Review by A Crimson Mellotron
3 stars Frost* is back four years after the birth of the excellent album 'Falling Satellites', the band masterminded by Jem Godfrey has released an EP of re-worked leftovers from the sessions of this very album. At a running time of approximately 32 minutes, this could have easily been turned into an LP +/- one more track.

The six songs are obviously divided into two halves: the first three being fast, punchy, energetic and in-your-face, and the other three representing the more mellow and moody side of Frost*. Listening to them, I really can't see any of them sitting that well on 'Falling Satellites'. I would say they work well on their own, but not that comprehensive as a collection. So, good call by Jem to leave them out.

Still, the songs are decent, and moreover, the guys in Frost* are too talented and experienced to make something really bad , certainly memorable (most of them) but they don't really feel like a band effort.

'Others' feels too much like a Jem Godfrey solo release. This EP is good for sure but doesn't have the same value as the studio albums. Still, I would say it would be enjoyable for Frost* fans.
