Popular Demand is a really strong song to introduce a band like this. Very much still set in high school, but the chorus is quite catchy. I Want More shows off their chops a bit more as they switch genres in this song readily multiple times. It’s frankly a fantastic song and really is a great showing point for the band. Don Juan isn’t quite up to the same level but still very good. Very fun stuff.

Alternative Is Dead is fairly decent, but doesn’t really have any very high points aside from the hook. Desperate is pretty fun, and is a somewhat solid song. Nothing too bad. This EP is a great start for the band, with a couple great songs and some average ones. This is also the version with Chris Batstone singing, and I wish he had remained the lead singer for the band. It’s an EP that I do come back to now and again, so that’s good.

Final Rating: 7.5/10
