vocals don't make an appearance until three minutes into "Low Tide", the EP's lengthy opener. This song would be considered the most chill and approachable song by ISIS ever, but that wouldn't be accurate as it is AEREOGRAMME vocalist Craig Beaton who whisks us away to dreamland. The guitars and bass combine with the vocals to really anchor this song in a repetitive, catchy and semi-awkward rhythms that don't sound too far off from Botch's grooving masterpiece "Afghamistam". The song ebbs and flows for 10 minutes before coming to a most righteous.

"Delial" is much more of an ISIS sounding track with a distorted, palm-muted intro that are slathered in an echo laden, tribal cave. Although this isn't really all that heavy for ISIS, this would be considered AEREOGRAMME's heaviest song. The track clocks in at 3:55 and is over almost as soon as it begins and the last half could also be likened to some Old Man Gloom and Jacob Bannon's solo material (aka Supermachiner), as the song is torn apart and peppered into a static soup.

The Radiohead 'Kid A'-esque "Stolen" closes out the EP in the lulling, dreamy, mostly instrumental soundscape that meanders for over ten minutes and is decent but certainly nothing to write home I guess I should stop.

All in all, this is a great release with "Low Tide" being worth the purchase (or download) alone.
