The E.P. was decent, but they were basically re-treading old territory. I can't recall the specific example but there was a point in one of the songs where the chorus sounds almost exactly like the chorus in "What Separates Us All."
However, given the press release? Fuck. I have high hopes! Fat Wreck isn't known for gratuitous statements about "perfect" releases and the like. I'm hesitantly ecstatic on hearing this one. Lots of room for disappointment. I hope they branched out a bit and amped it up at the same time. If that makes sense.
