4 stars I bought this EP when I've been on a concert of these guys and I've to say they're really amazing on stage. Although not all of their stuff is so much "my cup of tea", actually on this one here it is only the title track that can hit my attraction. Both Softly There, Everything and Still going Nowhere are showing too much their influence by Alternative Rock bands. Nice songs for one listen but nothing special. But then there is this awesome piece called Stranger & Strangers timing 14 1/2 minutes and it's not one second too long. Vocals and keyboards by Louis Gabbiani are really superb and the rest of the band is playing great as well. This track is certainly an outstanding one and alone worth four stars. Actually I'd have wished they had included it on their album and omitted some other stuff instead. Like the next one for example Hide Inside which can't convince me here in its acoustic version neither.

Though I personally like only one track on this EP, I still would call it an excellent addition for any prog collection. Since it's occupying more than half of the record, this great track is for sure worth the money alone for the whole one. Fans of Radiohead or the alikes might be pleased as well by the other songs!
