    The songs as individual pieces work just fine but the collection taken as a whole makes each piece feel more complete within the contextual possibilities. Overall, it's a strange but very solid release.

    For an EP as flat and, well, just plain stuck as Our Love Is Hurting Us sounds, playing catch-up would've been preferable to taking a promising but not wholly memorable debut and simply offering it up a second time

    Everything else seems comparatively flat and unsurprising; while the components of the individual songs are different, the results are of a kind, like a set of recipes using the same ingredients.

The result is a haunting, melancholy album that's perfect for break-ups and rainy days. Highlights include "TryTry", "Break Yr. Heart" and "No Way Back". Full Review »
