This 5 track EP isn't really essential, but if you're curious and have 5 or 6 bucks to throw around it may be worth your while. The first track sounds like textbook trail of dead, but isn't all that great a song to tell you the truth. The second song is, again, a textbook trail of dead song, but it seems to hold up better than the first track. The third track, "Crowning of a Heart", is a calm reflective piece which sounds like some of the latter tracks on ST+C. "Counting off the Days" sounds like Trail Of Dead covering a Sunny Day Real Estate (Rising Tide-era) song. The final track "Intelligence" is kind of a techno-ish departure from familiar Trail of Dead territory, perhaps indicating a new direction being taken on the next album? One of the great pluses to buying this EP is some great enhanced features on the disc which can be accessed by sticking the disc into a computer. Featuring some awesome artwork slides, a couple videos (live and otherwise), and some other little trinkets. Again, it's worth getting if you spot it and are curious, but chances are you don't really need this unless you're a collector.
