From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars I actually saw this on prog archives and dismissed it initially because I couldn't find it anywhere. Then later by accident I found it, digital only, on Phideaux's bandcamp site.

As someone else stated, it's not exactly fitting to give something that isn't an album a masterpiece rating, but this collection truly houses some amazing tracks and is nearly worthy of that rating. Tempest of Mutiny, Strange Cloud, and Out of the Angry Planet are all faster paced lively rock songs comparable in sound to some of the album Number 7. The two previously released tracks, Chupacabras and Thank you for the Evil, are both newly modified versions and definitely worth a listen. The lyrics and style of 'Snuff' make me feel like it is part of the Doomsday trilogy, even though I know it isn't. The Wind Never Dies reminds me a bit of Infinite Supply from Number 7, just because it's mainly Phideaux's voice accompanied by piano playing. While this does give an idea of what to expect, the comparisons I mentioned are only a rough basis. This collection is in no way extinct from new ideas as I sometimes see happening with bands towards their later releases. If you're eager for Infernal to be released, then this should be more than enough to tide you over. Highly recommend this for fans of Phideaux.
