This EP is really just a one half an hour song by Old Man Gloom. But it does showcase both the ambient soundcsapes of Old Man Gloom that I love, and the barely-restrained sludge and metal that they excel at. There's not a whole lot I can say that the song definitely holds your attention for the whole span, and is along with "Christmas" album one of my favorites from Old Man Gloom.
