While we await the follow up to the breathtaking ‘Fireproof‘ album, Pillar offer us an acoustic six-song project. Fans will know some of the songs while the quality of the band’s compositions ensure that even stripped down they have an earthy passion. Also, the string arrangements, particularly on the studio-recorded opener “Further From Myself”, is top notch while the four live tracks exude an earthy resonance. Hard music buffs aren’t left totally out of the picture though. The last cut is the new-to-the-public “Bring Me Down” with plenty of savage guitar riffing. An adequate stop gap until the next release.
