wheather you're a long time fan or new to dc, this is a must have!
This CD is also completely acoustic which I believe is what makes DC so unique. Some of his newer releases have involved a band (drums and bass) on some songs and I think this has caused some of these very passionate songs to lose their charm (I think that DC sound the least acoustic on what is meant to be an "unplugged' album). I'm also aware of the fact that he must evolve and change but I think bass and drums are too big a jump at the moment and believe this recording is a perfect evolution for the time being. Here he has simply included another acoustic guitar to bolster the music, one playing lead the other for rhythm, and also a very sparse arrangement of piano that works beautifully.
As a lover of acoustic music I can't recommend this highly enough, brilliantly written, wonderfully arranged, and passionately performed, what more do you want? Lets just hope that the next album isn't too full of bass and drums.
Brilliant - 5 stars
In a personal preference, this CD shows Carrabba's depth and growth as a songwriter and lyricist. In his previous releases, he stuck with 2 main guitar tunings (Db sus2 and standard) and sung in a loud, declarative fashion. His lyrics, though descriptive and personal, never really deviated emotionally. On the new EP he has managed to expand his musical and lyrical depths. Songs such as "For You to Notice" and "Hands Down" demonstrate his new-found penchant for description and song writing skills. The addition of Dan Hoerner to the band has made a dramatic difference: Dan's presence allowed more depth in the music and a second guitar, bringing in a second melody line throughout most of the songs.
In short, it's my favorite Dashboard Confessional release to date. For the casual listener it's extremely catchy and easily his most accessible music to date, along with his best. Most fans should be satisfied with it and the new listeners will find this his most enjoyable piece of music to date. In short, pick this up.

Ok, so I try not to admit to liking Dashboard. Their lyrics are often cheesy and overly-dramatic, but I just can't help but listen to this EP. These songs are just too catchy. Read morePublished on July 1 2003 by Christian Nelson
