Japanese edition of the 2021 Transmission reissue of Porcupine Tree's 1995 release The Sky Moves Sideways.
2CD in card sleeves within slipcase with obi strip.
Please note the CDs themselves are not Japanese-made.
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’s 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 CDs. 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 of the music from all of the previously versions and runs to 21 minutes).
