4 stars What the hell????? I guess all I can say here is that all that Steve Wilson and co. touch truly turns to gold. In some ways even superior to the last outing FOABP, at least in terms of total brevity, stylism, and progressiveness. I'm shocked that this is and EP and not a full scale record release. I guess I shouldn't be considering the talent of which I am speaking. Anyway if I must pick favorites I'd have to conclude the #1 slot goes to "Norma"l, I love the time change and thrash at the end of the 4 minute second and then the conclusion. "Cheating the Polygraph" is cool, probably my least favorite, although I love the ambience and spacey feel.The title track "Nil Recurring" has an incredible heavy vibe to it and the solo at the end (Frip I believe), is awesome. 2nd slot goes to "What Happens Now", just an overall awesome song, love the "Anesthetize" rythm in it too.......... Enjoy fellow proggers Wilson and Co. are truly the maestros of the modern prog scene.
