While Tuesday's full-length would explore the better side of emo, this EP uses direct punk-pop in an attempt ram its message home. Unfortunately, singer Dan Andriano's songs, both with this band and the Alkaline Trio, have always worked best as slow emotional crooners -- this jagged setting detracts from both his lyrics and his voice. The all-out punk rock of this release has the unfortunate effect of homogenizing his songs with the rest of the post-Green Day, late-'90s scene.
