5 stars Outstanding EP! Although I found FOABP to be an excellent album, I felt a bit cheated since there were only 6 tracks. That was the only thing that prevented me from ranking FOABP on the same level as "In Absentia" and "Deadwing" (both of which I consider to be masterpiece albums). Had Steven Wilson decided to include a couple of tracks from 'Nil Recurring' in the original release of FOABP, it would stand on its own as a masterpiece as well.

'Nil Recurring', although only 28 minutes in length, will deliver many hours of listening pleasure. It picks up where FOABP leaves off, but never sounds tired or repetitive - not even when certain themes from FOABP are restated here. PT never cease to amaze me. They have managed to tap into something very special. Very few bands are able to achieve this level of consistence excellence. Here's hoping they can keep it going for as long as possible.
