"They used to be Cooter.They also used to be not that good.With the name change comes a kickass new sound, apparently.I have all of Cooter's old stuff, and while it was enjoyable to listen to at the time, none of it was very memorable, and I have no desire to dig their CDs out of the boxes in my room.This, on the other hand, has been in constant rotation in my CD player in the past month.First and foremost, the production is top notch - from the opening chords of standout track "Long Way To Fall" to the closing feedback of "Wide Awake," the album sounds crisp and fresh. The major label backing has definitely paid off in that department.The guitar interplay is pretty advanced for a band of this style - a lot of it is just trading barre chords in different frets, but it sounds *cool* doing it. The vocal harmonies are neat, too, but the downside to that is that singer Chris is just that - the only singer. So live, kiss those harmonies bye-bye.Sure, the band's sound still ain't the most original sound in the world, but this EP is way more than a step in the right direction. These songs are catchy as hell punk rock. I wouldn't label it pop punk, or skate punk, or emo punk, or anything besides just good old punk rock. This is the EP you want to have blaring out of your car stereo driving down the highway to a show. I think I need to go dig out my old Cooter CDs to really make sure that they weren't this good all along and were just hiding it from me..."

"This is an awesome cd. It as a powerful opening song, "Long Way To Fall", and continues it aggressive, hard hitting pop punk feel all the way through "Wide Awake". Chris J's aggressive vocals and astonishing lyrics provide one with the same aggression in his/her heart while Chris and Chris, Rob, and Phil tear it up on their guitars and drums. The cd did not earn 5 stars from me because of, like their first release "Lookng UP", it's similarity. The only track that tears away from it's repeatitive sound is "Wide Awake". The mixing and mastering on the EP is outstanding. Pick up this record now and if you get a chance, go watch them in action LIVE. They put on a rad show and they are rad guys."

"This CD is truely awesome. I recently came upon their stuff on the internet and loved it. I found their CD online and bought it right then. The CD is only an EP so you dont get too many songs but the songs speak for themselves. Its [inexpensive] too so it makes up for it. If you like punk that has a little more of a rock feel than some of the newer blink stuff or NFG, than i know you'll love this. "Indebted" and "Nothing Frequency" truley rock as well as the rest of the CD. So if you're at all interested in buying this CD definitely get it!"
