On Stupid Dream? It didn't really have long songs, by PT standards.

I'd go with In Absentia as your next choice. The Sky Moves Sideways is incredible, but it's not the most accessible album for casual listeners, and therefore might be not be the best option for now.

Well, keep in mind that the actual album is not 2 hours long. It's a little under an hour. The two disc special edition includes material not on the album (Disc 2).

Good luck. I'm curious as to what happens.

I figured as much, and figured it would sound weird. I just felt, on first listen, that a couple of the tracks would have benefited from being more succinct.

I just consider it a double album.

By the way, a few days ago you asked if you could call me Andrew, and I totally missed the post until after you were long gone. Yes, you can.

Then, by all means, listen to In Absentia. Or maybe even Lightbulb Sun.

I decided, after Green Carnation, not to return to Porcupine Tree just yet--I'm listening to a Katatonia album first.

Anyway, I need to be getting back to work. I'll be back when it's lunch-break time!

That wasn't me.

Khan does it best anyway, so I'll leave that to her...
