Balls to them though for not having any Radiohead, Beatles or Cold Chisel.
It's not iTunes's fault they don't have those bands. Either the band or their label has refused to licence iTunes to sell the music.

Good work complaining about the DRM. It is horrible. It's also nice to have the higher bitrate, but 98% of people can't distinguish between 128kbps and CD quality, so the extra data doesn't noticable improve anything unless the listener is actively trying hard to spot a difference.

Thank you for the link!

Here is my list (from favorite to worst)
1. Rose March (best song)
2. Pox (good) :|
3. Sunkissed (might take a few listens) :|
4. Again, Again, Again (The Crux) (yuck!)

Im getting Zwan flashbacks from 'Again, Again, Again' and 'Sunkissed'
I liked Zwan though so thats cool

Is it me, or do the drums in every song sound like they werent played by Jimmy?

Not a bad EP, I'd prefare something like this over Zeitgeist

Overall I like the e.p but just like Zeitgeist some of the songs have a choral billy bit that makes me cringe. The opening guitar to The Rose March is absolutely stunning and then...... "La la la la fucks sake!" Jimmy needs to have a word with him about this coz its getting out of control. The quality of The Rose March still washes this small annoyance away but like Zeitgeist its these small things that prevent true greatness. If they had recorded 'Sunkissed' like the song 'Zeitgeist' then it would be really beautiful but it has that galloping guitar hammer-on which is really hard to ignore. 'Pox' is strange, I can't decide if its just not a good song or its going to grow on me, fingers crossed its the later. Its too early to tell but hopefully A.G will be a grower, but hey its new pumpkins material and its not shite.

I'm having a hard time deciding if I like this or not. Once again the vocal production is fairly horrible and I'm not feeling the lyrics at all.

However..

- Electric guitars overall sound gorgeous here. Especially Again Again Again
- Rose March 3:40 forwards. Perfect reminder of why I love this band.
- Jimmy
- The darker feel in Pox. Nice bass there

I shall give this a few more listens. The first time around it sounded disappointing, but now once I'm past the vocals being what they are, I'm beginning to enjoy it.

These are probably the same labels that complain that everyone illegally downloads their music.... all because they won't put it up for sale on iTunes.

It seems like he had a decent starting point for these songs, recorded them with just an acoustic guitar, and then went over them and added way too much... They would've been nice if left simple. Especially [The] Rose March...

fuck

fuck

chorus upon chorus of billys REMAINS.

why does he think that sounds good?

some of this is okay though, the end of rose march is beautiful

if pox was electric, it would be the best "rocker" they've released since the reunion.

I could commit myself to find something I like about this EP, but I think that my overall impression would remain: totally boring :/

There's a huge Zwan vibe with it, but I didn't want to say anything...

Why didn't he use Ginger or Lisa as additional vocals? Does the Itunes stuff have credits? I wouldn't be surprised if it was just Jimmy and Billy.
