Porcupine Tree
"... a psychedelic masterpiece ... one of the albums of the year." - Melody Maker "... their 1990s underground masterpiece Up the Downstair wooed Orb fans ..." - The Guardian Grammy-nominated British prog-rock act Porcupine Tree's 1993 sophomore release Up the Downstair was called "a psychedelic masterpiece" by Melody Maker and an "underground masterpiece" by The Guardian. Although leader Steven Wilson plays almost everything heard on the album himself, he is joined on the title piece by former Japan keyboardist Richard Barbieri.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
