5 stars The Pirate Ship Quintet has easily become one of my favorite Post Rock due to this incredible EP. To put it simple I couldn't find a single flaw within these 3 magnificent post rock epics. Not to say the least TPSQ really manages to create great atmosphere, with intensive and yet sometimes headbanging rhythms.

Each song has its own distinct sound starting in a crescendo manner except for I Kina Spiser the Hund which quickly kicks it off with intensity. There's not much to say about each song since there usually you're typical post rock songs but with a much distinct sound, something most post rock bands fail to do nowadays. I really couldn't tell which one I liked the most since I liked them all so much but if I had to pick one I'd go for I Kina Spiser the Hund.

In overall this EP could easily be a Post Rock masterpiece standing right beside the music of post-rock giants such as GY!BE, Sigur Rós , Explosions In The Sky, Yndi Halda and others. The Pirate Ship Quintet is indeed an amazing band with a bright future.
