Yeah, any reason why this in particular is reviewed now? This was my jam when I was in 6th form FFS. Not even like it is an in depth review or anything.

I think Heartache is the only one I would go back to now. The band as a whole hasn't dated too well for me. Probably just because of my associations with it all, being 16/17/18 years old at the time these records bring back some memories I'd rather forget. And some good ones too...
I actually requested a track off this to be played at prom but the organising committee wouldn't go for it. Dunno why, its pretty poppy!

Well, it's always better to have a review than to not have it. It's nice to fill in gaps and Jesu are cool, so it's great seeing them here=)

That being said, I tend to disagree with the review on a couple of points.

I find the rating too high, Star is an awful, happy song and it is enough to drag the rating down. Dead Eyes is also a bad song=)

This is definitely not the heaviest thing Jesu have done, the first two full lengths are heavier, let alone Heart Ache which would crash Silver in an instant=)

Anyway, early Jesu is pretty great (especially Heart Ache, that one is superb) and though I'd keep only Wolves from this EP, it's still enjoyable=)

I was never really into Jesu or Jesus, for that matter... I don't know, some of the songs sound like Slowdive (or Slowdie, like I use to call them) to me... :)

Yeah, that's the one I asked for at prom. Easily as lame as the crap the pop-punk kids requested.

No particular reason: it's a first review submission, for a band on our list that's not previously had anything covered, so I figured it's filling an appropriate gap. And as an EP, I'm content for it to be a shorter-format style.
Plus, it seems to have provoked a lively discussion, so that's a bonus :D
