4 stars This EP is kind of funny. Arch's voice is almost chronological. He starts off the opening song sounding as if he's getting over a cold... then partway into it, sounds like he's singing "Fata Morgana" once again. He does a great job in his return to the studio, a whole 17 years later.

The instrumentation is pretty good overall, but I'd expect better from the likes of Matheos and Portnoy. It doesn't hinder the performance, but it could've helped it a bit more.

Overall, it's a good/excellent release, but not essential as some are arguing.
