4 stars This short EP is a great addition to any fan of modern progressive rock's collection. There are four songs each with its own identity and a different way of experimentation, so there really isn't a way to describe the album as a whole. This shows that modern progressive rock bands can still be creative without being completely avant-garde or out there.

"Anything" is probably the most standard song on Ameliorate, though that doesn't say much. It begins with a regular rock riff and flows like a reguar up-tempo rock song. However, eventually it begins exploring musically and goes beyond the expected, before finishing up in a standard outro.

"Impulse" is definetely the most fun song here. It begins with some cool riffs and chugging, until suddenly some odd times come in. The listener will be taken aback as he is subjected to a rapid change of different styles, including funk, ballad, mathcore, and pure prog. A great composition and a fun one, especially for those familiar with playing it on Guitar Hero.

"Sun of Pearl" is perhaps the strongest composition on Ameliorate. It begins with some great reverberated guitar picking and builds with a great energy and a strong atmosphere. It is also probably the most proggy sounding song on the EP, and above all is a great example of modern progressive rock.

The last song, "The Adventures of Jabubu" is likely to be neglected, as it is a short song at the end of the album with not much going for it. However, there are cool marimba sounds and some nice riffs on it, so it mostly serves as a good addition to an already excellent short collection of songs.

All in all, this is a good one to get. An Endless Sporadic may be one of the future modern prog bands to watch.
