|One bad thing could be that, because these songs are composed so differently that some of the people who are already big fans of this band may be a tad turned off because they are so different from the originals. This is arguably the only downside to this album, but because this is such an easy thing to get over, it takes next to nothing away from how great the EP truly is, and the last song on the album (the only new song) is enough to make fans of the self-titled not care about how much the old tracks have changed.|
I disagree. I am a huge fan of the full length and I think the reworked acoustic versions are great, especially "I'm Afraid of Myself and Everything I Haven't Done". This EP has really got me excited to hear more new songs. Hopefully they'll record sooner rather than later.
