    Any of these songs could've fit on The King Is Dead; instead, they've come together to form another excellent record.
  2. Overall, the EP works wonders, given largely to the fact that it contains unreleased tracks from sessions of the band's greatest, most straightforward work to date.

    Good, not great. There's a reason these are the B-sides, and there's a reason they weren't on "The King Is Dead." But all that said, the EP is fun and spirited, and the music is plenty enjoyable. "Foregone" is a great song. Full Review »
