Porcupine Tree - The Sky Moves Sideways
A standalone Transmission release for the 2016 Delerium Years box set edition of The Sky Moves Sideways.
Double 180g vinyl in gatefold packaging featuring Steven Wilson's Delerium Years remaster.
Regarded by many fans as one of Porcupine Tree's finest releases, the album was recorded partly as a Steven Wilson solo project and partly as a full band album. Spanning Space Rock and Progressive Rock styles, the music is dominated by guitar led, instrumental sections.
The Sky Moves Sideways was the first Porcupine Tree album to be released in the US (albeit with an altered track list), and the first on which Porcupine Tree was actually a band rather than simply a pseudonym for Steven Wilson. This transition took place while the album was being recorded, so two of the tracks – namely “The Moon Touches Your Shoulder” and “Dislocated Day” – are performed entirely by Wilson, while the full band appears on the remainder of the album (including “Stars Die”, a UK single which was added to the US version of the album). In 2004, a new, two CD version of the album was released, featuring newly recorded drums by Gavin Harrison on these two tracks.
