Porcupine Tree — Waiting
(Delerium DELEC CDS049, 1996, CD)

by Peter Thelen, Published 1996-08-01

Waiting Cover art

This is Porcupine Tree's latest three-song CD EP, appropriately titled I suppose, while we are waiting for the release of their next full length CD Signify this coming fall. The music here is a further step onward from their last full length CD, which now seems to be more of a full band effort rather than simply one guy (guitarist/bandleader Steven Wilson) doing everything with overdubs. There is one vocal track ("Waiting - Phase 1") that incorporates some nice vocal harmonies over a strummy backing track with the patented gurgling guitar effects. The other two tracks ("Waiting - Phase 2" and "The Sound of No One Listening") are classic full throttle Porcupine Tree jamming, with more attention given to percussion than I've heard before. This one should certainly hold us over until the full CD arrives.
