Análisis - Product Description :
On this five track EP, Justin Broadrick has set aside the heavy foundation of pounding guitars prevalent in past recordings and brought to the fore elements of texture and melody.

- Nice Additions!

I already owned the jesu/Eluvium Split EP that these songs come from. I don't know how to really explain the sound here but it's so layered with different sounds. The original EP to me is one of the best split EPs he had came out with and Eluvium topped it off with the shear beauty of his style. This album has an overall feel of loneliness and despair however the melody and texturing is so beautiful it leaves the listener uncomfortable. And it works! The two new alternative tracks are interesting in itself. You can tell Justin Broadrick mainly uses these as a outline and finally introduces the more structured elements and guitars to the final output however these "outlines" hold on their own. This is very electronic in comparison to his previous work but this is a very unique and beautiful side of his music. Don't expect anything heavy here it is somber and extremely calm. Definitely give it a chance, it does not disappoint at all.

- Great EP

By the time i got this ep (i own the split vinyl version) i've already listened to Jesu , Silver(ep), Conqueror and Sun Down/Sun rise(ep). The SD/SR ep was kind of a disappointment to me because it was very similar to conqueror in sound(in fact, it comes with the japanese version), but without the hooks that made me love that album. I thought Jesu would be releasing the same stuff over and over again in the future. So , when this ep was out, i bought it not expecting much, and boy i was wrong. This ep is, in my opinion, the best ep Jesu has released so far ( up to lifeline ). Yeah , it has the sound of conqueror , and some beats that reminded me to Silver (the electronica stuff), but it surely stands on its own.

A previous reviewer encouraged people to pick up the first jesu album only. To this i have to say that you only do that if you want to listen to the heavy stuff he was mentioning. That means , if you are expecting something more like Godflesh. But if you don't have any problem with shoegaze, electronica, some heaviness here and there and some catchy vocals, just give the other releases a try. As for myself , the first Jesu album was good, but i find the new ones to be more inventive.

Well , this ep is really good and i really love the title track. Give it a try.

- pretty amazing

keep playing this on repeat. great driving experience, all my passengers have loved it. if you like the echelon effect, you will enjoy this too. great find, i'm glad it's on here.

Ehh...It's all getting a little old, and a little too "nice". No more are the days of heavy, crushing, destroying guitars. Just endless circles of techno-fuzz generated by computers layered over and over. The whispering vocals no longer are as effective as they once were (ala Jesu 1 and late Gflesh) since you do not have the "heavy" anymore. Time for change! How about a "complete" album more in the vein of the ANbRX remixes. Anyone just getting into Jesu, buy the first "complete" album and stop there, all you will get besides "Conqueror" from there on out are lousey nicey-nice sounding Ep's , it's become just plain tiresome.
