4 stars If your as big a fan of this band as I am this Ep is a must have. None of these four songs show up on their full length album, so you get over 30 minutes of great music.

"As They Came They Slightly Disappeared" is the shortest track at 4:20 and it's pure psychedelic music. The spacey waves drift in and out until the final minute when it builds to a climax. "Calling On The Dogs" has a good beat with crisp drumming. Spacey synths are in the background as vocals arrive 2 minutes in. A beautiful guitar solo goes on and on as drums pound away. Piano melodies end it. Nice.

"Waves Of Memories" opens with acoustic guitar melodies with vocals joining in after a minute. The lyrics really bring images to my mind. 3 1/2 minutes we get a full sound for about 30 seconds until it reverts back to the acoustic guitar, synths and light drums. Another spacey soundscape. "Curved Sphere" is almost 13 minutes long. Keys and synths start us off before vocals,guitar and drums come in. A nice guitar solo 3 minutes in with piano and synths as well. The tempo and moods continue to change. Strong vocals come in. PINK FLOYD-like guitar and synths show their influences well after 8 minutes. Vocals return after 10 minutes.

This Ep is satisfying enough to search for, and with 30 minutes of music it's worth the money.
