    Bibio’s work makes the EP truly sound impressively cohesive and tangible. The songs here pass like a particularly lovely daydream, gone far too quickly but with a tendency to linger on far after they end.

    All these tracks, whilst lovely in themselves, are made ten times better when tethered together.

    The result is a well-tempered mix of organic and contrived capable of rivaling even the most fertile metropolis.

    The Green EP isn't a release that surprises and demands attention the way that Ambivalence Avenue and parts of Silver Wilkinson did; instead, it seduces listeners into a reverie that's more cohesive and satisfying than the EP's patchwork nature might suggest.

    Bibio brings a certain refinement and voice to anything he produces now, but that doesn't change the fact that much of the EP is indisputably ad hoc.

    Bibio isn’t reinventing the wheel here (or rather, the acoustic guitar), but when you’ve already hit the sweet spot, you don’t have to.

    While The Green EP feels a bit long for its purposes, it never gets exasperating--quite the achievement for a collection of unreleased records.
