4 stars Nil Recurring - Very interesting instrumental, my favorite since Wedding Nails. Robert Fripp guest stars on this piece on lead guitar, and the track really has a nice vibe to it. Very heavy and Fripp sounding. Normal - A bit poppy and repetitive, but still a fine track. Better than it's sister track on FOaBP - Sentimental Cheating the Polygraph - Very nice track. Very soulful guitar solo around the 2 min mark that sounds like something off of Arriving Somewhere. Sounds a little bit too much like Anesthetize though, but I realize these were changed and borrowed parts. What Happens Now? - I love Richard on these last two tracks. Great soundscapes. Reminds me of Tinto Brass a little bit.

I have to say, this has generated a lot of excitement, especially for an EP, and I was skeptical at first, but it is well deserved. Personal Rating: 5/5 ProgArchives Rating: 4.5/5, might not be everyone's cup of tea, but still a great and progressive release, though very similar to FoaBP

To me, this has to be some of the most progressive stuff that Porcupine Tree has recorded in a while. I'm a huge fan of it :)
