1995 Album Remastered On Double LP!

The Sky Moves Sideways is the third studio album by Porcupine Tree, first released in February 1995. It's the first Porcupine Tree album to be released in the US (albeit with an altered tracklist) and the first one to feature Porcupine Tree as a band rather than simply a pseudonym for Steven Wilson.

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

The album is now being reprinted in a gatefold sleeve and presented with Steven Wilson's sonically superb 2016 remasters first heard in the Delerium Years box set. 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. This edition also contains EP tracks "Stars Die" and "Moonloop" (the edit presented here is a hybrid which contains all the music from all the previous versions and runs at 22 minutes).

A dreamy, tranquil & heavily atmospheric effort
