Review :

Review : Well this is just a odd EP. It’s about 20 minutes long and features 22 songs. Half covers and half originals. Too bad it really isn’t anything special. I mean the songs range from hardcore , post-hardcore, pop punk, and just plain boring. You’ll go from a good hardcore song to some soft singing. Plus the “Short Songs” cover is horrible to say the least. The best song is “SOS” and that’s because it sounds like a good hardcore song. “My Miserable Life” is also decent but between the hardcore parts they decided to add some bad singing to it. “Sin And Redemption” and “First Song” are really just mediocre while “Brookfield” and “Sleep Around” are just bad with the singing. Overall it’s a short EP and other than maybe 2 songs it really isn’t any special.
