4 stars One of the essential parts of the band's catalog. Based around a Black Sabbath inspired riff, the five parts flow effortlessly throughout the track's 18 minutes. The entire track is up there with the band's better material lyrically as well as musically. Certainly not flawless, but one of the more worthwhile EP's I've listened to.

Recommended to any fan of The Decemberists, as well as anyone into the Prog Folk sub-genre here looking for something different. Assuredly one of their best tracks. However a better starting point for this band would be either Picaresque or The Crane Wife.

Speesh | 4/5 |
