2 stars What an egoistical move by Mr. Gildenlow and co. How in the world can this cost nearly as much as a LP when the main track "Linolium" allso is on "Road Salt One" Ok, we have about four other tracks where one is a cover, pretty good. But cmon! The sound and the vocals is sometimes atrocious like on the else promising "Motar grind" really amazing song but the choros is unlistenable! The two more mellow tracks are allso great. But when they suddently feel that they have the nerve to record a conversation about bonus hair they pretty much, or atleast Daniel shows his huge ego. Why couldnī they atleast do like Steven Wilson did on " The Incident instead of taking that much money for an EP right before a new album. Not like theyīre an upcoming band, and if Daniel really wanted to earn more money he could start to consider that maybe he has a decent fanbase in USA who share the same opinions as him about capitalism and get his ass over there. But i still love 70-80 % of your music, still a fan, but this release is mediocre, and yes! I know that i donīt need to buy it. But i think that itīs wasting obsessive fans money when they should be as humble and giving as possible and maybe have "Linolium" as a second disc. Just an opinion.
