"While not a typical MBM release, it's worth buying to get a good introduction to the world of Jack Dangers and crew. The EP consists of 4 tracks, 2 new ones and 2 previous studio tracks. Out of the new tracks, "Fire Number 9" is fairly good and very straight forward, but nothing new or revolutionary. Just a good fun track to listen to. On the other hand, "Soul Driver" is one of my favorite MBM tracks of all time. A slow meltdown of flute, Jack's paranoid raps, and a barrage of drums, the feeling the track gives off is familiar to taking one too many bong hits and feeling your mind spiral down into euphoria. "Drop", which was released on the "Satyricon" album, gets a live treatment here. Live drums and more of a playful feeling to it than the studio version. Finally, "Radio Babylon", essentially the track that put MBM on the map. This version lays every other version to waste. And to my suprise, there are vocals! It's pure bliss. I'd recommend this CD to either people just starting to listen to Meat Beat Manifesto or people well aquainted with their work. You will not be disappointed."
