Oceansize - Home & Minor EP
Ever since Oceansize’s last album Frames (2007), the band hasn’t been sitting still. Besides their intensive touring schedule, they prepared a 3DVD & 4CD box including all their studio albums and this brand new EP Home & Minor EP. Some leftovers or a masterpiece once again?
 
Where their last album Frames contained mostly long tracks with great climaxes at the end, this new six-song EP is a collection of the bands softer songs. Fear not, they haven’t gone pussy and you won’t fall asleep on this one. The compositions are not very long for Oceansize’s standards but the whole 32 minutes definitely succeeded in keeping my interest, even though the songs on their own don’t really stand out. Maybe it’s because I don’t fear a bit of post-rock every now and then, or some ambient pieces like the track ‘Monodrones’, but Oceansize completed a fine work once again. If you’re into bands such as Explosions In The Sky and don’t fear a bit of vocals every now and then (there’s a lot of instrumental work on this record as well), you won’t be disappointed. The diehard Oceansize (and progressive rock) fans might be a little disappointed on this one, but can find a bit more comfort with the new DVD-box and their upcoming full-length. Oceansize already stated this EP can be seen as their “acoustic album” (even though there’s not much acoustic about it) and will get back to their original sound on the next full-length! This EP is a nice piece in between, but don’t expect extremely stunning stuff. Their next full-length however…
