This EP is where they were starting to get more pop-rock, it was still far away from the electronic sounds of radioactive and whatever tf they are trying to do now a days though.

The mix is really bad, but if you can get passed that, this EP is a gem. Hell and Silence has the best synth work on an Imagine Dragons project. It makes the production so bright and colorful. It's all perfectly blended. Dan's songwriting hadn't quite peaked, which is the only thing keeping it from greatness.

This is much better than their previous two EPs. It's also the moment where they have developed and mostly fleshed out the type of music I enjoy by them. I've definitely heard better pop rock, but I've also heard worse. I'm very excited to get to their next couple records and hear a bunch of old favorites.
I like the Hear Me version in this EP more. Anyway, it's yet another great EP like all of them made by Early Imagine Dragons. Hear Me, Emma, I Don't Mind, All Eyes all have amazing guitar work and have the perfect hooks that you can expect from this band.
