(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a short ep, but it has some fantastic music on it which makes it well worth the money.The Residents' music from this era is buzzy and bleepy, with fuzzy twangy guitar lines, processed, hollow vocals, strong rhythms...and of course, the signature odd chords and harmonies, the just-out-of-sync rhythms.Perhaps my favorite song is "Would We Be Alive", which has some of the most haunting lyrics of anything they've done.My suggestion is that if you like Mark of the Mole, or other albums from this era, this is an excellent album to pick up. If you haven't, and you're curious about the Residents, Mark of the Mole is a great album to try. It's a little dense and demanding, but well worth a careful listen (a soundtrack for an alternate-reality bizarre subterranean Grapes of Wrath). If it clicks with you, then you'll love Intermission. It has many similar themes and sounds as Mark of the Mole, but the music is a little lighter, a little more direct."
