Product Description

Amazon.com

After touring together and courting similar pop-punk fans, Alkaline Trio and Hot Water Music decided to pool forces for this seven-song EP of original material and covers. Alkaline Trio's new material is true to their current form; the emotional, tripping-over-my-broken-heart stories are about girls and boys getting kicked in the head by their relationships. Ironically, the best song they offer on this disc is "Rooftops," a song taken from Hot Water Music's 1999 album No Division. The song is a nice change of pace from the Trio's usual midtempo trot through their angst-ridden world. HWM takes over for the second half of the disc, offering two original tracks and covering two of the Trio's songs--"Radio" from Maybe I'll Catch Fire and the aptly named "Bleeder" from Alkaline Trio. Although the differences between the two bands sound slight at first, HWM's material feels more urgently driven by the end, mainly because of the sandpapery vocals and more forceful guitar work. Overall, this split EP doesn't break any new ground musically, but it's a decent item for the avid fans of either band. --Jennifer Maerz

Everything else of their's on here is amazing like always. note: While Youre Waiting.

Both of these bands illustrate the reason they are both are regarded so highly in the indie music scene.

A great song (one of the two great songs from 'maybe I'll catch fire') and a great cover.

And no more- this is a bit pricey unless you get it used- I'd never shell out a ten-note for five damn songs. then again...
Furs of all (for the completely uninitiated)- Amazon has flubbed the track listing: the first three are played by Alk3, the final four by HWM. And they're not all covers. Only tracks 3, 6 and 7.
Soooo... Queen of pain- easily the best (in one man's opinion), and one of the most-humable tunes Skiba and Co. have crafted. EVER. The chorus will sit in your skull like toxoplasma and not be unrooted...
While you're waiting- Very tight, another good alk3 song. Not as good as Q O P, but still melodic in a way that few of the post-punk set manage. The guy has a great voice and (a quality much lacking in our generation of mush-mouthed frontmen) fine diction. You don't need a lyric sheet for a Alk3 album.
Rooftops- This is my one concession to Alk3- They tear this song up, whereas, originally, HWM play it maybe half as fast (track 8 on No division). I love it. Classic. Also a departure, i feel for Alk3, who usually stick to their lovelorn guns when it comes to lyrical content.
God Deciding- One of my top five HWM songs- this one just floors me every time. HWM fans should be this for this and 'radio,' alone- also, no other HWM song sounds like this one. It is a strange and lonely freak, albeit a fantastic one as far as their clooective discography goes... The vocal call/response/harmonizing chorus is lovely. Short but to the point (and on a mix CD it segues nicely into Where We Belong from Moonpies for Misfits, another fave of mine)
Russian Roulette- I really don't like this song and wonder at its presence, nay- at its very existence every time I'm forced to skip it.
radio- fan-tastic. i don't get some of the Alk3 fans who take umbrage at this cover.

i have been a long time fan of alkaline trio ever since i heard their song 'bleeder' and matt skiba's beautifully melancholly lyrics stayed in my head for weeks until i actually bought their CD. so i was curious to see what this e.p. would be like, i had heard a few songs by HWM and was curious to hear the covers of each other's material...
at first i was blown away by the alkaline material, skiba and company are at their best... again the lyrics are inspired and original ('you've been know to say you are a.o.k. when you are feeling dead inside, i just want you to know i got no place to go until the day you die...') and the music, though lacking in the complexity HWM bring to the fold, fits the mood of the songs... and they even seem to surpass HWM in their cover of 'rooftops'.
at first hot water music's addition to the ep was slightly disappointing, but after a while, the words stuck in my head were not skiba's, but rather hot water material... i was really disappointed at first by the cover of 'bleeder', which is my favorite A3 song, but now i really like it. it's very original, instead of trying to sound like A3, hot water music took their own edge into the song, and it is a great song, but it needs time to grow on you.
find some mp3's from this ep and check out the stuff yourself, and don't be set back by first impressions... the best albums are the ones that aren't initially cohesive, they are the ones which challenge you.

This record has some of the best Alkaline Trio stuff to date in my opinion. The first two tracks are new and unreleased, and sound similar to their latest release on Vagrant records, "From Here To Infirmary". Their third track is an excellent cover of Hot Water Music's "Rooftops", from their Some Records release titled "No Division".
As for Hot Water Music, they cover Alkaline Trio's "Bleeder" from their Asian Man Records release, "I lied my face off" CDEP, as well as "Radio" from another Asian Man Full Length release "Maybe I'll Catch Fire". Of their two previously unreleased tracks, "God Deciding" is pretty much one of the best hot water songs I have heard, but the other song, "Russian Roulette" in my opinion was a little weak.
Overall, this record was great and I am looking forward to others in the Jade Tree split series.

I'll admit that I'm not a fan of Alkaline Trio. That's not to say that I dislike them - they have some catchy songs, and I've seen them live. I wouldn't trash them, they just don't make my list of top artists. On the other hand, I'm a big fan of Hot Water Music. With this on the table, let me say that I was really pleasantly surprised by this split. Both bands put out great efforts which produce a split that's good not just for diehard fans, but for casual listening.

"Queen of Pain" the lead track from Alkaline Trio is perhaps the perfect song to start the split with. With the combination of the guitar and drums that starts out the song, it's hard not to want to bounce along. Add to this the catchy vocals that you can sing along to and you've got a near perfect pop song. Unfortunately, like most good pop songs this one is going to stick around in your head for awhile. I found myself singing this chorus of this song to myself for days after my first listen. Perhaps this start is too strong though because after it, the next track, a more traditional Alkaline Trio mid-tempo song, seems like a disappointment. Although, the pace does pick up a bit with their interesting take on Hot Water Music's "Rooftops."

The second highlight of the split comes during the Hot Water Music half with their cover of Alkaline Trio's "Radio." For those familiar with the original version of the song, the Hot Water Music doesn't stray that far from the original. While keeping this fidelity to the original, through the drastically different vocals, Hot Water Music is able to make the song their own. The song becomes fused with a combination of anger and angst.
