I purchased this mini-album off the strength of the excellent "Lightspeed" single, and was not disappointed. This CD is packed full of great songs with nice hooks and melodies, with "John Wayne" being a particular highlight. The vocals are also excellent, and Sam McTrusty's Scottish accent enhances the impact of each track tremendously.
I know that being Scottish, Twin Atlantic are inevitably (and perhaps lazily) going to be compared to their fellow countrymen Biffy Clyro. But if you are a fan of the latter then you will no doubt like this band - think of something that sounds like a cross between new/old Biffy Clyro but also brings something new to the table.
Additionally, the album sleeve has a nice "pop-out" effect which although obviously doesn't add or take anything away from the music, provides a nice touch and reflects the amount of effort and thought that has gone into this EP.
Although some tracks are better than others, this is an excellent debut and shows a great sign of things to come by Twin Atlanic. I am very much looking forward to their next release!
