"You MUST buy this EP for three reasons 1) The gorgeous record cover 2) The first recorded rendition of Drown Soda which then reappears in a lot of different ways 3) The song "pale blue eyes" -which was once a nice relatively quiet ballad- and listen to Courtney and the rest of Hole thrash the living daylights out of it. You listen to it and remember not so long before she sang this song which is obviously dedicated Kurt, her husband, the father of her child, her love of her life, her soulmate shot himself in the head. And to make it all that much worse his body was found a day before her second album, the first big label debut "Live Through This" was released. Just listen to it. You will suddenly remember all the rubbish about her killing him, and all the horrible things that was said. And all that absolute anguish is mixed into her voice, her soul at that very moment. And you can't believe she is performing. With the added madness of the band, Kirsten, Eric's lover and base player of the band ODs on Heroin less than a month later. There you have it. Patty bashing away at her anger, and Eric ramming the strings together as everything has fallen apart. This is the Courtney as she was in 1994. Druged up, Falling apart. Before the Vanity Fair Cover, the Big Hollywood studios makeover. Her own healing. This was CL at her rawest moment, her most down. And although you don't hope she will ever go down that again. Just to have it, just to listen to it. You will be just so glad you have a recording of it."

"I love this recording. It's a lot like Pretty On the Inside or Live Through This, so don't think it's gonna be like that Celebrity Skin crap. If this were longer and had tracks like Baby doll or Burn Black it'd be better than Live Through This. This represents Hole truefully, even better than POTI does. It has decent artwork. I'm gonna give a review for each song:Over the Edge- I own this same version on a specialty bootleg, so no surprise, it's a great cover. Played nicely & has great lyrics. Great riffs. Pale Blue Eyes- I own this song, too, on a specialty bootleg, It's live and is from a great artist, Lou Reed, very nice live version, although not like original. Drown Soda- This is a totally awesome song w/ nice lyrics. Deserved better attention than it got. (Buying this cd is worth this song alone). Greatest song on cd, one of Hole's best, one of the best songs ever. Dollparts- an older different version. Almost as good as the one on LTT, so an awesome (one of best Hole songs) song that everyone knows. Acoustic. Violet- Not as much screaming as original, which is strange cuz' it's an old version. A bit different than that of Ltt, but it's still very good. Forming/Hot Chocolate Boy- Not only are they both covers w/ good names, they are combined into one song. The forming part is better. This song has interesting lyrics. A part of it seems to remind one of New Wave, but it's a raw rock song like the rest. It has a great beginning and end.Only complaint: way too short. About 18 min. long!! So, everyone buy it. Especially Hole fans. Great introduction to people who have never heard Hole."

"This cd is wonderful......OVER THE EDGE is an awesome cover song,and of course its better then the original,PALE BLUE EYES is a fun punk rock live version song and it is beautiful.....but for some reason when its loud it just burns your ears,i think because it was a live recording so beware,DOLL PARTS whatever version is a more raw and faster version then the first and can make you cry.....DROWN SODA is the best song on the cd...she makes you feel her pain..without a doubt..VIOLET the older version is kinda muffled but it is alot more raw and wrenching.....its good too...then FORMING/HOT CHOCOLOTTE BOY is really punky and poppy at the same time.....great!!GET THE ALBUM......IT WILL MAKE YOU LOOK AT THEIR OLD AND NEW WORK DIFFERENTLY."
