Critical reaction[edit]

Jason Bracelin, writing in the Las Vegas Review Journal, described the EP by stating "Upon taking in this bunch's new EP you get the sense that they could probably turn the recitation of the ingredients to a bottle of Prell into an arms-in-the-air anthem. With outsized synth lines, ringing, perpetually cresting guitars and massive syncopated beats and cymbal splashes, Imagine Dragons don't make any bones about believing that bigger is always better... it'll only be a matter of time before a song like "Curse" is all over the radio."[6]
