Werdegang E.P. - Sleepers Awake

Imagine Eddie Vedder wailing to a trippier, more progressive backing band, and you have an accurate taste of Sleepers Awake's, Werdegang E.P. Boatman Blues really showcases great drumming by Eric Gray which is accompanied by fighting guitars.

In Time is a swingy rock song with blaring bass and guitar riffs that backs a falsetto vocal forcing the thought, "don't you wish you could turn back time?" Its more reserved and thought provoking.

Screamers unleashes non-congruent guitar lines with hard panned movement. Its a ride for your ears. Thompson's vocals are an intense whisper and work very convincingly.

If you are a fan of Pearl Jam, you'll enjoy this e.p. If not, you might want to keep your distance. If Vedder ever finds himself unable to perform, Thompson could step in and 99% of the audience wouldn't know the difference.

RATING: 3 of 5 stars
