4 stars This EP contains one song (the title track) from the "Returning Jesus" album while the other tracks are previously unreleased outtakes from the "Returning Jesus" sessions.

"All That You Are" is pastoral with those reserved vocals until we get a fuller sound after a minute as drums and organ join in.This contrast continues. There's some passion in those vocals after 2 1/2 minutes. Nice. "Until Tomorrow" is pretty much banjo (it works) and vocals throughout. Some brief synths after 2 minutes. A very understated song that is actually reprised as the final track on this EP. "Chelsea Cap" opens with synths and drums as keys join in followed by vocals. I'm reminded of PORCUPINE TREE when the sound gets fuller on the chorus. Nice bass here from Colin Edwin. Some flute from Theo Travis follows. Themes are repeated.

"Darkroom" is haunting with piano to open. Percussion and almost spoken vocals join in. Synths a minute in. I like when he sings slowly before 2 minutes and you can hear samples. Such a cool track. The reprise of "Until Tomorrow" is done in such a way you would think your listening to it on an old scratchy LP.

I think like russellk I have to give 4 stars. It's sometimes hard to give that rating for an EP but this is a very worthwhile recording and i'm proud to own it.
