this is a fine ep, for all you b-side craving emokids. it truly is a must-have for all hardcore jimmy eat world fans. "lucky denver mint" and "for me this is heaven" appear on the "clarity" record and are fine songs in their own right. the demo version of "your new..." is great. a true gem of a song. it bears little resemblance to the song of the same name that appears on the "clarity" album. a few of the lyrics are the same, but other than that, it is completely different. "rollerqueen" is a dandy, too. with it's incessant guitar harmonics and other 'sounds' , it is fantastic. i feel that it is too good to be a b-side. at the same time, it is too strange to be placed on a record released by a major label. "softer" is the only song on this ep that doesn't really do much of anything for me. it sounds all to similar to the tracks on "static prevails". a good track, indeed, but not at all spectactular. if you like this, i recommend the following: "clarity" by jimmy eat world. "songs for the brokenhearted" compilation. "foma" by the nixons, and... "diary" by sunny day real estate.
