3 stars Ok, this was the bonus disc along with Up The Downstair, but I might as well do a review of this.

This has an almost similar style than Up The Downstair, with the weird psych prog with long drawn out ambient like instrumentals. There is only one song with words on this, so this whole e.p is basically instrumental.

1. Cloud Zero - Nice blues like intro. Amazing instrumentation.

2. The Joke Is On You - Is it me, or does Steven's voice sound quite weird in this song. Quite catchy to be honest. The ambient section sounds a lot like William Orbit, basically very beautiful.

3. Navigator - Reminds me on No-Man. I love the tribal drums and percussion.

4. Rainy Taxi - Very beautiful with some nice organ parts.

5. Yellow Hedgerow Dreamscape - An alternate version of this song. The intro reminds me of horror scores. This song goes on a bit to be honest. A weird Porcupine Tree instrumental basically.

CONCLUSION: More of an add on, not essential, but quite enjoyable. Buy Up The Downstair re-master, this comes with it.
