This is a good ep, I just wish (like most other people) that it would have been a full LP. Oh well, it's not bad anyway. As others have stated, Scott definitely sounds more angry on this disc, especially on No Fun. It's a typical hard driving Local H song that is good to shout along with if you're not in the happiest of places. President forever has some entertaining lyrics (Gonna throw a party at Camp David...the First Lady's not invited, or, I'm President forever, if we can just agree on this one thing, you'll never have to vote again). It's a decent song, but not especially memorable.
I enjoy "Birth, School, Work, Death" quite a bit. The mini-guitar solo used during the chorus is catchy, and the crowd shouting sound in the chorus is used to good effect. "Cooler Heads" is another typical Local H just rocking out song. The Ramones cover of "I just..." is merely average. This may be due to the fact that I'm not really a big Ramones fan, so this song really isn't memorable to me.
"Fu&% Yeah, That Wide" is an entertaining song for a while, solely because of Scott just going nuts, but eventually it gets old. During a concert though, it's highly entertaining.
The only other disappointing this about this album is that the power of St. Clair's drumming just does not come through on this album. It didn't come through on "Here Comes the Zoo" either, and that's a shame. I've seen them play twice with St. Clair, and he is an animal on the drums. I can't believe they can take that kind of punishment, and that is what adds to Local H's appeal. They have a huge amount of power, but unfortunately the recording makes the drumming seem rather mute.
However, this is a good stop over point on the way to Local H's next full album, but it's probably not for casual fans.
