Background: Originally released in 1993, Up the Downstair was the second album by Porcupine Tree. The album received relatively little notice at the time and did not sell well.
Up the Downstair feels noticeably different in tone from On the Sunday of Life — the humor is nearly invisible, if present at all, and the focus is more explicitly up to date in keeping with Steven Wilson’s long-stated belief that progressive music means incorporating the now instead of rehashing what progressive was. His singing is now more accomplished in turn — it sounds like he might have been taking a lesson or two from his No-Man partner Tim Bowness, but he has his own dreamy approach. His already accomplished studio work seems to have turned even more so with time, and the end result is a delicate, complex, and remarkable effort.
