As most of the singles/EP this is just a glimpse of what their full album really is. There are some singles i have that are more an EP with 5 or more songs, and some of them even 30 or more minutos long. Unfortunately this is not the case, having only 2 songs, "Stranger By The Minute" and is actually an edit, shorter than the original version from STUPID DREAM.

The other song is "Even Less pt. 2", which is the final part of the version on SD, and if you have heard the long version of this song which comes in the album RECORDINGS, this is the ending section from minute 7 on.

The highlight is the video of Piano lessons, entertaining but also too short. Filmed in the artistic way the do most of their artwork and has some fun moments with the members of the band, it shows also some ballerinas and the character of the original cover of STUPID DREAM.

As said before, this cd is too short, being only 14 and a half min. including the video. I liked it though but is far to be an excellent addition to a prog collection. So i think 3 stars would be a good rating for it.

Viva el Prog!
