to bridge the timegap between the release of first album "Rise" (and "Rise II") and the 2009 album "Everydays Demons" this CD/DVD is made available. The CD has not much to offer tough, 4 songs, from which the first is taken from "Rise", the second (which already was released as a CD single) and fourth from "Rise II", which leaves the third "Highwater or Hell". There is something odd with this one. A great track, that must be said but it was intended to be included on the new album and is not! I am baffled because this is a good rocksong but to be honest - see my review of that album - it doesn't really add anything new because all the songs, no matter how good they are, are in the same mode, uptempo, sometimes a little bit slowed down, straight over the top rocksongs, with a guitarsolo in the middle or at the end. The same goes for the very first single "Keep Believing", which is an outstanding song but not included on "Rise", happily later to be found on "Rise II". Anyway, for a EP is this a little bit poor. The DVD on the other hand is interesting (and also made available in combination with the new album) because it offers several TV-clips from earlier songs, including again "Keep Believing", and interviews with each bandmember plus a short tourdocumentary. It makes clear that The Answer are on their way. All in all this is a package for the fans only, not for musiclovers in general. Hence the 3 stars, I bought this mainly for the missing song.
