5 stars I had mentioned after reviewing their third and final EP "Careful ! It's Tepid" that if I ever found this second EP I was going to put all three on one cd for one killer recording. Well Matt from the band read my words and was kind enough to send me this missing EP.This is the first time i've been sent music from a band who weren't expecting a review out of it. He just wanted me to have it. That certainly makes this cd special on it's own but add to the fact that I think this is their best EP and...well I feel really good right now. Rivertree (Uwe) had a challenge at the end of his review for this EP to private message him to tell him if he was wrong or not about the 4.5 star rating. I was the first to respond to that challenge and obviously I agree with his assessments. Maybe 4.5 stars is the proper rating but for me it's simply perfect from start to finish, I can give no less than 5 stars. By the way if the album cover was done by a Canadian band there would be eggs, toast, bacon and coffee. Just saying. It's cool to see that same plate inside the liner notes after the food has been eaten off of it, to see the faint picture of the debut album cover on it (the ugly nun).

"Double Egg" is a song that reminds me of when I was younger and i'd keep playing that hit song over and over.This is so good ! Nice guitar intro before the drums and bass arrive.Vocals before a minute. "Son Of Cheese" according to the band "expresses the terror of being stranded on a desert island with cheese as your sole food source". Bummer. It opens with water sounds before kicking into gear.This sounds amazing a minute in. It has to be heard to be appreciated. "Son Of Bassoon" features gorgeous piano melodies throughout. "Shatner's Bassoon" settles in before a minute then kicks back in as contrasts continue. I'm reminded of GENTLE GIANT and Zappa. Great sound 3 minutes in as the guitar lights it up.

If you can get your hands on any ANTIQUE SEEKING NUNS material don't even hesitate.
