Editorial Reviews

Two CD edition. Signify, released in 1996, was the first full album from the British Prog/Art rockers recorded as a full band. The album blends together numerous Rock and avant-garde styles, while absorbing many diverse influences but relying on none. Signify is regarded by the band (and many fans) as one of their finest works and established the band as a highly respected force in the musical underground. The first single from the album, 'Waiting', entered the UK Indie and UK national chart attracting airplay all over Europe. This special edition features a complete bonus album called Insignificance that was previously released as a fan club cassette in an edition of only 500 copies. K-Scope. 2009.

Format:Audio CD
THE BAND: Steve Wilson (lead vocals, guitars, mellotron, keyboards, samplers & tapes), Richard Barbieri (keyboards, synthesizers & sequencers), Colin Edwin (bass), Chris Maitland (drums & percussion).

THE DISC(S): Originally released in 1997, this revised and remastered foldout digi-pak 2-disc set released in 2004. 22 songs clocking in at approximately 108 minutes (the original 12-track album is disc-1 at approximately 62 minutes, and the 2nd (bonus) disc titled "Insignificance" at approximately 46 minutes). Included with the discs is a 6-page booklet containing songs titles/credits, song lyrics, musicians, and odd pictures. The "Insignificance" disc is a selection of Wilson demos that includes several tracks that were not recorded for the final "Signify" album, as well as formative versions of some that were. Label - Snapper Music.

COMMENTS: This was my first disc from Porcupine Tree. I like it a ton, but it's definitely not my favorite (favorites include "In Absentia", "Stupid Dream", Lightbulb Sun" and "Deadwing"), but absolutely essential in their catalog of must-have albums. Some great songs here... the best in my opinion are the "Sleep Of No Dreaming" (dark, moody, wonderful), the opening jam "Signify", "Waiting Phase 1" followed by the instrumental "Waiting Phase 2", and the 8 minute album closer "Dark Matter". More than other recent Tree albums, "Signify" features many (6) instrumentals. Some being minute-and-a-half synthesizer experiments, while others being full blown 6-7 minute jams... the best being "Intermediate Jesus", "Idiot Prayer" and the title track. The soft acoustic "Every Home Is Wired" is a gem of a song too (with futuristic words from Wilson about the home PC). The bonus disc is a nice addition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Band In The World! December 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps saying Porcupine Tree is the 'best band in the world' is a little strong; they have some pretty strong competition out there. And I didn't say the best band of all time, because someday, perhaps somebody better will emerge. But if you are a fan of progressive, thoughtful, briliantly executed and flawlessly produced music, you will do no better than PT.
The early albums, ON THE SUNDAY OF LIFE, and VOYAGE 34, THE COMPLETE TRIP are very psychodelic in nature, evoking LSD trips and magic mushroom imagery, (I'm guessing, as I've never actually done that myself). Inevitable comparisons with Sid Barret and early Pink FLoyd will be made. In fact, the specter of Pink Floyd will follow PT's work through much of their catalog, including UP THE DOWNSTAIR, never more evident than in THE SKY MOVES SIDEWAYS, and up to SIGNIFY. It should be stressed that PT is not a clone band, trying to be like.... Steven Wilson has a unique and distinctive style that blends many influences, from techno dance, space ambient, progressive blues, and alternative rock; into absolutely brilliant compositions. The later albums, STUPID DREAM and LIGHTBULB SUN move the band further away from their influences and into their own catagory, by which other bands eventually will be compared.
I have been searching for a great contemporary progressive band for years; many of the offerings out there are good, but leave me unsatisfied and wanting more. Marillion, Spocks' Beard, Dream Theater, Flower Kings, etc... all good bands who, for me seem to fall just short of the mark. The old standard bearers like Yes, Roger Waters, King Crimson and Jethro Tull are still making some very good music (or releasing the same old music, like Floyd), but they don't seem to be able to capture the sparks that made them great way back when.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Cool March 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I think I misunderstood what art rock meant, or could mean, until I listened to Porcupine Tree. While art rock may call to mind groups like Yes, King Crimson, the Moody Blues and other early progressive rock groups, there was a certain pretension and bombast to their work that often made you wonder whether the heavy music was overdone just to show you how awesome rock music could be (I love these groups, by the way). Porcupine Tree has some music that approaches bombast, and yet their focus is on the art of music. Through more than a decade of sculpting music they have yet to succumb to the dark side of rock (commercialism), keeping true to their musical vision in spite of mediocre sales.

"Signify" is somewhat different from the two previous Porcupine Tree CDs I have reviewed, the incredible "In Absentia" and the excellent "The Sky Moves Sideways." The latter album is focused on psychedelic instrumentals; vocals, though infrequently used, are well done. The former album I consider to be one of the best rock albums I have ever heard, and the best progressive rock album I have ever heard. "Signify" seems to be a combination of genres, with more standard rock elements than either of these two albums, yet combining highly surreal poetry with the music. There are still sufficient musically interesting elements for most progressive rock fans, but only four of the twelve tracks are beyond six minutes. One should not be misled by the length, however, as some tracks feed the next track.

This CD opens with "Bornlivedie," an instrumental track with a voiceover that invites you to sit back and enjoy the music.
