Long-running progressive rock act Porcupine Tree, fresh off of their critically-acclaimed FEAR OF A BLANK PLANET, continue their grand experiment on the hallucinogenic and at times fearsomely heavy NIL RECURRING. A 29-minute, four-track mini-album, NIL RECURRING features the immediately recognizable talents of King Crimson legend Robert Fripp on the title track--a twisting, hypnotic perpetual motion machine with sinuous rhythms and stainless steel guitars that would do Helmet proud. Elsewhere, the Eastern-tinged second track, "Normal," mixes wonder and delicacy with more guitar heroics. NIL RECURRING is a prime display of prog's simultaneous elasticity and rigid discipline.
