Don't get me wrong: the musical work of Olafur Arnalds on the whole tends to make me ridiculously happy in the most blissed out of ways. It soothes and challenges me, both reducing me to tears and pushing me to self-examination and thoughtfulness. With this said, I simply feel, after enjoying this EP, that his previous full-length, 'Eulogy for Evolution', is much better. The songs here, while beautiful, don't seem to have nearly the cohesive drive and pull that 'Eulogy...'s songs had.
Should you have 'Eulogy...' already and find yourself considering the purchase of this EP, please don't hesitate - after all, it's still Olafur Arnalds. Should you never had have experience with Arnalds work beforehand, however, I urge you to purchase 'Eulogy for Evolution' first.
