4 stars A little something to tide us over.

Knifeworld from the start, which for me was the Buried Alone: Tales Of Crushing Defeat, was a band I was going to be keeping an eye on. I was ready already for the next album, but this is the second intermediate EP and the better of the two, but not by too much.

I may be repeating myself but it's like the spirit of Gentle Giant in their prime had been floating around in space and landed on the Knifeworld.

So, when I found out there was streaming about for the main track of this EP, I was clicking around and accidentally launched two instances out of sync. I was thinking hmm. I don't know if I really like this as much. Fortunately about a minute in I realized what I had done, oops. It doesn't really lend itself too well to being listened to in that fashion. May have been summoning up evil spirits or something. Well, there's a video for this and once again, if only MTV still played videos?"I may have to borrow your tarot tomorrow." Not sure if I've entirely figured out what this song is about. I am certain it's about five minutes and twenty eight seconds.

In A Foreign Way, nice and bouncy. Video available for this one but not as fancy as the first.

The Prime Of Our Decline is the icing on this cupcake. Deliciously complex, if any track will convince you to keep an eye on these guys and gals, none will. A wild seven and a half minute ride.

A full length album is in the works. I'll be there.
