Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This was the second recording from Steven Wilson's I.E.M. project. A short EP that included "Headphone Dust" from the first album.

The title track here is quite different from the debut as Steven uses a lot of samples and humour to go along with the great music. I guess you could say this is more experimental but it's a lot of fun too. It opens with a child saying the alphabet up to the letter "Q" then Wilson comes in talking (acting) as the leader of this "legendary alternative poetry band" called BORIS THE COW (haha). The music then kicks in and it sounds great as we get a heavy beat and then the guitar comes in ripping it up. A brief humerous vocal section takes over around 4 minutes.Then a change again as we get percussion with organ. Another change as what sounds like synths and mellotron flood the soundscape (nice). It ends with the child picking up where he left off at "R" as he finishes the alphabet to end it. Interesting to say the least. "Headphone Dust" is such a great track. As I said in my review of the debut it does have a PORCUPINE TREE flavour to it. I just love the synths and guitar on this one.
