"Metanoia" is a limited edition compilation album by British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, first released on 10" double-vinyl in December, 1998, in a limited run of 1000 copies. It is mostly made up of improvisations recorded during the "Signify" sessions, some of which were later shaped into songs. To help deter secondary- and black-market sales, the album was released on CD in December 2001 and re-issued again in 2006.In a critical review on the album has been described as "in every way the antithesis of “Stupid Dream”, and simultaneously every bit as brilliant". A special recognition is given to Chris Maitland and Colin Edwin who show " a masterful display of finesse and energy". The album review is finalized with the highest recommendation to listeners.The original version of the CD has since been out-of-print. Copies of the original are considered to be quite rare and often go for a high price on online auctioning websites [ [ Expose Progressive Music web site: Issue #18 Extra!: New Releases] ] .The cover design was done by Carl Glover. All tracks were composed by Porcupine Tree [ [ Metanoia 2002: Album review and songs from] ] .
