About this album

On The Sunday Of Life is the debut album of English progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, first released in July, 1991. It compiles tracks that Steven Wilson produced and recorded for two cassette-only releases, Tarquin’s Seaweed Farm (1989) and The Nostalgia Factory (1990).

This first real album contained a lot of peculiar material, but also tracks that would grow to be among the group’s classic songs (particularly “Radioactive Toy”).

Most of the lyrics were written by Alan Duffy, a school friend with whom Steven Wilson had lost touch a few years before the album was released.

    This album is slightly... scary. Space Transmission and Queen Quotes Crowley are really terrifying. Nevertheless, very interesting record. Young Steven's voice is awesomely cute. His looks too.

    Nine cats and Radioactive Toy sure are good, but in the end this album is just childish experiments and garbage.

    Very underrated masterpiece. Different from the other PT albums but in such very intriguing and pleasing album to listen. But it requires sense of humor.

    Really weird, but a good listen. I don't know why people dismiss it so easily. You can see Wilson's many influences and musical prowess in this album. It is a bit long but the compositions are excellent.

    truly masterpiece of psychedelic music. brilliant tracks like space transmission and self destructing turnip are not really music but they are so important for the album as a whole. they put the true spirit and mystery in it.
