4 stars It was really interesting for me to met the catchy sound of The Mercury Program some years ago. Even when I enjoy most of their discography, this EP is one of my favorite post rock pieces from the early 2000.

This album is a perfect mix of Tortoise and Gastr del Sol inffluences with some heavy sections that we will find in post rock tracks from the late 2000. Not much atmospherical stuff, but great sections leaded by slow guitars, specially on "There Are Thousands Sleeping In Peace", "Marianas" and "A Delicate Answer", maybe the most enjoyable pieces of this EP because the constant sense of "in crescendo" based on drums and bass work that leads the most epic moments of the album.

Maybe this album look like many others of the genre, but if you want to find some delicate minimal tunes mixed with heavy and even some proggy sections, this one could suprise you. It's a 4* for me...
