notes for the 2023 prog rock list. most of this stuff doesn't matter but i feel a need to point it out
unsure of whether or not to include this as it only contains two songs, one of which is a remastered version of a song that the band released in 2015. i typically do not include bonus/remastered songs in albums that i listen to for the list, but if i don't include the remastered song from this ep then i'm judging a single instead of an album. there are a number of albums that consist of only one song, but they usually last over 40 minutes. i'm disincluding this album for now, but it's still worth listening to.
i listened to the deluxe version which includes single edits of two songs already in the album, those single edits were not included as part of my ranking. the album length was also changed to reflect that.
only the first 4 songs on the bandcamp list were considered when ranking this album as the last two are just bonus tracks. though the main frontman for the band Antony Kalugin considers the album to only have 2 main songs and 4 bonus tracks, the official youtube playlist has the first 4 songs listed. the final 2 tracks are just shorter versions of the 2 main songs anyway whereas tracks 3 and 4 are more distinct.
the band's bandcamp page only lists the first track as a free download, which is why the main link is a youtube playlist.
there is a time discrepency on the bandcamp page because the band accidently included the song 'DELTA' twice.
there is a time discrepency on the bandcamp page because the band accidently included the song 'Hot Mess Express' twice.
there is a time discrepency on the bandcamp page because the band accidently included the song 'Aside' twice.
for full disclosure, I received a copy of this album from Pete Rand, one of the members of the band. however it has not affected my categorisation of the album and there certainly was no agreement between us that influenced me into giving it a higher or lower categorisation than I have.
