Bern Stock This track shows just how good these guys are.. just when you thought no vocals was the best they could sound, they do this. amazing work every time. Favorite track: The Cliff (Vocal Version).

Richard Barton When the man from Godflesh comes and remixes what is already a blindingly brilliant song... It just sends you over the edge of this world! Favorite track: The Cliff (Justin Broadrick Remix).

John Cratchley Pelican always sound very spontaneous and yet always totally in control of their material...that can't be easy to do without compromising either quality.
Those chiming guitars and driven pulse are as great as always.I like the remixes...they add a new perspective to the material and allow you to revisit the original concept with fresh ears.

Nick What a great release from Pelican. Vocals from Allen Epley on The Cliff and a Justin Broadrick remix. This lives up to the previous Epley vocal release on What We All Come To Need and the Justin Broadrick remix of Angel Tears. Superb! Favorite track: The Cliff (Vocal Version).

    "The Cliff” is a new “vocal driven” 12” /EP release from Chicago's esteemed instrumental quartet Pelican. The 12” vinyl is fresh reimaginings of 'The Cliff', a highlight from their most recent album, 2013's Forever Becoming, and one recently completed new song. The four track EP includes remixes from Justin Broadrick (of Godflesh, Jesu), Aaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer of ISIS/Palms, and, for only the second time in their fourteen year career, vocals. Allen Epley (Shiner, The Life and Times) once again returns to the band’s fold to transform, in a complementary manner, the concept and overall outcome of what we have come to know as Pelican. No cheap juxtaposition, Epley’s seasoned voice is as broad and astonishingly capable on “The Cliff” as the members behind the music, a claim those who have listened to Epley’s contribution on “Final Breath” from 2009’s What We All Come To Need will attest to. Elsewhere on the record, Justin Broadrick and AH/BCM turn in fresh takes of the source material, feeling less like remixes than new compositions reworked from the original source. Rounding out the set is the previously unreleased song “The Wait”, a contemplative semi-acoustic simmer that builds to an explosion of cathartic distortion and melody in true Pelican fashion.
