The EP was first released in Japan, and later released in the United States. The track listing is the same as that for the "Loud Love" single, but with the addition of "Hands All Over", "Heretic" and "Come Together". Allmusic staff writer Greg Prato gave the EP three out of five stars. He said, "The Loudest Love compilation is quite a find for hardcore fans of Soundgarden, but if you're a newcomer, start off with their 1997 best-of collection, A-Sides, or one of their official albums."
Originally from the Deep Six compilation. However, the version on this EP is the re-recorded version from the "Hands All Over" single with Matt Cameron rather than Scott Sundquist on drums, it also appeared on the Pump Up the Volume soundtrack.
