Compiled and remastered by Steven Wilson, Stars Die is a mid-price double cd collection of the best of Porcupine Tree's early years.
 
--------- 
 
Stars Die traces Porcupine Tree's evolution from 1991 to 1997 and is a perfect introduction for the curious as well as a choice collector's piece for the diehard fan. 
 
The collection chronicles the history of the band from Steven Wilson's Psychedelic, one-man-band origins to the group's evolution into influential atmospheric, Progressive Rock icons. 
 
Alongside a selection of tracks from all the official early albums, the compilation contains nine rare tracks that are either exclusive on CD to Stars Die or were released on now out-of-print EPs (such as Moonloop and Staircase Infinities). 
 
2016 remaster in digipak including extensive liner notes and quotes from Porcupine Tree members.
