4 stars What a meal !

I got this EP after getting in touch with Sanguine Hum for an interview. Antique Seeking Nun has morphed into that band.

I can understand why when listening to this EP. It is very playfully tossing a lot of eggs up in the air in the hope that one of them will land as a fully fledged chicken. The eggs in the air is Neo- Prog, Canterbury Scene, Post Rock, Fusion and Rock. Band wise...... = Sigur Ros, Frank Zappa, Caravan, Hatfield & The North and a bit of Marillion. The music is arch-typical British with the British sense of humour as the main theme. In short; the basis of this EP (and probably the band too) is the Canterbury Scene ethos of whimsiness and village idiots (not referring to the band members).

The quality is simply excellent throughout this album. Some of the songs are mid paced and fast in the vein of Hatfield/Zappa. The best piece here though is the Sigor Ros esque Son Of Bassoon. The three other songs is excellent too.

I am tempted to give a five stars review, but there is a couple of only superb pieces here which drags this EP down to four and some digits stars EP. In short; this is an excellent addition to anyone's record collection.

4.5 stars
