4 stars This is one of Godspeeds finest moments. This EP is a good starting point as it is a lot more digestable than their full length albums. "Moya" is one of the shorter pieces by this incredible band. It is also one of the swiftest moving pieces as the others have ver gradual build ups, this one gets straight into it. This piece is very uplifting, relaxing and rewarding. One of their best pieces in my opinion.

This album follows a similar instrumental structure to their other albums, with strange voice overs and effects. "Slow Riot for New Zero Kanada" allowed the band to appeal to a bigger audience as their other albums are very patience demanding and can be a struggle to listen to at times. This album is punchier, shorter and faster moving yet still in true godspeed style so it definetly makes these two pieces strong and very listenable.

"BBF3" is also an uplifting yet dark piece with an interesting court debate between an inpatient judge and a man who just wants to pay his speeding ticket and get out of there. I think the voice overs add to this piece, you get amazing instrumental work as well as entertaining and strange vocal that keep the listener appealed. This is one of their strongest pieces and one of the best EP's i have heard.
