3 stars This work sounds very shy in comparison with "De-Loused" which a brilliant ode to spectacular music. But of course, it is only an EP which sounds more experimental, improvised.

The long and spacey intro for "Cut That City", leaves the place to a mostly noisy vocal part which is rather annoying. Noise annoys, that's for sure.

Fortunately there is a great song also featured. "Concertina" is probably the only composition which is on par with their later "De-Loused". One gets these emotional vocals again (bilingual), and the fantastic rhythm changes not alien to some "Muse" songs. A very good and catchy (pop) song which is the only highlight.

The longer and closing "Eunuch Provocateur" is highly energetic, distorted, tortured, complex and amazingly wild and raw. In one word: a typical Mars Volta song. It would have gained in overall quality if the final part (three minutes) would have been cut.

Three stars for this good EP. But the best things are to come.
