Overall its not bad. I thought for a 4 track ep this was a bit lackluster and definitely could have offered a lot more to chew on. Forever and ever more and take this lonely heart are both great songs but the other 2 tracks don't quite grab my attention that much. I love the band as a whole, and they have a fantastic frontman, but I want to see some evolution in sound on their forthcoming LP.
"Forever & Ever More" is a unique track in Nothing But Theives’ catalog with a vampiric twist. But the two songs in the middle just don't have the same bombast as "Broken Machine", and they come off as weak and formulaic.

Forever & Ever More: 9.5
Gods: 5
You Know Me Too Well: 4
Take This Lonely Heart: 8.5

It’s only 4 tracks, but each song is thoroughly entertaining, delivering with great riffs and instrumental work as well as fantastic vocals, coupled with pretty good lyrics about vampires, gods, and relationships. There’s not much to complain about this EP, other than that it’s short. It doesn’t necessarily explore new territory, but nonetheless it’s 4 tracks of great songwriting.
Nothing But Thieves deliver one of the most solid EPs of the year. Each song is truly impressive and only adds to the overall sum of their discography, rather than take away. It's short, which can almost be appreciated, for not babying its audience with filler to increase the run time.
A pretty mediocre collection filler-esq tracks from a great UK group. It's not horrible, but Nothing But Theives can do a lot better then this. I don't know what this says of the new album, but this is kinda boring.

Favorite Jams: Forever and Ever and More, Take This Lonely Heart

Lest Favorite: You Know Me To Well
