2 stars This is a 4-song EP by the trip--hop group Archive. It was released to promote the song "The Absurd" from the album "You All Look the Same to Me". The album is one of the band's best and is definitely worth checking out. This EP however, is rather hard to find, and the best song on it is the title song, which is on the full album. The other songs on this EP are "Junkie Shuffle" which is a 10 minute song. Even with that amount of time, the song really doesn't develop much and even gets boring by the end. Next up is "Sham" which is not on the regular album, and it is a little better, but Archive has much better material than this on the album. The lost track is "Men Like You" which is the same track that is on the regular album, and it is probably one of the weaker tracks on it. So nothing here really is worth the trouble, time or money if you are lucky enough to find it, unless you are a collector. The songs, except for the title track are all mediocre at best and I guess that is why the exclusive tracks were left off the album. Look for any of their other albums because the band is great, but these songs lack substance.
