Although Bracket doesn't necessarily fit into the typical Fat Wreck Chords category of galloping, silly pop-punk, they will still have a hard time shaking off the fact that their ultra-harmonized vocals and three-chord guitar riffs don't break any ground within this genre. But even so, Bracket still stands out as one of the better bands who will inevitably be compared to the likes of Green Day and No Use for a Name. The only problem is that both "Why Should Eye" and "Missing Link" come across as throwaway tracks from one of their full-length albums that does this band so much more justice. And since this EP is out of print, bs. is more suited for die-hard fans only.
