Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "[view]" is an EP release by Norwegian experimental rock/metal act Manes. The EP was released through code666 Records in February 2006 between the releases of Manes second and third full-length studio albums "Vilosophe (2003)" and "How The World Came to an End (2007)". "[view]" is limited to 999 digipack copies.

The EP features seven tracks distributed over a 33:21 minutes long playing time. Four of them are in a similar experimental electronic rock/metal style as the music style on the two above mentioned albums. There are distorted guitars on the tracks so they mostly remind me of "Vilosophe (2003)" though. The four tracks are vers/chorus structured with clean vocals and they are actually very accessible. The opening track "Cinder Alley" is a really strong track but I also greatly enjoy the pop oriented "Title" which reminds me a lot of "Dance Into The Fire" by Duran Duran. The three remaining tracks are different remixes of the song "Terminus a quo/Terminus ad quem" from "Vilosophe (2003)". Unfortunately itīs only "Terminus Rmx" thatīs somewhat interesting. The other two remixes donīt do that much for me. Especially "Terminus dei Profundis", with itīs noisy and ambient soundscape, is rather redundant if you ask me.

Overall "[view]" is a good EP release by Manes even though the three remixes arenīt really that interesting. Had all songs been as great as the four original compositions I would probably have given a full 4 star (80%) rating. As it is now I think a 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is deserved.
