This EP isn't the worst, but it's extremely superfluous in the year 2019. Virtually nothing done on this EP isn't done better on one of their many LPs, especially since the second song just sounds like a Garlands leftover (and not a particularly notable one at that). It's somewhat interesting to hear the band finding their sound on this three-track EP, but that's not quite enough to make it really worth a serious listen.

Overall fantastic EP, probably my favourite the band ever put out.

If you were like I was and had only heard Heaven or Las Vegas before diving into this album, then wow are you ever in for something. Part of why I love this album so much is that it's just a perfect balance of so many qualities: it's dark but not overly depressing or monochromatic, both the vocals and the instrumentals are phenomenal and don't detract from one another in the slightest, and each song is distinct and yet they all fit together perfectly in one coherent package. It's truly a ... read more

Not even sure what I listened to. It felt weird but certainly not in an exciting and experimental way, more of an unenjoyable way. There's probably some stuff here that went over my head, but what I got sounded needlessly edgy and not at all like something I'd ever want to even consider revisiting.
