Great for 1st Time Listeners, Veterans Alike

Some admissions: 1. this was the EP that introduced me to Rogue Wave via some random iMix (I owe so much to the creator) and 2. It took me way too long to realize that "Seconds" was a U2 cover.
Coming off of listening to The Shins and Nada Surf, Rogue Wave secures a nice place on the shelf between the two. These reissues from Out of the Shadow shine through as cleaner, deeper, and even better than their predecessors, especially "Falcon Settles Me". Though there is more instrumentation, probably thanks to the addition of Evan, Patrick, and Gram (who were missing from the first album), the vocals somehow shine out stronger than before. The newly added band makes these already great songs even better. As for the U2 cover, take it as a sign from my ignorance that I thought it was their song. Their take on the U2 classic fits perfectly with Rogue Wave's signature sound, without (in my own opinion) disgracing the original.
I love this EP because it's a perfect segway between their two albums, Out of the Shadow and Descended From Vultures. The band has progessed so much with their sound and these tracks are perfect examples of their talent.

I LOVE it. I love love love it. I entirely love it!

What a total surprise.
I love all these songs in their original forms and I love them a million times more in these reconceived arrangements. Totally sweet. Totally catchy. I was addicted to this EP for a long time. Great U2 cover too! OMG.

Rogue Wave

I just discovered these guys in Jan 2006 and think they write extremely well crafted songs.
Thanks guys. Rogue Wave hails from the Bay Area, so for me they are a local band which is another plus in my book. And I would love to dee them perform live. By the way, the drummer needs a kidney transplant, and as soon as I get more cash I will buy more Rogue Wave.
