It's not the full-throttle rock masterpiece that Supersonic Storybook suggested, but the Stull EP is almost as remarkable. Opening with a straight cover of Neil Diamond's "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" (which fits Urge Overkill's image perfectly), the EP is an atmospheric guitar workout. While "Stitches" is a salute to their punk roots, the most impressive moments come during the stylish kiss-off to indie-rock "Goodbye to Guyville" and "Stull," with its sly, laidback groove. As the richness of Stull proves, Urge's vision was too large for the independents, and it was time to move on.
