I have yet to hear this cd, so I can not comment on its recording quality, the craft involved in the mixing, the 'flow' of the tracks from first to last, or the overall merits of the liner notes as they relate a new band's philosphy, etc. However, my son and I (his first concert- eleven years old) saw them warm up for the Tragically Hip last night at the Landmark Theater, in Syracuse NY, and this band rocks. Part Beach Boys, part Ramones, part Pearl Jam (or, potentially, the more obvious Tragically Hip), they were dynamite. They played nearly the entirety of this ep, and, although some of the songs fell too easily into formula, I was excited enough to purchase the cd. I spent the drive home kicking myself for not buying it right there! Will they catch on here in the states? Probably not, sadly. I've been listening to the Hip for eleven years, and still have to constantly answer the question "Tragically who?" Could our bretheren to the north really be that much better informed? (A difficult question, as they did saddle the world with Celine Dion and Alanis...).
