Small Brown Bike is amazing. This CD is definitely not their best, but I like it a lot better than "The River Bed." I don't reccomend this CD as a starting point to get into Small Brown Bike. Pick up "Dead Reckoning" or "Our Own Wars" before this. I am a huge fan of Small Brown Bike, so I can't really give this CD less than a 3, but it's a lot different than their two previous releases. It isn't as dark and angry as "Dead Reckoning" and it's not as raw and energetic as "Our Own Wars", but it definitely has a place with those two albums. My favorite track is "Trains All Talk."

Although this release is not as hard as the two records that can before it (Our Own Wars/Dead Reckoning), it is more rockin' then anything off of The River Bend. First song is amazing and the rest of the album keeps rockin. Hard to find cd nowadays, but well worth the price.

This EP really gets to me. There is a flawed, raw emotion to it that is just brilliant. I first heard SBB a couple of years back when I bought 'Dead Reckoning' under recommendation - I thought that was excellent, with it's overly-heavy guitar sound and shouty/singy vocals, personal and sensitive subjecy matter, and dirty-sounding production. This EP shows a step forward for the band, as the production is neater, the vocals are stronger and more mature, and the subject matter is common ground for all.

First song, Trains All Talk, has a chorus which goes 'You say it's always this way, we can help our fears be faced. You say it's always your face, it reminds me of my hate'. The song seems to be about acceptance and knowing full-well what someone is about, and it's this kind of human recognition that fearures in the rest of the tracks. A lot of hardcore/punk/etc is about an angry attack on the world, an us vs. them approach to everything. However, I have always thought that the best bands have much more of an introspective, what can we change about ourselves approach - bands like Hot Water Music, Grade or Sick Of It All. There are moments of rebellion here, but wrapped-up in self-ananlysis and attempting to understand the human mind.

The sound of this recording is amazing as well. The reverb on the guitars gives the band a monumental feel, with swaying riffs that are heavy but friendly, if that makes sense. Fourth song, So I Fall, is a delicate acoustic track, discussing the wearing-down effects of staying in one mindset, in one place, and with just yourself for company. Final track, A Table For Four, is a heartfelt cry for solidarity, family, friendship. Considering the band had two brothers in it, this song is very potent. Brilliant. I can't recommend this EP highly enough, but I also recommend Dead Reckoning (their second album) as well.

as much as i love small brown bike i can only give this cd 3 stars. the reason, it lacks the intensity of the past records and sounds as if the band is shifting gears into a new genre. buy this cd if you love small brown bike but dont buy it if you are just getting into them. musically this is one of the best bands you can listen to.

small brown bike owns, but this ep is just ok. there are some good songs on it(3/5 is not bad), but i don't play it that much. it's no where near as good as "dead reconking" but it shows promise. mike vocals are a little cleaner and ben's screams are recorded louder. the music is cool, but it's not that heavy. think maybe the casket lottery or the heaviest moments on the last two engine down records. i'd buy this though. i can't deny the bike. just don't get your hopes up too high. i hope their full length is heavier.

I had heard Small Brown Bikes name all over the place and thought I'd might as well check em out. Not bad, but not too good either. They remind me of Sparta meets Hot Water Music, meets straight up slow rock. The songs are good, but just kind of drag along with not much exitement. However, I am really into So I Fall (track 4), It sounds like a slow, sad, country song without a punk/emo singer. It's really cool. Other than that I wouldn't bother too much about this.
