This EP almost seems like a waste to put out, with its four songs clocking in at approximately eight minutes. With such a short overall length (even for an EP), the album seemingly lacks much depth. Love Is a Battlefield contains a cover of "Can't Help Falling in Love," but no cover of the title track, which makes it rather misleading. However, the songs that are on here are positive and fun, catchy and melodic, very reminiscent of mid-'90s pop-punk. The harmonies are in full effect and effective in their delivery -- yet, musically, no new ground is being broken. Unless this album is incredibly cheap or one is a die-hard Hi-Standard fan, there's really no reason to own this.
