5 stars Wow, this is good stuff and I'm not talking about the plate of food on the album cover. This is all top notch music and it's a shame that all we got from this band were 3 E.Ps, but they are chock full of amazing music. Not only is there a Canterbury sound here, but the music is also tinged with the right amount of jazz and neo-prog. These are humorous songs with lyrics that could have come from 10cc but the musicianship is what I wish 10cc had, but for the most part, didn't. Then at least we would have had a lot more of this music to listen to. Another reviewer said that the best way to listen to these songs is to put all 3 E.P.s together on one disc so that you had a full album's worth of excellent music and I would agree wholeheartedly with this.

The first two tracks are complex progressive numbers with a full band, the 3rd is a nice soft piano-led instrumental and the 4th track a full-band FZ inspired instrumental. What you get here is a thimble-full of excellent prog music. When I saw this was considered Canterbury, I expected something akin to Blondel with acoustic instruments and folk-sounding vocals. That's a completely false idea. This music is mostly electric, probably closer to Spock's Beard but much better and more authentic, plus the vocals are not as annoying. How can it be that more people haven't discovered this?

Highly recommended music to all. There is nothing really difficult to grasp in this music, but it is conventional prog at it's finest. Well-done and these nuns are definitely worth seeking. 5 stars. Not too many E.P.s out there can have the distinction of being rated 5 stars. The only other one I can think of is from GY!BE. Find this now and let's form a revolution to get more music like this! I can't do this on my own people!
