3 stars Not prog, but great if you like early Anathema.

An amazing EP, though the length is that of an entire album. "Kingdom" starts the album with a classic epic song that's very emotional and the guitar melodies are excellent. "Mine is Yours to Drown In (our is the new tribe)" is an excellent song and being very dark. "We, the Gods" is another Anathema classic. Being perhaps their longest song recorded, the lyrics are great and the guitar work is again, mesmerizing. The Cavanagh's really established themselves as a force after this album. There aren't many metal albums that have guitar work as unique to the music as this, it's entirely Anathema's sound. "Pentecost III" is a spacey and doom ridden intrumental. "Mementor Mori" is the only song on the album that feautres Darren White's old vocal style, it had improved on this song. Memento Mori means "remember you must die." Good song, but needs to grow on you. There's also two hidden tracks after "Memento Mori." "Pentecost III" is a great starting point for earlier Anathema albums, though it wouldn't be able to surpass the next album "The Silent Enigma."

Highly recommended: "Kingdom" and "We, the Gods."
