2 stars This could have been so much better.The opening and closing tracks are very good songs but the three in between really bring this EP down to where I can't even recommend it.

"Housewives Hooked On Heroin" opens with vocals as the sound slowly builds. It kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes then settles back as this contrast continues. Some guitar 3 1/2 minutes in. Great lyrics on this one. "Hit The Ceiling" is an uptempo song with a heavy beat throughout. Female vocal melodies come and go. "Housewives Hooked On Methadane (Scannes Mix)" is like a dance mix of the title track and is a failure in my opinion. "Urban Disco" continues the dance beat, it gets a little heavier 2 1/2 minutes in. "Where I'm Calling From" features Robert Fripp doing soundscapes and Ian Carr playing trumpet. Two freaking legends right there folks. This is a fantastic song and it almost makes me forget the previous three tracks.

Fans only for this EP.
