Biography

To observe Ra Ra Riot on stage is to observe a joyful experience in progress, somehow both intensely fun and just plain intense; it's a joy that's always aware that darkness and despair may be just around the corner, that life is both beautiful and terrible, and it’s a joy that is in fact amplified by this awareness.

It's this bittersweet dynamic that makes the rhumb ... Read more in Amazon's Ra Ra Riot Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Ra Ra Rather Better Than The LP 23 Jan 2009
By Gannon
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This EP showed great promise in Ra Ra Riot, recalling both Arcade Fire in its commendable lashings of lush strings and tempo changes, as well as, and in retrospect, Vampire Weekend, with its Paul Simon vocals. A particular highlight is 'Ghost Under Rocks' which takes it a step further, and in its wistful delivery brings to mind The Shins.

This is an unashamed pop-rock-cum-indie-rock EP which Weezer could have made if they stopped messing about and being self-consciously ironic.

The band sadly lost a member between this EP and the LP The Rhumb Line, but in doing so also seemed to lose their edge, which does serve as adequate posthumous praise for the poor lad, and stands this EP as a proud testament to him. Where the LP falls down is in its sub-Vampire Weekend aping, which happily had not started in earnest during this release.

This EP had the curious effect of managing to be so discreet a grower despite its strong influences as to leap from bland to great in one epiphanic moment, so ... worth the investment all round both financially and temporally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and fantastic 9 Feb 2008

Saw these at Latitude festival in 2007, really fantastic live band - full of energy and verve. Indie rock, with strings, great sing-along lyrics... Well worth a purchase (or get it direct from their website!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dying Is Fine 27 Nov 2013

Wonderful EP. Wish I had gotten it sooner. I do love this band so they really can do no wrong for me. Also love the longer version of Dying Is Fine... which is the reason why I bought the EP

3.0 out of 5 stars Good 6 Dec 2009
By Daniel Halverson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
But not as good as I suspected--it doesn't have as many songs as I would have liked and I would have more enjoyed just hearing the songs from this cd over the radio occasionally.
