This EP is a great little addition to every Broken Bells/Danger Mouse/James Mercer Collection, consisting of more catchy and chill tracks - similarly found on their excellent self-titled debut album as well as "After The Disco" released in 2013.

For anybody who has never heard a single song of the band I'd recommend either one full length album, simply because there is more content to really get into this band.

Buying the other album is step number two and lastly (but not least) THIS CD!

One last comment - the sleek digipak packaging fits nicely to the songs and the flair this duo represents.

Why "just" 4 stars? Of course I wish there were even more new songs! :)

Happy Listening!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem that will be much sought after some day. 26 April 2014
By Cole miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
Broken Bells in my opinion are the bridge between art house psychedelic rock and radio pop. They have the accessibility of U2 but are poetic much like Mercer's other band The Shins. Some day they will break through the mainstream and this EP will be much sought after, all the songs are great in their own right, but the title track is something else, its badass. It has a kind of intensity and urgency that most songs don't, it's a pump up song, it will inspire you to succeed, it will make you want to kick some ass.

4.0 out of 5 stars A move toward something different 10 May 2011
By J. Loudon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In March of last year, James Mercer, the lead singer of The Shins, and Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse) of Gnarls Barkley fame, teamed up to form Broken Bells. The result was one of the best albums of 2010 with captivating singles like "The Ghost Inside" and "The High Road" leading the way. Now, almost exactly a year later, the duo is back with four additional songs, two previously unreleased and the other two only released digitally.

EPs of this length are typically nothing more than a collection of tracks deemed to be unfit for inclusion on a previously released or upcoming full-length album. However, in the case of "Meyrin Fields," that is not the case. Although the overall sound and feel of the EP is similar to that of their self-titled debut, there is still a resonant progression; a glimpse of things to come.

"Meyrin Fields" may not quite satisfy fans who have been hungry for more since the first time they heard Broken Bells' debut, but it does serve the purpose of confirming this side project for two talented artists has not yet reached its completion.

Opening with the title track, "Meyrin Fields," a track originally released as a B-side to "The Ghost Inside," the combined influence of both band members is still just as easily heard as it was on Broken Bells' debut.

The quick, electronic beat with a blend of clean and distorted sounds can easily be compared to Danger Mouse's other projects, but as soon as Mercer's trademark vocals enter the mix, the resulting sound is undeniably their own.

The following track, "Windows," begins with a beat that sounds like it could have been ripped out of a spy movie, but a self-harmonized Mercer, frequently showing off his impressive range, takes the song in a different direction. The unusually unpolished track has a bit more of a funk feel to it than much of Broken Bells' debut which is our first glimpse of a move from their electronic pop sound with smooth edges.

"An Easy Life," the third track on the EP, was previously released with the iTunes version of their debut so the track serves as less of a progression than "Windows," but it will likely be a favorite of this EP for many fans.

With a bit of a tropical theme to the beat, Danger Mouse takes the relaxed mood of the track and adds his own electronic spin.

Mercer's vocals are given more sonic treatment on this track as well which may become the norm if the duo continue to release material, but only time will tell.

"Meyrin Fields" closes with "Heartless Empire" which sounds more like The Shins than anything else Broken Bells have done up until this point, but the distorted backing instrumentation keeps "Hearless Empire" from falling too far into The Shins' standard formula.

A consistent fuzz that only lets up for the final note of the song is unique among any of Burton or Mercer's past projects. With members of The Shins in question and Cee Lo Green doing just fine on his own without Danger Mouse, it's possible Broken Bells could become far more than just a side-project for either member.

"Meyrin Fields" is not as extraordinary as Broken Bells' debut, but if the EP serves to start the band's experimental shift before a new full-length album, then listeners have much to look forward to in the years to come.

I'm a huge Broken Bells fan and had to have this EP for my collection but the songs are nothing special. Glad I have it but wished it had some good songs on it.

This EP complements Broken Bells' first album. I recommend it as an "add-on" to your Broken Bells palate. Two more words were required to complete this review, but you got a whole sentence!
