This was a really good EP. It really only suffers from being more of the same from 'Up The Downstair' and because there was nothing on it that stood out really, although I have really come to like the track 'Rainy Taxi'. If you like 'Up the Downstair', then you're sure to have the same feelings about this one. All of the tracks are instrumental except for 'The Joke's On You'.

Wilson once again improves on the ambience and texture on all the songs. The samples and atmosphere on this EP are better than anything Porcupine Tree related, in my honest opinion. The guitar on this is once again, very Gilmourish, but Steve is ripping off David in his best moments, because they are quite good.

Not much to say then what has already been said about 'Up the Downstair'. This is a great EP but I am a little biased towards them. I find it hard to spend a decent amount of money buying a CD with 5 songs when just a little extra can get you a full-length album. A good EP by any measure, but I would still rather get a full LP.
