A short, 4-track EP released between Sink Or Swim and The ‘59 Sound, showcasing a couple more songs in the punk vein from the band. It’s not the best collection in the world, but it has the absolutely epic “Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts” (an obvious reference to Bruce Springsteen in the “Born In The USA” era).
It’s also got a reference to Meat Loaf: in Señor and The Queen, it rips off a little bit of “Paradise By The Dashboard Light”, so it’s not bad in some aspects, more for the completionist than a general fan, but you can get it relatively cheap on iTunes if you fancy it.
But, the must-listen track is “Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts” and this track alone makes the EP worthwhile, because it’s so heartfelt and sincere.
(1) Señor And The Queen – Heavy and with some shifting dynamics, TGA are obviously experimenting a bit, and the chorus is pretty damn good too.
(2) Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis – Isn’t that one bit from “Halleluja”? Yeah it is, kinda. Chorus is kinda clever too.
(3) Say I Won’t (Recognize) – They’re having a party, so the music is fast and fun and a little bit bouncy near the end.
(4) Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts – Slow and sincere, thought out and poetic, this track sends shivers up your spine. It’s a little bit haunting to boot, and the chorus is just epic, so it’s definately a must-buy for fans of the band.
