Review by russellk
4 stars This is a surprisingly good single issued a full two years after the album it's culled from, 2001's 'Returning Jesus' - and in the same year as NO-MAN's next album. Confused? But then no-one could accuse this talented duo of doing things by the book.

The title track was a sensational closer to 'Returning Jesus', with an ethereal vocal sample providing sonic balance to TIM BOWNESS's breathy vocals and STEVEN WILSON's restrained musicianship. It has a lovely melody and is well worth a listen, albeit in a slightly edited form (I guess) to fit under the UK 20-minute single restriction. 'Until Tomorrow' is one of two tracks exclusive to this release, and is a simple plucked banjo (!) backing BOWNESS. Makes no real impression. 'Chelsea Cap' is a curious omission from 'Returning Jesus', as it is an outstanding track and could stand as a single on its own. The NO-MAN enthusiast or collector needs this single for this track: the only other place it's available is the 2 CD compilation, 'All The Blue Changes'. It has the feel of a PORCUPINE TREE track from the 'In Absentia' or 'Lightbulb Son' albums, with a true PT chorus and lovely Hammond organ. A sadly under-appreciated gem, this. 'Darkroom' is a more experimental track, a haunting off kilter piano leading into a dark house full of forbidding noises. I've never heard destiny compared to an orange toothbrush before, I'll admit. I do like this track. The single finishes with an unnecessary valve-radio-muffled reprise of 'Until Tomorrow'. Pass.

If you like PORCUPINE TREE or NO-MAN, make sure you get to hear 'Chelsea Cap'.

Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars This EP contains one song (the title track) from the "Returning Jesus" album while the other tracks are previously unreleased outtakes from the "Returning Jesus" sessions.

"All That You Are" is pastoral with those reserved vocals until we get a fuller sound after a minute as drums and organ join in.This contrast continues. There's some passion in those vocals after 2 1/2 minutes. Nice. "Until Tomorrow" is pretty much banjo (it works) and vocals throughout. Some brief synths after 2 minutes. A very understated song that is actually reprised as the final track on this EP. "Chelsea Cap" opens with synths and drums as keys join in followed by vocals. I'm reminded of PORCUPINE TREE when the sound gets fuller on the chorus. Nice bass here from Colin Edwin. Some flute from Theo Travis follows. Themes are repeated.

"Darkroom" is haunting with piano to open. Percussion and almost spoken vocals join in. Synths a minute in. I like when he sings slowly before 2 minutes and you can hear samples. Such a cool track. The reprise of "Until Tomorrow" is done in such a way you would think your listening to it on an old scratchy LP.

I think like russellk I have to give 4 stars. It's sometimes hard to give that rating for an EP but this is a very worthwhile recording and i'm proud to own it.

3 stars EP release from 2003 by No-Man. Contains just about 20 minutes of music and features Stephen Wilson of Porcupine Tree and Tim Bowness. Unfortunately, this does not excite me in the same way as Porcupine Tree or even Blackfield. I am more of a fan of the harder Steven Wilson tracks and when he gets m ... (read more)
