CD Reviews

Early GBV at their best!
Bruce A. Dunkle | Greenville, PA United States | 10/29/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a classic! All of the aspects of GBV that really grabbed me are contained within this E.P. If one listens to the "Get Out Of My Stations" E.P., you'll notice the noisey tape hiss, and the songs seem half finished. Now don't get me wrong, I dig the lo-fi aspect of early GBV, but "Fast Japanese Spin Cycle" contains fantastic power-pop gems. Really not much experimentation going on here, just wonderfully crafted tunes by Robert Pollard. Check out "My Impression Now", and the amped-up version of "Marchers in Orange". The E.P. closes with an acoustic version of "Kisses To The Crying Cooks" that will simply make you cry for all of it's simplistic beauty."
Worthy of a purchase by all GbV fans...

"You are reading this review because you are wondering if this EP is worth the price you'll pay for it. If you are paying $10 or less, than it is.

It's short, at only about 15 minutes. It is probably only for GbV enthusiasts, who are obsessive completists by nature anyways. For its length, it contains several essential GbV tracks, and therefore cannot be easily slotted into the "hardcore fans only" slot. "My Impression Now" is excellent, "Indian Fables" is among their best acoustic fare since "14 Cheerleader Coldfront", "Dusted" is a good reworking of the original track, and "Kisses to the Crying Cooks" is a masterful reworking of the very excellent "Over the Neptune" that appeared on the "Propeller" album.

If you have a half-dozen or so albums by Pollard and/or GbV, I woiuld recommend this album as a good compliment to what you already have."
Best 12-minute album you'll ever hear!

"At over fifty cents per minute these had better be great songs, and they are. There are enough hooks here for the last 3 GBV albums, which should tell you how great the old stuff was (sorry Bob - I understand your need to evolve though). The disc (at least the old version I have) comes in one of those low-budget cardboard covers similar to LPs, which seems to cause this disc to disappear from my collection and then reappear occasionaly for several consecutive listenings. The cliche "pop gem" truly applies here."
