    Nice introduction from Karen O and Co. This indicated what was the come in the future, nice, often frantic, sometimes off the wall, Rock. If you like this band you'll like this EP and if you don't you won't.

  1. The EP barely hints at how great the band has become in the past year, especially since the sound quality is roughly at a firing-a-BB-gun-into-a-garbage-can level.
  2. This isn't a record, it's a portfolio: it's noisy but catchy, it lets them try out different styles, and it makes you give a good goddamn.
  3. Just when the bombast teases with sounding like nails on a chalkboard, the band turns things around to remain more cool than annoying.
