3 stars A varied disc from varied bands.

Two very different, yet unique bands offering a split album which has Mia at the forefront singing in a main role for the first time. Kayo Dot's section is confusing in the least, and very King Crimson like in terms of structure and chaos.

Mia's vocals are a stark contrast to Toby's and very odd to hear. It's not exactly angelic. I personally don't find it to fit well either, though I think I can understand why Kayo Dot had her sing there, as an attempt to create more chaos/confusion in the metamorphoses of their sound, but I really don't find it to work well. It's not a poor track, but certainly not as good as some of their other material. It is quite different, and shows that the band will continue to head in new and different directions.

Bloody Panda is a band I was initially not aware of, and is doom music with a kick. It is monotonous to a degree, and the vocals, for whatever reason, remind me of the boy in Empire of the Rising Sun. It is subtle in many areas, although I much prefer Kayo Dot's half of the release.

Another project from one of the most creative bands around today. What do you have to lose? Pick it up.
