Content[edit]

The EP features 4 songs, all recorded at The Wade Studios by Andrew Wade in Ocala, Florida[6] and were previously released in some form by the band, though not on an album:

  • "Right Where You Want Me to Be" was released as a special stand-alone holiday single for Christmas in 2009.
  • "Since U Been Gone" was released on the 2008 re-release of For Those Who Have Heart (2007).[7]
  • "Another Song About the Weekend" (Acoustic) was released on the special edition of Homesick (2009).[8]
  • "Over My Head (Cable Car)" was released on the Punk Goes Pop 2 (2009) compilation.[9]

Reissues[edit]

The EP, along with For Those Who Have Heart and Homesick, had a reissue on vinyl,[10] in 2011.[11][12] Another vinyl reissue was released, on August 13, 2013, in 3 different colors.[nb 2][16]

Reception[edit]

Thrash Hits reviewer Tom Doyle said that the first track, "Right Where You Want Me to Be", started "things off in pleasant enough fashion" with "its bouncing, super-infectious chorus". [1] Doyle called the band's cover of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" "a pretty sedate plod through a song which wasn’t really that good to begin with", and that their cover of The Fray's "Over My Head (Cable Car)" suited better to the band's style.[1]
