4 stars This is a first part to a 2 part E.P. series of unreleased tracks from the "Tightly Unwound" sessions. The first track is a smoother, softer version of the "Tightly Wound" track from the album and it is also edited down one minute shorter than the album track. The parts edited out are mostly instrumental repeats and may not be very noticeable that they are not there. "The West Coast" is a mostly acoustic song, very short and not much of a standout, on the 2nd half you get the nice Pineapple Thief harmonies and then it's over quickly. "February 13" is more of a full band piece at mid-tempo but as the song continues it gets a very tricky beat and a synthesized string section and cool guitar hooks. The tempo and atmosphere of the song is constantly changing, an excellent song that would have been a great standout track on the album. The rhythm/percussion track is very interesting and dynamic. It's almost worth the price of admission on it's own. "Too Far Gone" was previously available as a download only. It is a very dynamic song going from hard driving hooks to more quieter verses, but with a constant rhythm. For a short track, it has a lot going on and a great mix of vocals and instrumental passages. Another great song.

So you get three great songs and an OK song, not bad for an EP of outtakes. A great collectors item, but the music is high quality especially for outtakes. Even for an EP, it's an excellent addition to my collection and nice to play along with part 2 of the series.
