4 stars This EP is definitely good, but not great. The title track is fairly weak, despite some very quality contributions by Robert Fripp. Normal is the most powerful off the CD, featuring mostly acoustic guitar work, punctuated by sudden bursts of crazy drums and electric guitar at critical moments. Definitely worth the price of the album alone. Cheating the Polygraph and What Happens Now? are both smart tunes as well, replete with some of the best drumming Harrison's done for Porcupine Tree, aside from Fear of a Blank Planet itself. There is even some awkward time work in What Happens Now?, which is rather different for the band.

All in all, definitely a good place to go, a good album to buy, but a weak first track drags it down to just under four stars. Probably worth checking out simply for the drum work throughout.
