(Together) [EP] - The Antlers

Mixed or average reviews - based on 7 Critics

Critic score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 7
  2. Negative: 1 out of 7
  1. There is no common thread, no thematic continuity and no real obvious reason behind any decision-making. It's an EP that is bound to raise the age-old philosophical question, "What is an EP for?"

    (together) is still a decent collection for hardcores that couldn't get enough of the Antlers after Burst Apart... but casual listeners might be left confused, bored and, well - bummed.

    It is neither a change of direction, nor chock full of revelatory bonus tracks. But as a collection of outtakes and remixes from Burst Apart, it works fine.

    A hodgepodge of reheated, occasionally indulgent ephemera left over from the band's second full-length, Burst Apart. [#39, p. 73]

    It must have been much more fun to record all of these tracks than it is to listen to them.

    (together) would have made more sense as a second disc in a deluxe version of Burst Apart, where uber-fans who needed variations on the songs would've thought nothing of taking the extra plunge. Unfortunately, as a separate release, it just doesn't have the legs to stand on its own.

    (together) is borderline unlistenable taken as a whole.
