Anyway. This album reminded me why I liked Coldplay in the first place. It has only two songs of which are on Parachutes (one is exactly as it is on the album and the other is remixed), the others are only on there. But what I like about Coldplay is not only the vocals and great instruments complimenting each other so much, but it's the guitar sounds. I love echo. That and it's so filled with texture and yet suttle. It's impressive for who who notice it. This Ep has a lot of it (except on the Remixed version of Don't Panic). This Ep has only five tracks, but each one has a unique feel to it, a sense of belonging. High Speed is really dreamy and yet psychedelic, Such A Rush is a bit dark and yet really quiet, and Bigger Stronger is a kind of upbeat song that is kind of layed back, but sounds ultimately great. The new track that I absolutely love is See You Soon, With it being have silent with just vocals and acoustic guitar, this song has great memorable lyrics and clearly shows Coldplay's power over melody and lyrics. This Ep sure doesn't last long though. Since It's only five tracks, and they all run at least about five minutes long, you can probably get bored with this CD real quickly compared to Parachutes or some other Ep. But don't ignore this one though, it's better than you think.
