I gave this another go today. It's not as bad as I remember. The music's pretty good... It's just kinda hard to hear what with Ian Astbury wailing over the top of it. These tracks would probably be awesome if Takeshi was singing - Astbury's vocal style is just not a good fit for Boris' music as far as I'm concerned.
I think this EP is fantastic. It's a very different type of music than usual for Boris but I love it (and that's one of the key things I love about them, their ability to make excellent music in a huge amount of styles). Ian Astbury's vocals are brilliant too. The man excels on 'Magickal Child' and 'Teeth and Claws'. Great stuff.
