First off, the picture disc itself for this Off with Their Heads' 12" EP is ridiculous. It's shaped exactly how it's pictured above. Pirates Press does some insane stuff, but even this is wacky cool. But how are the tunes?

I Will Follow You offers four previously unreleased cuts from the increasingly popular, misanthropic punks. The title track is a slow chugger that's almost power-pop compared to the band's usual barking romps. It's a nice change. Then comes covers of Cleveland Bound Death Sentence's "Drain" and "East Pack River". The former basically just sounds like Off with Their Heads (but with more interesting vocal maneuvers), while the latter is probably more aggressive than you'll ever hear the band. "Janie" is a live version from a November 2009 show–a Pirates Press 5th Anniversary Party, and the recording is pretty great.

For a four-song EP, I Will Follow You is criminally short (a shade under six minutes total), but the visual aspect makes it a nice collector's item for fans.

CBDS are my favourite Cometbus band.

songs are alright but nothing special either. Shaped vinyl is annoying especially if it costs a premium, the release to me looks cheesy or else I might have bought it.

its not even the $3 put minute that bothers me, its that picture discs just NEVER look cool. I would much rather have a regular 7" in some sort of interesting packaging.
That said, I'll probably still end up getting this because waiting for their next rarities collection could be a while.

This reminds me of that clown head shaped picture disc Killing Joke did for their 2003 album; the shape is so weird that there isn't any room for actual grooves so once the novelty of looking at it wears off you're left paying about $3 per minute of music.

Janie is one of my favorite OWTH songs, but the studio version sounds so awful. I almost always listen to this version anymore.

This is probably the most awesome picture disc I own! Someone put this on mediafire, my record player is broken and I don't want to have to go to my mom's house to listen to it anymore!

Solid. "I Will Follow You" is a great tune, while the CBDS cover is good.
Live track... I could take it or leave it.
