4 stars This EP release from 1999 demonstrates again what incredible music this band puts together. Moya is almost eleven minutes of blissful moodscapes. Slow methodic build ups, gorgeous cello and violin work and reaching an eventual climax. The subtleties on Moya require repeated listenings to fully appreciate and the second track Blaise Bailey Finnegan III is approximately seventeen minutes of the speaker presenting a diatribe on the third world status of America, poetic recitals and thankfully the music for the most part overriding the verbal tirades, just listen on twelve minutes into BBF3 to get an idea as frenzied and solid drumming drives home the severity of the band's missive. Truy awesome music. Politically focussed album for sure but the music illicits an emotive sadness which serves as a modern day representaive for modern day mankind perhaps? Four and a half stars for this Slow Riot.. released already a decade ago now.
