This is a two track long EP that both manages to be longer than most EPs out there and better than most full-length albums out there. Coming in at 28 minutes, it really is surprising just how good this is for the entire duration. I don't think there was a time in any of my listens where I didn't like what I was hearing.

I think that this is the first thing I'm hearing from Godspeed You that I can actually fully ... read more
