Finally Cursive's follow up to their album Domestica, this time around, they have been shaped into a more technically diverse band. They have added Gretta Cohn on cello, which adds intensity and emotion to their sound on this album. After the first song that focuses on the views of Cursive as a band, it is as the song says a "unique approach to start and EP". I must admit that I did enjoy their first release, but this surpasses the pervious one by leaps. These guys go above and beyond any expectations you could place on them. They are not the type to sing only about relationships, they look to a darker side and do not worry about going into the unknown or untouched areas of the soul and mind. They ebb in and out of the upbeat and harmonious to the dark and dreary unknown. If you've never listened to these guys, you don't know what you're missing. Check this EP out on CD or 12".
