3 stars "Lazarus" belongs to the most mellowish songs from "Porcupine Tree". It is a catchy song and therefore prolonged its career in a single format out from the average "Deadwing" album. The background piano is rather a good complement to smooth vocals. Some might find that this is too childish a song but no one can argue about the quality of its melody.

"So Called Friend" is fully in line with their latest work. Almost heavy metal but IMHHO, it could have replaced favourably several songs featured on this album. Great atmosphere, nice melody and hard attack. At the end of the day, it is a typical "PT" song.

"Half Light" isn't any worse than several songs from the album. Extremely soft, quiet and ... uniform. To listen during a peaceful winter evening at the side of the fireplace or if you would prefer during a warm summer night during which you would stare at the sky and count the stars.

This EP is of course not essential. Both unrealeased album tracks are interesting enough and deserve an ear. Three stars.
