COUNTERMINE ‘Smallest Fears (EP)’
(2004)

This is a self-financed three track EP from a Bath-based five-piece band and it shows promise.

First track "Panicked" brings to mind something off Liveís "Mental Jewelry" debut. Quiet vocals and piano lead into a stirring chorus where the guitars kick in.

"So Quiet" follows which starts with a keyboard refrain similar to that on "Gazpatcho" by Marillion. The track again follows the quiet verse followed by loud chorus approach that again brings Live to mind. By the end of the track youíre singing along "Shut up, shut up, shut up I canít be with anyone else"

Closing track "You Shine" is a strum along acoustic number with a countrified feel and didnít really grab me after the power of the first two tracks.

I look forward to hearing their full-length debut in the not too distant future.
