Prog Reviewer
2 stars Vajrayana is an EP that is lightly eerie, occasional propulsive, but seems like it's been done before. After listening to this EP a few times over, I've come to the conclusion that this EP sounds like it was constructed entirely of introductions and interludes found on recent Porcupine Tree albums (Fear of a Blank Planet, Nil Recurring, The Incident). At any minute, some rock-style guitars and melancholic vocals about technology and how much life sucks could kick in and this would immediately become like any other Porcupine Tree album. Unfortunately, without those PT elements, this EP is actually very boring. Both tracks are purely electronic and very bleak, and fail to establish any interesting qualities or real atmosphere or textures. Beats are lightly integrated into the first track as chimes and synthesized choral sounds emphasize the shallowness, and "Aum Shinrikyo" really isn't much of anything at all besides a slowly pulsing bass thump backed by a slowly alternating windy drone.
