4.0 out of 5 stars Equally as good as A Very Still Movement., 22 Oct. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Relapse (Audio CD)
Another three songs from Oceansize. No ambient instrumental track this time (which to some is a good thing). This ep clocks in at 22 minutes: Amputee 5 minutes, Relapse 10 minutes and You Wish 7 minutes.
Amputee kicks things off, which is probably, so far..., the definitive Oceansize song. It has some beautiful swirling guitar and great vocals which combined makes the listener's spine tingle if he/she allows him/herself to get sucked into it. The title track follows, introducing itself quietly. Guitar strings are lightly strummed, a smooth bass line emerges, guitars become stronger, stronger, it gets fairly quiet for a while then all 3 guitars combine, the drummer pounds, the bassist probably gets jealous as he is overshawdowed by the riffage. This goes on for some time and then some more lightly played guitar ushers the song away. You Wish, to me, is slightly reminiscent of Tool. There's some dark heavy riffage and an Indian/middle eastern sounding bridge in a powerful song which finishes off another Oceansize ep.
I've given this 4 stars instead of 5, simply to say to Oceansize: is it time to stop teasing me and other fans with 3 occassional songs here and there and release perhaps one of the definitive albums of this decade?

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 27 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Relapse (Audio CD)
Amidst the ever increasing wave of nu-metal bands, Oceansize make a great change. You can check out some of their songs on the official website, and hearing them is the only way to get a feel for how great they are! I wish them every success and I hope I'll be hearing their name a lot in future.
