    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.

    The best moments [from The King Is Dead] are woefully unlucky not to have made the cut.

    Long Live the King, the collection of leftovers from that album [The King is Dead], continues that same stripped-down trajectory with mixed results.
  3. Sure, there is not a bad tune in the bunch, but the problem is that there isn't a particularly good one here, either.
