2 stars 2.5 stars really!

Well, let me start saying that I never liked the song "Lazarus" much, and now with this radio edit all the more experimental parts are gone. I always found it excessively melodic, and a little too poppy. When I saw it was released as a single, I was curious to see if the B sides were any good. "So Called Friend" is a fantastic song, really great, catchy, with a really energetic riff and great, as usual, performances by the musicians. This track in my opinion should have been in Deadwing. "Half Light" however is pretty boring, a ballad that tries to repeat some of their previous psych ballads, like "Stars Die". I personally find it quite irritating at times, and I'm sure I'll forget about it soon.

A mediocre piece of PT music, definitely not one of their best singles/EPs. For fans only.
