Prepare To Be Wrong?
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 18/10/2007 14:33:49
Take note of the title on the first listen of this CD - prepare to be wrong, because this isn't the re-hash of the self-titled full length.
Opening with the Azure Ray-esque 'I Don't Want This Anymore', Prepare To Be Wrong couldn't be any further away from the tireless emo tag they seem to have been weighed down with. Michelle Nolan's vocals are showcased in a track some think too long for an introduction but in my opinion, could not be long enough.
'It Never Gets Easier' follows on, which some may already know as 'Costello'. Slightly different to the original, this track is more of a return to Straylight Run's familiar pop-rock sound. The highlight of this EP, however, is 'Hands In The Sky (Big Shot)' - without a shadow of a doubt. A very well chosen next single, this is the song that may rocket Straylight Run to infinity... and beyond. Don't be fooled by the slow intro - the ending is a killer, and Michelle complements John perfectly.
The only negative comment to be made is not that it is not long enough, but that only half of these tracks are 'new'. As mentioned previously, 'It Never Gets Easier' is a re-recording that didn't make the debut. 'A Slow Descent' is a re-recording of one of the first demos from the band, and the Bob Dylan cover 'With God On Our Side' has been floating around in a different format for quite a while now. These tracks are all top-notch, as always, but the lack of new material may disappoint some fans.
That said, Straylight Run are certainly worth your hard-earned.
