3 stars I might be overrating this. Hollow Years is an average song, a good ballad, but not what DT are known for. You Or Me seems to be a better song before Desmond Child got his hands on it.

However, the real treat in this single is the previously-unreleased "The Way It Used To Be", a proggy song with U2 roots. That alone is worth the price, other tracks be-damned. If this EP consisted of the other FII B-sides, it would be a solid 4 stars (for a B-sides collection, of course).

To review this album only because of the title song would be foolish... who buys singles for an album track? It's all about the B-sides. ;)
