3.0 out of 5 stars I must go along with the crowd June 22 2002
Format:Audio CD
This EP is pretty good, especially song #3. My biggest problem is that the cd is so very short that it is not worth the money unless you are a big follower of his music like myself. The quality of the songs are a little rough around the edges especially the first song. But not bad for his first solo project. For those of you new to Dashboard, it is just Chris Carrabas(the singer) and his guitar. He evokes such emotions with his amazing voice, that you just about cry right when you hear the songs. This is a classic example of emo/indie rock. This is mostly slower music and would not recommend this to anyone who is just interested in pop or punk but emo punks should enjoy. You may also recognize his voice from a band called Further Seems Forever, an emo/punk band he used to belong to before he went solo. Further Seems Forever's album is also amazing and recommend it to anyone who likes Dashboard. I also recommend any new comers to Dashboard to start with Swiss Army Romance, his first full length album, instead of The Drowning EP.

4.0 out of 5 stars overpriced yet impressive. June 28 2001
Format:Audio CD
Dashboard Confessional, a.k.a. Chris Carrabba, wrote all these songs in one night in 1998. They were quickly recorded. Considering the first Dashboard LP, Swiss Army Romance, came out in 2000, this is an early yet interesting offering from Chris. There are no backing vocals, no real production tricks, and you can even hear how old the mixing board and microphones are.
Essentially, it's Chris in his most stripped down form: in an emotional frenzy, he wrote 3 songs and put them down in the studio.
Each track is impressive in it's own rights, as are with most of his songs. However... this cd should really be priced around (...) bucks. Not to knock on Chris and saying his music isn't worth the (...) dollars, but for three three minute songs, it's only for a real true fan, only.
So if you want to get a feel for Dashboard confessional, go get either of the first 2 LPs. Once you're addicted, get this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Chris Jan. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
I suggest you only get this if you are a true follower. To me these three songs are my favorites. They were what made me love Chris so much. Ever since I first heard them I have been hooked on Dashboard and can't stop listening. If you aren't sure whether you like him or not I'd say that you should get "Places You Have Come to Fear the Most" and then think about spending the $30-$40 on these three magnificent songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Screw you guys Sept. 19 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
WTF are you guys thinking... It is rough around the edges BECAUSE it was written and recorded in one night. It is short because it was his FIRST step as a solo artist. He was testing the water so to say. So, when you can write music like he can... then you can be a critic. If you were smarter than a rock, you would have figured this all out by now. My opinion is that this EP is worth the money, and the So Impossible EP is worth even more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ouch! June 26 2002
Format:Audio CD
The songs are good, the only 3 songs. I paid [money] for this CD. This is very pricey and it made me mad! But I really like the songs. I just wish there was more than 3. That's why I gave it 3 stars, for the price, and how many songs are on it. So find another way to get the songs, for wasting your money on 3 good songs is not worth it.

1.0 out of 5 stars CARRABA=NO TALENT May 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
What we have here with this band/artist is the recent "emo" craze preying on the sappy emotions of our society's troubled youth with what seems to be "deep and emotional" songs. This music is not very good. What seems like catchy and creative guitar rifts is really a feminine man raping his guitar by strumming it too hard. All of his songs are about love lost in a cold autumn/winter/November. If you have a lot of unchecked emotions and want to pool your self-loathing and depression, than by all means give in and by this horrible record and dye your hair black, but if you want self-respect, look much further than Dashboard Confessionals. The CD is called Freakin' the dromning! Carraba must know what his albumn does to people! If you sing about how no one likes you, what does that say?

3.0 out of 5 stars Only for followers of this man's music April 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Chris Carraba is a good songwriter and his songs never feel half baked, but no one would buy this release unless they were a hardcore fan. I paid ten dollars for this EP and it's only 7 minutes worth of music, that's a lot for a little. I'm a fan so it's not as distressing to me, but when I think of an EP, I'm thinking of a recording between 10 and 20 minutes. ... I just wonder why he released this EP with so little material. I know that he wrote these three songs and recorded them in one night, but for the sake of the fans Chris, please include more material in the EP's from now on until the end of your career.
