Review by Any Colour You Like
4 stars There's something very alluring about this release. Sure, as an EP it's never going to completely blow you away in the same sense that a well planned, musically fresh and thematically interesting full length will, but Pelican's Ephemeral EP is surely one of the most impressive releases the band has produced to date.

Traversing 20 minutes of dynamic, dense, melodic and powerful metal, the compositions here are typically Pelican, but they also have that wonderful aura of intrigue and mystery. They aren't psychedelic in the Eloy sense, nor weird in the Kayo Dot sense, but groovy and dense nonetheless. There's simply more depth and texturing to each movement than just chugs of metal and flailing percussion fills. Yes, the Earth cover 'Geometry of Murder' may not be as languid and textural as the original, but what this cover lacks in 'photocopy', it makes up for in a truly dynamic 'expression'. Indeed, this one of Pelican's more expressive releases. As I have said in previous reviews, Pelican should be treated as a triumphant, joyous artist, there's nothing sinister or dark about any of their compositions. Just take one listen of Ephemeral and you'll know what I mean. It's mature, powerful and strangely poised. A near-perfect way to spend 20 minutes.

Now the release isn't without faults, but by and large these are mostly subjective stylistic flaws that I shouldn't need to espouse here. Objectively, there simply isn't anything bad to say.

Nevertheless, my 3 stars stand for the title track alone and to my ear this very version sounds better and softer than that presented on 'What We Al ... (read more)
