Six months later and Crosses (†††) are back with their second self-titled EP. Overall the music is rather upbeat for the most part, but then gradually slides into more somber territory in the second half. "Fron†iers" opens up and stylistic changes begin to step out. The drumming sounds more live than before, with their programmed beats taking a break. In this song, as well as some of the others, Chino Moreno takes on a sort of Simon Le Bon approach to his singing. It reeks of Duran Duran, which isn't a bad thing. Add to that distant echoes with post-punk riffs and you have a solid opener.
