Nice little EP. There are some amazing moments, but the whole EP does not live up to this level which is kind of a shame.

The first song is a perfect example: begins wonderfully, but never recovers after the break that comes way too early to be effective in any way.

The description of the guitars is great: "sludgy and drawn out ... like a long winding road that never ends" - I love such guitars=)))

I agree with you, I wanted to like it, it put me in the right mood for that, and then, they completely changed direction and here you are getting a blast of BM that you didn't ask for...

They can keep all the elements, no prob with that, but it's the way they've been mixed together that isn't satisfying.

Yes, I was thinking the same things. The BM bits don't really work here, or something. It's brilliant in places but pedestrian in others. Pity, like you say, it starts off so promisingly.

Yeah, After a second listen, I can say it lacks just a bit something to make it big. A name to remember surely.
