While everybody's anxiously waiting for the release of the No-Man live DVD we are treated to a new EP featuring some of the forthcoming material in sound and vision. The title track will be familiar to those who own Schoolyard Ghosts, it's a wonderful No-Man ballad with some neat slide guitar. Following this track we get two brand new tunes, specially written for this EP. "Death Was California" is a typical No-Man ballad with little more than acoustic and echoing electric guitar accompanying Tim's voice. This song wouldn't have been out of place on the Together We're Stranger album. "Counting" is different, still an ambient No-Man piece but with percussion loops and organ and working to a semi-cacophonic climax, thereby reminding me of Truenorth a bit. As with many other EP-only releases by No-Man, both are good quality tracks.
However the real treat of this EP are the live versions of two great No-Man tracks. Both "Carolina Skeletons" and "All The Blue Changes" are very peaceful and ambient songs in their original versions. Live on stage the band take both songs into a whole new direction. These renditions start as quiet as their originals do, but halfway through they evolve into enormous powerful blow-outs. Besides the audio tracks there's also a data section on the EP that can be used on your PC. It consists of MP3 versions of all audio tracks, hyperlinks to all No-Man related websites and two videos.
