Product Description

'Voyage' 34 is one of the greatest space trips ever put on vinyl. This is Porcupine Tree at their most creative moment yet. 'Voyage 34' is really a story of a psychedelic trip told through a mind experiencing the finer points of LSD. The narration (which occurs throughout the trip) borders on total hilarity as the drug induced trip is detailed. The song writing here is actually incredible and flows nicely with the trance like hypnotic stages of the music. The guitar is superb and Steve Wilson borrows riffs from David Gilmour's book of guitar sounds.

Très bon album. une basse qui ressemble à une certaine chanson de Pink Floyd (on s'en plaint pas!) Album concept des plus surprenant. J'ai adoré, surtout phase 1. Si vous débutez avec PT commencez par des albums plus accessibles comme Fear of a blank planet, deadwing...du moins ceci à été mon cheminement avec eux et j'ai aimé mon voyage jusqu'à présent. J'adore ce groupe!

My review from the Previously released version Jan. 27 2005
By Kort - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Here is my review from the other Voyage 34: The Complete Trip:

This is great music, especially the first 2 phases. It is truly music that you can float away in, though the narrations are the one thing I could have done without. (Actually, I've grown to enjoy the narrations now.)

I concur with the other reviewers about the Pink Floyd sound. Just think of the guitar riff from Another Brick pt. 3 and the synths from Welcome to the Machine. Add a dash of the Orb a la the narratted parts and the mixing, and you have trip 34. As these long songs progress, the Floyd influence diminishes, but is still recognizable.

Since I love both groups, and The Porcupine Tree, I was quite happy with this recording. If you like any of them, I think you will be too. Definately best appreciated in a dark room on a good stereo played loud.

---

This is a re-released version of the now very expensive version I just reviewed. It looks to me like the only reason to get this if you have the other is for the new cover artwork and digipack format, and the music has been remasterd a 3rd and final time. I personally like the remastering on my Delerium copy so will stick with that one.

If you don't have this album yet, then by all means pick this one up for the better price and possible better sound quality. Look for their next full album, Deadwing, near the end of March.

** Hey Woofbear (Anthony), can you tell me anything about this new Warzawa CD? My email is at kramerkreationsdotcom. Thanks. :o) **

Is this trip really necessary? Yes July 8 2005
By J. Merritt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the wrong album for introducing yourself to Porcupine Tree; I'd go first to the compilation "Stars Die: The Delerium Years" or "Deadwing" for that purpose. However, once you're into the band, it's a must-own component of the back-catalogue.

Ya gotta love the sheer audacity of the concept: To provide a 64-minute soundtrack for a head trip. There are only four tracks, all of which are lengthy and bear no resemblance to typical song structures. They just meander all over the place, held together by a lick lifted directly from "The Wall" and interspersed snippets of dialogue from people who have taken LSD (or the researchers monitoring them). I enjoy Phase I the best, and it will be familiar to those who own "Stars Die," but this is not the kind of album you put on to hear individual tracks. It's not an album at all, in the traditional sense, but it is a concept album in the very best sense, one that would almost certainly make Pink Floyd proud.

Astounding March 24 2005
By Child of Bodom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is pure genius, there is not much more to say about it. Not only is the premise (To musically follow an acid trip) very intruiging but the music itself has gravity. It pulls you in and before you know it you can't turn it off. This is the mellow rock/ambient genre in it's perfect state. The songs are constructed in such a way that you as a listener can expirience everything the subject is. It makes it so the obscurities that an acid trip may bring on seem normal, just as they would if you were really on the drug. Anyway you look at it, this CD is great and if you enjoy porcupine tree, no-man or any other great ambient groups like godspeed you black emperor you MUST have this CD. It's definetly worth your money and time.

Swirly psychedelia Sept. 23 2005
By filterite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I got this on my travels in Finland and have been quietly impressed by the music on it. As has been mentioned here, Porcupine Tree seem to be the middle ground between The Orb and Pink Floyd which is no bad thing. The music is very light, airy and definitely trippy too ( without the need of any psychedelic drugs I may add too ). I quite enjoy the random dialogue snippets as this makes it seem/sound a bit more of a scientific experimentation set to music. If you do like your psychedelic music more musically trippy than lyrically - this is as good a place to go for your dosage.

letting the Floyd light shine Feb. 5 2009
By Scott Hedegard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Porcupine Tree fills a great gap for those hungry for more Pink Floyd, particularly the earlier works. "Voyage 34" is a tribute actually to Pink Floyd, as hints of "The Wall" and practically the whole catalogue from the David Gilmour era make no attempt to hide.
This is fine, because Porcupine Tree are an astonishingly brilliant band and can pull it off and still be themselves. No vocals except spoken word snippets are here, leaving the music to do the soothing, soaring, tripping and floating. Steve Wilson playfully recalls the main motif from Pink Floyd's "Run Like Hell" during "I", and Richard Barbieri provides keyboards and synths that proudly pay homage to Rick Wright, and since Wright's passing, it becomes a flattering tribute.
There are some weird moments throughout, but mainly we get an instrumental workout with washes of guitar and loads of effects. Is it trippy? Probably, but this fan has never imbibed, so to speak. Rather, "Voyage 34" recalls the best moments of Floyd, a little of Alan Parsons and PT's own signature sound for a CD that will have classic rock fans smiling and younger fans hearing a band that can create so many different moods over their several albums. Porcupine Tree deserve to be huge, and maybe they'll catch on in the U.S. like they have in Europe.
