This is a record which fair smacks of GSYBE, and is one of their finest arrangements to date. If you want an introduction to them, or want more having heard "Lift Yr Skinny Fists...&c" then you would be well advised to invest in this fabulous EP. Classic GSYBE from start to finish, and with a superb soapbox monologue bizarrely accredited to Blaise Bayley Finnegan the 3rd, one time stand-in lead singer for Iron Maiden unless I'm mistaken.
The music builds from the humblest of droning bass beginnings. A rumble like a generator room, from which emerges the occasional splutterings of strings and guitars. GSYBE build from a seemingly unworkable start to an incredibly complex and wonderfully timed procession of drums and orchestral delights, more and more sounds piling onto the heap until you think your eardrums shall surely burst. The ever-melancholy guitars driving the whole on with an irrepressible force.
Massive and potent, sweeping, grand, unforgettable. This music evokes the strongest of emotions, and you need a damn good excuse not to go out and buy it right now.
