This EP, if listenned to without considering FOABP is superb. In fact, if you like PT already, you'll find all the elements that kept them doing so great. But it's the good same old Steven Wilson style, with mixtures of mellow and violent riffs, passing from full distortion to acoustic with great majesty.

Still, this album has almost NOTHING original. It's just new material coming out of the "factory". But I like it! I don't get bored from beginning till end, even if the wacky transitions don't surprise me anymore. I specially like the sound PT carries, that clean production with full round pounding sounds.

Musically, this EP is mostly in the drums for me. Great subtilty from drummer Harrisson with superb rolls as usual, and rythmics that give a whole new meaning to a basic normal riff (check out 'What Happends Now"). The rest is as you know it, the style hasn't changed, maybe a little more 'mainstream' (less than FOABP though).

My favorite here : Normal.
