Down still continues to put together amazing music. These guys are like the all star team of heavy metal and their deep, chunky riffs blended with a hard southern rock feel make for some badass music. Can't wait to see them come back to Atlanta!

Bought it as a Christmas present for my future son in law. He was really surprised and likes the music.

Im a pretty big Down fan, and have listened to all of their records, and i can safely say that in my opinion, this is Down's worst release. Im not saying that this EP is bad by any means, it just isn't as good as their previous releases. None of the songs really stand out to me, and are all just ok. The best track on would probably be Misfortune Teller if i had to pick one, but once again, it's nothing THAT great. I think my biggest problem with this EP is that it doesn't really have that signature Down sound to it, especially when it comes to the riffs. It's borderline generic sounding to me. There's supposed to be a another new EP dropping in a couple of months, so i really hope that it is better than this one, and goes back to Down's roots.

Overall, i don't recommend this album to anyone other than die-hard Down fans. If you are new to Down, i HIGHLY recommend checking out NOLA or A Bustle In Your Hedgerow first.

So I've been a huge fan of Down's music since their epic first album NOLA. Their latest EP is not the epic-ness that was NOLA, and I found myself not drawn in on the first few listens. Bust like most all of their albums, Down got better as I submerged into the EP and the songs began to move me not only with the great crunchy riffs, but the lyrics took on a very person meaning. It's been the same with every one of their records for me and why they are my favorite band of the last decade or so. So if this is your first Down experience, give it time, and DEFINITELY check out their earlier offerings. If you're a fan of sludgy Southern-inspired bluesy metal, it should not disappoint.

This album brings all of the things I love about Down to the table. If you like NOLA you will love The Purple EP.

I have loved Down since their first record and they just keep churning out anthems without fail. Always makes me feel better hearing them!
