First I should let the truth be known about me: I'm not a big fan of pre-Painful YLT, nor have I learned to truly appreciate the quiet majesty that is And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out and Summer Sun for the most part. That's not to say I don't listen to and enjoy the other stuff, but I happen to prefer feedback and rockin' out.
So on to this E.P. At first I thought, "yay, they made a slightly rockin' version of Today is the Day" and then I looked at the bottom of the tracklisting. It's Cherry Chapstick, one of their most rocking songs. "Ah," I thought, "This will be a quiet acoustic number." And indeed it is. It's like how they did two versions (one quiet and one fast, though more boring) of Big Day Coming. Too predictable.
The songs in between are great feedback-y tunes. I especially like track 3. Ira sings really low and you can barely understand the words, but it's so haunting.
So get it. It's $5 or $6. Just go buy it for heaven's sake and write your own review. Sorry I ruined the "surprise" of Cherry Chapstick though.
