4 stars A good follow-up to EE1.

Although not quite as good as the first volume of EE, this contains some great music and is up there among their best albums. This volume is slower than the original EE1, which is probably why they sought to shift around the tunes between the two when putting together the full-power version (with the extra/new tracks from Make Some Noise added in). "East Coast Racer" is the clear standout track here, but "Keeper of Abbeys" and "Curator of Butterflies" are also great tunes. Of course, just get the full-power version and you will have all of EE plus the Make Some Noise EP. But for posterity, I rate this 8.6 out of 10 on my 10-point scale, which translates to mid 4 PA stars.
