Description

MID-PRICE REISSUE OF PORCUPINE TREE'S SECOND STUDIO ALBUM 'UP THE DOWNSTAIR'. FEATURING A NEW REMASTER BY STEVEN WILSON FOR THE FIRST TIME ON CD

"the spiritual heirs to Pink Floyd, the Tree offer a magical kaleidoscope of elegant rock pleasure, showcasing understated rhythm, grand synth washes and sweet, punchy electric guitar" Record Collector

Porcupine Tree, led by visionary musician Steven Wilson, released 'Up The Downstair' in 1993 as an album that took British psychedelic and progressive rock in to the modern era, dropping the indulgent nature of the genres for forceful, emotive music.

Following the now sold-out first box set of Porcupine Tree's 'Delerium Years', and the near sold-out second box set, Kscope are re-releasing the band's records from the era, including 'Up The Downstair', as a series of mid-price CDs. This version uses real drums (played by Gavin Harrison) in place of the original sampled drums, and features the tracks remastered by Steven Wilson in 2016 with more naturalistic dynamics and EQ - remasters previously only available on vinyl. It will be presented in a digipack packaging complete with an 8-page booklet.

Steven Wilson is currently enjoying global success with his fifth solo album 'To the Bone', which soared to #3 in the UK Album Charts and to #2 in the German Album Charts, as well as an extensive worldwide tour.
