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.

Although comprised of just six songs, The No Fun E.P. proves to be an excellent all-around album for Local H's many loyal fans. A number of these tracks could've easily come from Ham Fisted, Local H's grunge-felt 1995 debut. And on the other hand, the lyrics on all the tracks are right up there with the best of this two-member group. The song "Birth, School, Work, Death" (a cover of The Godfathers original) has been floating around in downloadable formats and was featured on a 7" with The Black Theory. Clearly, the recording of it here is by far the best one yet. Understandably, it's very hard to say that this CD is better than any of their previous four, because it's only 28 minutes of music. But all these songs are excellent and many rank amongst the best of Local H. Here's an overview of each song:
1. No Fun - 5/5 - I had heard this song back in December when I saw Local H live; and therefore I greatly anticipated the release of The No Fun E.P. I don't know why they didn't entitle it "No Fxckin' Fun", because that seems to be the basis of the song. It's a very emotional song that holds some of the album's best lyrics. Oddly enough, it's (probably) only third best. Still great though.
2. President Forever - 5/5 - this just might be my favorite song on the album. The title leads you to believe it's a political song; and it's exactly that. Scott Lucas' lyrics let us know what he'd do if he was the President... forever. The lyrics are just so amazing that they seemingly take Local H's lyrical talents to a higher level. The excerpts about the First Lady and Iraq are awe-inspiring, in a manner of speaking.
3. Birth, School, Work, Death - 5/5 - although a cover song, the lyrics fit in perfectly with this CD's objective.

When I first heard this, I was disappointed. After a few listens, my opinion of the new Local H songs improved, but not my opinion of their covers. The new Local H songs might be Local H-by-the-numbers, but are catchy enough to warrant a listen. The covers are not very catchy or good. Local H's performance just accentuates the covers' hooks (since Local H is all about the hooks), which are quite dated and therefore not catchy. Oh well. The new Local H songs are worth listening to, but most likely not for the price you'd pay for this new.
