With a rhythm section that has as much groove as a beached whale and guitar riffs that can only be described as torturous, this EP is a major disappointment. The "melodies" wander aimlessly and never really get anywhere. The vocalist, known only as "Lyndsey", does not have enough grit or power to carry the heavier songs against an excruciating backdrop of "experimental sounds". It's a shame that the openly evangelistic lyrics are overshadowed by the sound of a band strangling their instruments. After enduring the first five tracks, the final track, an atmospheric ballad, is milder on the ears; Lyndsey's vocal is somewhat enchanting and is complemented rather nicely by the acoustic guitar. Clearly this is the way to go in future. It's rather worrying that this EP is the product of the Nexus Academy Of Music Ministry.
