Review by Tarcisio Moura
4 stars A very interesting EP from those american prog rockers. There are only trwo tracks and both are unavailable elsewhere. As a novelty, they also are both instrumentals. The massive title track is the longest and most symphonic piece ever recorded by Erik Norlander & co: 26 minutes of pure prog heaven wiht everything you might expect thrown in: terrific vintage sounding keyboards, fine and subtle guitar lines, mood and tempo changes, lots of percussions and even a cello and a NS stick solo! It is ok that it sounds like a bunch of themes put together (including the title track of Norlanderīs Into The Sunset solo album), but still the whole piece stands well together and has a cohesive delivering. It was a very nice surprise and Iīm very glad that I got it.

The other tune is a quite faithful cover of the theme from the James Bondīs movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service, complete with dramatic brass parts from guest players Jon Papenbrook (trumpet) and Eric Jorgensen (trombone). Norlander was always careful with his choices of covers and this is no exception.

I was quite pleasantly surprised with this "big single" (over 30 minutes of music in just two tracks!). I really hope this powerful release is setting the path for future Rocket Scientists albums!

Rating: between 3,5 and 4 stars.
