This is an amazing debut album and it was strong enough to get them a gig at RoSfest. The lead singer at this time channels the voice of Paul Carrack. The song Pttee is a whimsical song full of Porcupine Tree licks and well they translate well into this fun and crunchy song. The rest of the album is above average rounded off by the sad Half Way Home which was written about an expected mother who stopped taking her anti-depressants because she didn’t want to effect the fetus, but tragically she killer herself on a bridge half way home.
