Well, this is one of the finest EP's I've ever heard. I bought this EP back in Australia when The Living End was a local band, I was pretty amazed. The cover is fine, not so good art and the CD case is a little one. I think that this EP now is being selled with Hellbound in a 2 CD case (Hellbo.

Well, this is one of the finest EP's I've ever heard.

I bought this EP back in Australia when The Living End was a local band, I was pretty amazed. The cover is fine, not so good art and the CD case is a little one. I think that this EP now is being selled with Hellbound in a 2 CD case (Hellbound is not as good as It's For your own good).

The album begins with a awesome track, From here on in is probably the most amazing Living End song I've ever heard. When I first listened to it I was in love with this band. Talented guitar riffs and pretty nice voice combine with an excellent drumming and fine bass lines. It's unbelieveble that three guys can play this good. English Army, the next song is probably the song I enjoy the least in this EP but it's good. After this song you can find a mini-hit, One more Cell. It's an amazing song, great bass lines and very catchy.

After this one two more amazing songs come: Stay away from me and problem, to really cool songs. The last song of the EP is a Cure's cover, 10:15 Saturday Night is probably the best cover I've ever heard, it's amazing, well done and in my opinion much better than the original one.

This EP is worth your money, go and buy it now, it's a must have. Probably you'll have to buy Hellbound to get this EP but it's worth it.I don't know what kind of punk this band play but it's awesome and SO tallented. If you haven't heard this band buy this EP and then the Roll On album which is amazing too.

so basically, everyone here agrees they're not a green day ripoff. that's good.

this band is in no way a green day rip off, however i do hear the green day influence in the music.

How can they be a Green Day rip-off? I have never heard Billy Joe do any guitar solos that could compare in the slightest way to The Living End's guitarist. I'll fucking kill the bastard who crashed into his car.

Ok I dont know if any of you guys have heard this...but Everyone who has heard the living end and wants to put them down, are calling them a green day rip off. What??? ok i admit the 2 bands have a similarity in sound..they both have 3 members and are on the same label. But the living end I think is wayyy more talented than green day..not to put them down because they are great too. Oh yeah did you see their behind the music special on Vh1? I heard sunny day real estate is getting one in sept.

I like this EP...not as good as the S/T album or roll on....but hell, Everything by these guys is good.

I like this band. Their self titled album was great. This one was only okay. I dunno why, I just didn't like it as much. Oh well.

I agree :) amazing band and amazing EP..... Hellbound and It's For Your Own good show the living end at their best....

I saw these guys open up for Green Day last month, and I was amazed. They're easily one of the best bands I've ever seen play. I seriously think that Green Day should be opening for them.
