Porcupine Tree: Up the Downstair LP
|Availability:||Out of stock|
1993's Up The Downstair was Porcupine Tree's second full album and the first to feature bassist Colin Edwin and (ex-Japan) keyboardist Richard Barbieri. This Steven Wilson remastered 180g 2LP edition of the album includes the re-recorded 2005 mix, retaining the beauty and feel of the original but allowing Wilson, the perfectionist, to brush up the elements he wasn't happy with in the original, in particular replacing the programmed drums with Gavin Harrison's live drum tracks. The new mix is accompanied here by the rare companion release Staircase Infinities EP. A brooding atmospheric epic, Up The Downstair delivers stunning experimental electronic, guitar-led space rock with a darkly melodic heart. Includes the classics "Burning Sky," "Up the Downstair," "Fadeaway" and "Always Never."
