Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

On this strange collaboration, two Boise combos collide in an unlikely alliance of noise, psychedelia, and minimalist pop. Built to Spill contribute two long, gorgeous messes called "When Not Being Stupid Is Not Enough" and "One Thing" (with some freaky Moog synthesizer work), while Caustic Resin add a groovy "Shit Brown Eyes." The two then combine for a great cover of Kicking Giant's "She's Real." The whole thing is strongly reminiscent of BTS's debut album, Ultimate Alternative Wavers, issued in the days when Caustic Resin guitarist Brett Netson was part of BTS. Definitely much weirder than There's Nothing Wrong With Love, and a dang good hello/goodbye record for both bands. --Adem Tepedelen

Since there were several reviews on other BTS recordings, I decided to review this one. Incidenly, "When not being stupid is not enough" is my favorite, favorite BTS song (I have several favorites). The song captures all I like about BTS and music as a whole (truth be told). Great, straight foward lyrics, not too much production, and exposive, explorative guitar. Doug solos for several minutes before even thinking about singing. It brings to mind one of my favorite all time songs, Neil Young's "Cortez the Killer".
The rest of the songs are great, as well, but no match for the opener. There are only 4 songs, so the price is steep (thus 4 star rating). BTS beginners should start out with one of the full length recordings, first.
I have seen BTS in concert. Don't miss them when they come around. Because if you like music, they are truly the real deal.

From curious pop hooks to extended guitar noodling, BtS stands as the greatest jamming band in the world. This release, consisting of the instant classic, "When Not Being Stupid Is Not Enough," as well as the brilliantly delicious cover of Kicking Giant's "She's Real" is a must for any BtS fan. Although the cover has changed (There used to be a hatching chick), the music takes you where it will. A virtual guitar symphony, "When Not Being Stupid..." stands out as the most brilliant track of BtS's history.

"When Not Being Stupid is Not Enough" is enough reason to buy this, though in fact every song on here is a winner in its own way. The cover of Kicking Giant's "She's Real" is another jaw-dropper; in the liner notes it is claimed that this version isn't as good as the original, "Superior" version...that's just not true, but it's nice to know that Doug & co. are mad geniuses AND modest to boot!

Doug Martsch has been making amazing, yet virtually unheard of music for years. BTS and Caustic Resin make a good team. There's only a few songs, but they are vital to a collection.

A rather fun EP Dec 9 2005
By Stargrazer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It took a while to grow on me, enamored as I was of "Keep It Like A Secret" -- but grow it did! When you've digested all you can of "accessible" BTS and are ready to stretch your legs, this is a good way to do it.

That or go see them live.
