Anybody check out the Vibration I EP released today?  Probably could start a thread for it but I'm not sure EP's deserve their own thread :lol:

Anyhow, for me it's pretty good.   We'd already heard 3 songs so only 2 "new" songs on it.  I think Do You, Keep Me Alive and Revolution are all pretty good and are probably the "keepers" for me here.  You Will Remain is okay but not really doing a lot for me.  And the last song To The Moon and Back is a cover and I rarely get excited about covers.  I guess the good thing here is I had never heard of the original song so it basically feels like an original to me and it's decent enough. 

Overall, seems like it's a fairly "light" EP and doesn't have much edge to it like say songs like The Crown, Harder To Breathe, etc.  Still decent stuff that's melodic and catchy though.  I think mostly I just have a real hard time getting excited about EP's in general and there is nowhere near the same buzz as there is when it's a full album.  I kinda question the decision to release an EP and to switch away from Frontiers when they seemed to really increase their buzz with the last album.  Think they are planning a second EP later this year...Hopefully both are combined into a single CD down the road.  

 

I get the feeling Frontiers wants too much control.

I like these guys but the singer is still the weakest link IMO.

He's actually the reason I listen to the band. His vocal style is the only thing that sets them apart from every other Melodic Hard Rock band out there.

Yep, this and also the hooks and melodies.
His voice is perfectly suited to the music.

Thanks for the reminder, I had forgotten all about the release date for their new EP,  I plan to check it out today.  But I agree, while I am grateful for some new tunes, I'd have thought they'd just hold off a little longer and include as part of a new full length.  It will be interesting to see where things go from here for the guys with leaving Frontiers.

Got the physical EP and have to give them a couple props.  I traditionally dislike EP's and not really a fan of buying them as the ones I've bought in the past are usually in cardboard sleeves and cheaply done. 

This one though came packaged nicely in a jewel case with lyrics in the booklet.  Nice touch.

That said, I still don't like the idea of EP's and that I had to pay a full CD price to get it.  Basically just get half the music for the same cost.  But at least it was well put together ;)

Gotta say, not a mad fan of these guys like a lot of folk here, but this is a good EP. I was actually looking forward to the Savage Garden cover, but that was a disappointment. The original song is better. But their four original songs were all quite good. Good solid EP.

Brilliant e.p pity they couldn't just wait and have a full release...because as tts42572 pointed out its still priced as full priced release and with postage it was actually more expensive for me...worth it in a way because it is so good but a few more tunes wouldn't have went a miss  :) but these guys are just growing and going from strength to strength.

Enjoying this one... even the Savage Garden cover.

Great band.

I hate how they release sampoles and songs before the EP is out.

I get it to a degree with full albums, release one, maybe two songs, to whet the appetites, but when you release one or two songs off a 5 tracj EP, it kind of removes the 'new music' vibe.
Would rather they release nothing before the nest one and get to hear all 5 tracks as they are new.

you don't have to listen to them. I didn't. 

hopefully part 2 will be this year and it will be like a full album :)

Yeah, I've only heard the one HEAT sample.

Liostened to both the posted FFDP songs and was a bit underwhelmed because they didn't have the surrounding songs I think.
Time will tell.
