Disc one is a completely remixed and partially re-recorded version with the sampled drums replaced by the real drum performances of Gavin Harrison, recorded in 2004. Disc two is a remastered version of the mini album containing left over material from the original Up the Downstair sessions.

NB: The LP version of this remaster contains an additional bonus track "Phantoms" (3:15) on the 'Staircase Infinities' disc at the end of side 3.

Comments

level   (90/100)
druhé album je podarenejšie, nápaditejšie a je zbavené zbytočnej vaty. Štýlovo ja viac v progressive rocku (dosť ovplyvneného skupinou Pink Floyd, čo je len pozitívne), doplneného o atmosférické a experimentálne pasáže
level   (90/100)
이들의 초기작도 훌륭하다.
