Morts As you may have guessed by now this EP sounds like a little bunch of tracks taken from an electronic '80s movie soundtrack score. Certainly something that fans of such music will enjoy, although to my ears it starts out with the stronger tracks and tapers off, particularly with the ska-inspired Head Cleaner which gets my vote for the EP's clanger. Favorite track: Chase (Freeze, Sucka).

Pieces of Eight It's like you're riding around San Fran with the top down alongside Danny Glover, Bill Murray, and Eddie Murphy. Favorite track: Chrominance.
