Good review! With time comes progress. I'm really glad to see everyone here is being so supportive of you as well; awesome! One thing I hate about this website is that everyone is a cynical critical prick. But not in this case. Anyways, this EP is amazing just as you described. It is not DGD's best work musically, but it is by far my favorite and deserves a lot more recognition.

Why is there no mention of Alexisonfire or ATDI? Considering that both of those bands heavily shaped DGD's influence on this record, I would have at least liked to see them in the RIYL section.

Also, lower definition? rly?? they're a lot closer to the layered, noisy mess that was Finch circa SHTS than DGD.

still not a bad review, though...

Thank you both. I wanted to include bands that sounded similar and appeal to the same general audience ad DGD in the RIYL, which is why I didn't include ATDI or Alexisonfire. (Even though Alexisonfire appeals to a similar audience and has a similar sound, I'm not all that familiar with them and didn't feel comfortable putting them in there.)

I also think it is not their best work musically, however, I still for some reason enjoy it more than the two full-lengths. I think that the s/t is their best musically.

coming from someone who liked the Foxy review? thats interesting, I thought this was well done
Coming from someone who WROTE the foxy review. Was kind of the point of the whole thing, the story. This was supposed to be an analytical thing.

Good review, bad EP, though I must admit Johnny Craig is a good singer.

Downtown Battle Mountain is a classic to me, this one's alright. The self-titled was ok, but I think I miss Johnny too much to make a rational decision. Nice review.
