The second installation in the "Firepile" series roughly follows the same sequencing template of the first, even though it begins with a reverential remix of the title track. The song is reworked mildly; the master tracks are tweaked just enough to imply a slight difference in arrangement, but the changes are little more than superficial. There are two exceptional covers here, one being of Peter Prescott's (Mission of Burma) "Jak," which was originally recorded by Volcano Suns, and the other is an instrumental makeover of the Velvet Underground ‘s "Ride into the Sun." The EP is rounded out with the biting outtake "Handsome Woman."
