I like this EP, it got a little overshadowed by the new Silversun Pickups album, but it is certainly a good listen.

It's probably not worth it for you, though it is only about fifteen minutes. I can't see anyone really liking this after not liking Stairs.

I was highly disappointed in narrow stairs, honestly. It sounded like a bunch of Death Cab b-sides. It didn't have the same magic as Plans/Transatlanticism/The Photo Album had for me.

I picked this up on record store day for 5 bucks either way for a friend of mine. I don't mind the songs, just easily forgettable is all.

I really like Open Door as well, but I think it sounds pretty different than NS, much more upbeat on the whole.

I didn't like Narrow Stairs at first, but it grew on me.

I really liked Narrow Stairs and the Open Door. I feel like any of the songs off of Open Door should have replaced Talking Bird. (except of course, Talking Bird)

Narrow Stairs was one of my top albums for 2008, and this EP is the perfect extension of it.

I really love this EP, it sounds a lot poppier than Narrow Stairs.

This isn't a b-side EP is it? I thought it was songs that were written that didn't fit the 'vibe' of Narrow Stairs so kept them back.
