AllMusic Review by

This EP came out in 1985 in preparation for a 20-city tour after the Broken Records deal fell through. And the band is all the better for putting this little gem out. No filler here; all the songs are winners. There is still a little too much dependence on drum machines, which veil the Youth Choir's secret weapon, Steve Hindalong's drumming. However, he can be heard on "15 Doors," which alone is worth the cost of admission for this recording. Brooding, melancholy, exciting -- this wonderful sound transcends the time of its release. The EP was included in its entirety on the CD release of Chase the Kangaroo.
