2 stars Once you start listening to this EP, you realise why these songs could not make it to more conceptual albums.

The song quality is lower than usual standard for Agalloch; they are simpler. If the first song is still not bad, the other three tracks didn't raise my interest as they sound like background tracks to set atmosphere only. The clean voice in the fourth track sounds a bit like the Placebo vocal and is out of place here.

The last long track is, unfortunately, completely disposable and musically, it finished long before the official album end.

I recommend this EP only to collectors, instead, look at later EPs, especially at the highly regarded Faustian Echoes.
