on it, wrote it, produced & mixed it, he recorded it at No Man's Land Studio in his hometown of Hemel Hempstead, the place I've called home for the past 56 years, since moving from London age 4. The only things Hemel has been famous for in the last 100 years are a Stupid roundabout & the biggest Explosion in Britain in peace time, neither of which are anything to boast about, but now we have Steven Wilson and no one seems to know. But I digress, back to the album.
This album hints at many influences but never seems to copy them. The music moves from mellow to outright deafening yet you can discern every note. The tracks are real 70's progrock, upto 35 mins long, just how they should be. For me this is a true masterpiece, straight into my top 10.

Thank You PORCUPINE TREE

This album is the main reason for PT being called a "prog-rock" band. The title track instantly reminds of Pink Floyd (I consider this album a twin brother of "Wish You Were Here", also due to the song layout); however, the band shows their own specific sound in other songs ("Moon Touches Your Shoulder" has a dark depressing feel that has almost become PT's trademark). A must for all fans of mid-70s Floyd.

Steve Wilson's third release under the Band Name of Porcupine Tree, and their first proper band album.
With this record they finally get away from the Pink Floyd similarities and start creating superb progressive music in their own right.
Please check out their other 9 albums and Steve Wilson's four solo releases, all are superb.
Stunning and very highly recommended.

Amazing album. Another gem by one of my favourite prog bands. This remastered LP sounds amazing. Steven Wilson did a great job remastering the album. Recommended for every Porcupine Tree fan. Its got a very psychedelic feel to it. Mind-blowing !!!

Porcupine tree the sky moves sideways
Scope edition with bonus CD
Disk 1
I love the title track off this album which is a 35 min track that is split in 2 witch half has allot of change and both has a vocal in a way side one has Steven Wilson singing and part 2 has a woman. Both parts are amazing and are nice to listen to. I can listen to both parts over and over again I like them that much. Tracks Desolate days and the moon touches your shoulder I do like but there not s memorable as the sky moves sideways but are good to listen to and its good as it breaks the album up a little. The track Prepare yourself is ok not my fav but it is full of guitar and an instrumental.
disk one is the same layout to pink floyd wish you were here with the long track spread at the beggining and end of the album with outhere songs in the middle. the way this is layed out will have been because to be fit on the LP the title track is too long for one side.
Disk 2
The sky moves sideways (alternative) is very similar to that off disk one with different lyrics and small parts different the only difference is it is the whole song not split into 2 like disk one so it is good as it means you can listen to the whole thing without much change. Stars die is a superb track and one of my favourite from the second disk. Moon loop is good but is slower in pace and is very soft to begin with.
The artwork
The artwork is cool as the cover is a bit weird with the telephone box in the middle of nowhere surrounded by large rocks and cliffs with the clouds in the background. Underneath each disk is an image if the clouds and hills and one of I believe Wilson standing by the sea.
