I admit that I wasn't a fan of Sarah Reeves debut album. It sounded ambitious, but the songs were largely forgettable. I'm not sure whether or not Sarah has released any albums since then, but if she has I've remained ignorant to them.

That doesn't mean every track is an instant class, but at least it's never boring to listen to. I'm not sure if any of these songs will wind up on a future album, but if they do then it's going to be a good album. For now though this EP is certainly very enjoyable and it won't cost you a lot of money, so this release is highly recommended for fans.
