PORCUPINE TREE The Sky Moves Sideways 2CD


Out of stock

‘The Sky Moves Sideways’, regarded by many fans as one of the band’s finest releases, is a cornerstone of any Porcupine Tree collection. Recorded partly as a Steven Wilson solo project and partly as a full band album, it is a diverse experimental release spanning space rock and progressive rock styles with long guitar led, instrumental sections.

Disc 1 is the original album as conceived for vinyl. Disc 2 includes an alternative version of the title track containing music that was eventually cut from the original 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 the music from all the previously versions and runs to 21 minutes).
