It's challenging Piano Lessons for the title of my favourite Porcupine Tree song.


Great minds think alike.

Disappear is also an incredible song.

For most bands, Recordings would be considered their masterpiece ...

Listen to Fear next, and then you'll be caught up with everything from Stupid Dream on (except for the Recordings compilation).

After that, you can go back to the Stupid Dream/Lightbulb Sun era and listen to Recordings (which has songs that didn't make those albums). It's worth listening to just for the full version of Even Less and Buying New Soul.

Then there's quite a bit from the earlier era to still check out. I'd probably go with Up The Downstair at some point. It has one of my favorite songs from those years on it - Fadeaway.
I've got everything from that site downloaded. I was gonna go FOABP, then Recordings, then Signify, then Stars Die, then Up the Downstair (and no order yet for after that).

I downloaded from somewhere, but I have no idea where.

You won't need it anyway, because the other two songs are located elsewhere on that link.

Ambulance Chasing is on Recordings, and Wake As A Gun is on Insignificance (also part of the Signify deluxe version).

Maybe he should have... uhm... mixed it well then?

Ah yes, forgot about Disappear.

Without a doubt, the three best songs on Recordings.

I'm listening to it now.

I fell through a hole in the floor
The audience cried out for more
Fadeaway
It's just another day ...

All I really want is the Piano Lessons single version--and I just realized that I don't have it anymore because I did a great DI purge of all the stuff I already "had" and thought it would've been on the site. I guess I'll go download one of your links again for it.

Stars Die is just a compilation of songs from the regular early albums, with a couple of rarities. Might as well hold off on that one.

I'm also pretty fond of In Formaldehyde.

Yeah, I agree; going straight from Signify to Up The Downstair would be a smart move in my opinion.

It took me a while to get into Signify. Now I wonder why. Waiting, Sever, Every Home Is Wired, and Dark Matter are amazing. I was really impressed at how well the band did Dark Matter live. Especially in Brisbane, SW did the "crushed like a rose in the river flow/I am, I know" part beautifully.

It's one of the ones I've already got in iTunes, though, and I wanna get through everything I've already added before I unzip more. Meticulous? Yes.

Signify is the one album that I don't have the physical CD for yet. I've been collecting them as I go, and while I've got it downloaded, I want the physical copy. The artwork and notes on the deluxe editions are fantastic.

And the new deluxe edition of Lightbulb Sun is out soon.

When I listened to Sirius more (before the iPod took over), that was one of my favorite stations.
