    He doesn't push it far enough to be useful, so the EP ends up being not quite as playful as its title suggests, but it's not especially noteworthy either.

    "Hey Ray" is a sore-thumb irritant on an EP that otherwise carefully mediates between Cale's populist and deviant tendencies.

    For the most part, Extra Playful makes a nice addition to any modern rock playlist, though there's nothing on here that will drop your jaw.

    Extra Playful is fun in the worst kind of way and, at times, bad in very fun ways, but as a whole it presents rather discouragingly the attempt of an auteur marooning--perhaps on purpose, but hardly with purpose--as an amateur.
