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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A ... down, overpriced version of dashboard Oct. 23 2001
Format:Audio CD
When I listened to the recording, I expected the same wonderful instrumentation, sensational vocals and beautifully written songs. However, I heard little support my asumptions. While I understand that these were songs that Chris wrote and performed in the course of a day, it should not have been realeased. The songs are decent in their own right, especially anyone, anyone, but there is no comparison to the full length cds. The vocals are just Chris who doesn't sound as strong with out backing vocals. Also, the guitar rythyms are a little too bland to make an interesting listen. The lyrics were once again insightful and haunting, but were not as poetic or moving as the two LPs. Also it is way to short, the longest song, runs a shade over 2 and half minutes. When you buy a EP that cost 9 bucks but only get less than 8 minutes of music, that is some what of a .... Fidler Records wins the award for highest markup, lowest production quality, and least effort devoted to an 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.

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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Pricey, But Worth It Feb. 16 2002
Format:Audio CD
OK, I'll admit that The Drowning is a bit expensive for just over 7 minutes of music, but I think it's totally worth it. Of course I'm a huge Dashboard fan, so I may be a bit biased. But if you've got any of Chris' other CDs then you should get this to add to your collection. The fact that he wrote all these songs in one night is both impressive and strange, but it also leaves the songs in a raw state, leaving nothing but pure emotion in musical form. Despite what everyone says, there is not a bad song on this disc, all three are great. Anyways, if you know that you like Dashboard, then you should most definitely get this CD. If you don't KNOW that you like Dashboard, then stick with the LPs until you're hooked and then buy it. I doubt you'll regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars not too bad April 4 2001
Format:Audio CD
this cd ep is a collection of the first three songs that were written exclusively for dashboard confessional. they were recorded back in 1998, but they are immediately familiar, and could have fit on 'the swiss army romance'.
however, the fact that this cd has only three songs and lasts about seven and a half minutes might deter some folks from buying it, and rightfully so.
i like this cd. 'anyone, anyone' is most definately the standout track. however, i would only recommend this cd if you are a diehard dashboard confessional fan. if you are interested in getting something from this group(?), i recommend first purchasing one of the two full lengths.
