4 stars The special edition of OSI's debut adds a techno-trippy cover of Pink Floyd's Set the Controls For The Heart of The Sun. Interesting but inferior to all versions I've heard from Floyd and Roger Waters.

New Mama is the odd one out. It's a Neil Young cover with harmonic vocals that make it sound like Pure Reason Revolution, a band still non-existing around that time. Again it's interesting but not really overwhelming.

The last bonus is The Thing That Never Was, an obvious Metallica pun. It's a 17 minute instrumental ride through the riffs of the main album. Even the sequence in which the pieces are linked is the same as the running order on the album. Without the vocals something is missing here but still it's a great listen.

Interesting edition but nothing essential to spend extra money on. Apart from the beautiful artwork that is.

Bonnek | 4/5 |
