CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic
While each of the seven tracks contained herein are fully realized, they are as unfocused as they are beautiful, resulting in an intangible, dreamlike atmosphere that reduces each cut -- no matter how deep -- down to a mere scratch.

As a stand-alone EP this is the kind of thing that would make you very interested in the band, as it's clear that they've got something special going, which when they get right, really bursts into your mind.

Pitchfork

The EP shows a band still finding its strengths and developing its sound, unsure of its talent for cathartic drama ... The band generates tension and energy, but don't always recognize the best way to unravel it.

Unpolished yet solid songs with bucolic-suburban lyrics with sprinklings of rage, love, and nostalgia. A good glance at Arcade Fire's essential force.
Picks: Vampire/Forest Fire / Headlights Look Like Diamonds / No Cars Go / My Heart Is an Apple.

This one really clicked for me today, Régine’s vocals on the end of My Heart Is An Apple are just incredibly beautiful, and I’m starting to appreciate the more stripped-back (at least production-wise) version of No Cars Go.

Favourite Track: No Cars Go
