Having recently announced that Snapper Music will be representing Porcupine Tree’s Transmission label worldwide, new CD and LP reissues of the band’s catalogue will roll out throughout 2021.
‘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.
Following the now sold-out LP box sets of Porcupine Tree‘s ‘Delerium Years’, Transmission are re-releasing the band‘s records from the era, including ‘The Sky Moves Sideways’, as a series of mid-price CD’s. Wilson specially remastered the album for the first ‘Delerium Years’ LP 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. 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).
This version will be released as a mid-price double CD in a 6-panel digipack.
DISC 1 1. The Sky Moves Sideways (Phase One) (18:39) 2. Dislocated Day (05:24) 3. The Moon Touches Your Shoulder (05:40) 4. Prepare Yourself (01:58) 5. The Sky Moves Sideways (Phase Two) (16:48)
