About Court In The Act.

No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it. Let me know if any links are broken, I'll remove the post to prevent future annoyance, and will attempt to re-upload the file.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Porcupine Tree - Stupid Dream [1999]

If you've never heard of Porcupine Tree before, it's important to note that they essentially started out as "Pink Floyd 2". At least, that was frontman Stephen Wilson's initial vision. However in the late '90s, the band began to incorporate more elements of progressive metal in their sound. "Stupid Dream" then, it seems, was cut slap bang in the middle of this transition, making the best of both worlds.

The album kicks off with the mellow "Even Less", which is immediately followed by the catchy "Piano Lessons", arguably one of the most commercial songs the band has ever recorded. A combination of slow rockers and more upbeat songs (including a fantastic bassline at the beginning of "Slave Called Shiver") follows, resulting in a great album altogether.
