4 stars The brevity of this album (19 minutes!) betrays the fact that this is already a band that is tiring of the Neo-Canterbury fun. Soon they'll be getting ready for the transition into the Neo Prog that will become their next incarnation as Sanguine Hum.

1. "Double Egg" (4:25) nice pop tune with quirky Canterbury-like lyrics and phrasing. (8.5/10)

2. "Son Of Cheese" (5:59) a bluesy opening with bluesy guitar betrays an odd song despite the Canterbury-esque singing and lyric. The chorus is good followed by some nice guitar, keyboard, and percussion work. Ends nicely with some cool upper octave vocalise. (8.25/10)

3. "Son Of Bassoon" (3:26) brilliant little Satie-like étude (10/10)

4. "Shatner's Bassoon" (5:19) a raunchy full-band, electrified, avant garde version of the "Son of Bassoon" étude. Works okay. (8.75/10)

Total Time: 19:09

B+/four stars; rated down for brevity (this is an EP).
