Neither of those links work for me either. Thank God for Youtube people (though the quality isn't the highest)

Sounds pretty good.

It's pretty decent - they've never reached the heights of NOLA with anything they've done since in my opinion, but given how uninterested I was by the first EP, this one seems like a definite step up.

I finished listening to it... riff after awesome riff and great guitar tone... vox by Phil were pretty good... gonna give it an 8 most likely.

In two minds about it after listening to it:

1a. Better than expected. Given all the talk of Sabbath/Vitus worship I was a bit worried. I was especially concerned Phil would go overboard with his Ozzy impersonation ala Witchtripper. This hasn't happened.

Some of the riffage does got a bit too far down the Sabbath path but overall it's done tastefully.

1b. Better than Pt I in terms of riffs and song composition. Some bits do drag on, but this has been a feature of Down since Down III.


2. It's still not as massive or intense or plain awesome as Down II: A Bustle In Your Hedgerow. IMO they need to get away from the Sabbath-isms and refocus on including some more modern elements to achieve this.

I think I'll buy this one though.

A provisional 7 so far...
