3 stars The cover is nice, by the way.

Pink Mammoth (the song itself) is good, but not essential. Even though it's a typical Pelican's song, it's very predictable and unsurprising. City Of Echoes (the album) has the same atmosphere, but the songs on it are much more inspired and diverse. Well, Pink Mammoth is just an updated version of Mammoth from the first EP, so it seems to me that it's just an average post-metal song by Pelican. The second track on the EP is called End of Seasons and is concocted per se once again. It's a remix of Untitled and Aurora Borealis, with ambient sounds and noise added merely. A melting pot in short. Quite boring and incoherent, though.

Pink Mammoth is a very short EP, and to my mind 15 minutes was not enough for Pelican to write a new masterpiece. If you are a newbie, better try the splendid March Into The Sea EP.
