5 stars Marverlous EP!

The front of this record is in jewish language. This is why you have tou turn the front of the record right instead of left.

There happens very much on this record, but through the whole EP it seems that there is one main theme. The first track is a masterpiece, featuring a beautiful floating melody with threatening strings. This builds up very subtle after five minutes the drummer starts playing and all the guitars are getting meaner and meaner. This builds up to very loud noises which may sound chaotic, but are very organized. The main melody is still hearable at this moment. The whole thing explodes, still sounding marverlous, though.

The next piece is an extroadinary psychedelic experience that is connected from 'Moya'. This song has similarities with 'Moya', but doesn't build up to one long hilight. It has shorter highlights, but there are more of them. It starts with an american talking and a guitar theme that lasts very long, but somehow doesn't bore. Their are more different themes going on, but the amazing ambience lasts. It's a very weird piece, but it sounds great.

Godspeed you Black Emperor can surprise you in a minimalistic way. The whole ambience of this record is like it is made in the middle of nowhere, yet sounding quite unique and very emotional. The overall dynamics on the album are really awesome. I think of this this as a masterpiece, as if not one of the greatest EP's ever.

Foolsdrummer | 5/5 |
