Thursday live = greatness

"All I have to say is that if you are a fan of Thursday, this albeit short but outstanding CD will keep you entertained for hours on end. It takes the already brilliant tracks from the CD and adds both the live sound (which, in my opinion, sounds better than studio produced music) and improvization. On top of that you get a new track, Jet Black New Year. This track is a little different than the sound of Full Collapse (it leans more towards the sound of their other CD, War All the Time) but it is nonetheless fantastic. Oh this CD is so good! - why are you still reading? Buy it now!"
Thursday Jet Black New Year

"Five songs, to hold me over for two more weeks until i get to see them live in Pittsburgh, so this cd was a must have. The first four tracks are all tracks from "Full Collapse" and the live versions are engertic and amazing. I cannot wait to see these guys, but i was more so curious about the new song Jet Black New Year, i listened through the entire cd, until it started. Then i was hooked, an amazing song, Thursday seems to have progressed and i do not feel that they have sold out in any way. The liner notes to the cd contain a tale of New Year's from each of the six memebers (Andrew on keyboards is new) and while they are all very good, Geoffs, the singers is the saddest. If you are a fan, pick this disc up, i am confident that you will not be dissappointed."

"Thursday, despite being a stellar band (one of my favorites), are a difficult band to get into. It took me months with 'Full Collapse' before it clicked. So, if you are new to Thursday, and are looking for somewhere to start, don't start here. This is really for fans only. Included are four live tracks, 'Autobiography of a Nation,' 'Paris in Flames,' 'Standing on the Edge of Summer' and their biggest hit 'Understanding in a Car Crash.' I am happy to report that not only are these some of Thursday's best tracks, but they also sound awesome performed live. Also included is a new studio track 'Jet Black New Year,' which, while not being Thursday's best, is still an excellent song. Obviously this EP was pieced together quickly (Just like this review, wink wink). It's main purpose was to get Thursday out of their contract with Victory records so they could move on and get a deal with Island/Def Jam (look out for the new album this summer). If you are a Thursday fan, this should hold you over until the next album, and if you are new to the band, try 'Full Collapse' and 'Waiting' first."
