Still, so far I have always received stuff I ordered from Burning Shed, so let's hope this'll get here too sooner or later...
Haven't got mine yet but I went ahead and cheated.

Have to say only the last track grabbed me initially, just 'cos it has a nice groove in parts. I played Nil Recurring and The Sky Moves Sideways at a friend's place last night while I cooked dinner for a few people and TSMS went down well, but NR not so well. Not that that means anything at all, of course, as PTree is hardly dinner-party music!!!

One thing I'll say is the opening track or two really DO/DOES feel like leftovers from FOABP. Mostly because of the recycled lyrics and melodies, of course. But it leaves me wondering how SW could have stressed so emphatically on PT's website that this is absolutely a standalone release and not leftovers. Leaves me a little confused.

Need to listen a bit more, of course, but right now I've got an Emperor 'Best Of' selection playing, so it'll have to wait for another day!
