3 stars Two track EP lasting roughly a quarter of an hour, with both tunes in the Zeuhl/post rock mode, this time sounding more like Shub-Niggurath. Guapo is now only a duo with Daniel O'Sullivan playing all instruments except for drums and all percussions still handled by original Guapist Dave Smith. Both Heliotrope and Selenotrope are tracks of the same length and sound much the same, which is something find a bit odd since the former is about the sun (Helos) and the latter is about the moon (Selene), but ok, I'm not the artist. Both are slow-paced sinister/macabre marches through the gothic realms of Guapo's fantasy world. The usual stuff, except that the Magma-Zeuhl has disappeared for the Shub-Nig-Zeuhl. Up to you to see if it's worth it, but it's been a while since their last release.
