I purchased this album through Amazon.com for under 4 bucks ($3.61) for 5 songs. And I have to say it was $4.00 well spent! There are two songs that are on the previous album "Light Me Up" but these versions are LIVE! I'm not usually one for live recordings, sometimes the crowd screaming gets in my way, but it was dimmed down in these recordings.

There are three new songs, and they are fantastic! I've been a Pretty Reckless fan since I first heard Just Tonight, when I recieved the single as a free download on iTunes. These new songs do not disappoint. They are hard edges, guitar riffs and Taylor's voice at the forefront. This is Rock n' Roll!

I have to take a moment to talk about Taylor Momsens voice. I'm a voice girl, I love or hate voices and in this case I love! I just don't understand how someone so young can put so much into their voice. If you didn't know who was singing, you would never guess that the person behind this soulful emotion filled voice was under 18 or maybe she is now just barely 18. Her voice sounds as though she has lived a 100 years and not all of them good. She just gets it right, and you feel what she feels as she is singing. When she hits certain parts of songs, I'll even get chills on occasion.

There are so many young starlets singing now days it becomes hard to distinguish between all the teeny bopper voices and cookie cutter songs, this is not the case with actress turned musician Taylor. This is one of the rare cases where I feel like an actor turned musician actually works. I think the only other instance I can think of where the actor turned musician makes you forget that they even acted is Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars. These two would probably tell you that music was in their blood before acting was even a thought.
Rating: BUY IT!

I didn't think they could top themselves after Light Me Up simply because of Make Me Wanna Die, Zombie and Miss Nothing. But this has them bringing a bit more mature sound to mix. Taylor's voice has always veered on the bluesy side to me and she lets you know it with these songs. Much smoother sound and feel. I'm really loving Under The Water but all the songs are so great. It's good to see the band evolving and hope to see much more from them in the future.

I have loved The Pretty Reckless from the beginning, having bought the Light Me Up album aswell as the EP. I bought this with no hesitation. It's in the air, theres a new album coming and darn right im ready,

Make Me Wanna Die (Live):
This goes to show how lively and fun the band is live. I really enjoyed it and it was very good. They are just as good live as they are in the studio. 9/10

Hit Me Like A Man:
Great new material from the band, I loved it!. It makes me anxious and excited for the new album, complete perfection. Her vocals are sexy and fun, with band playing rough and . 10/10

Under The Water:
Great, slowed down song. Another great example of new Pretty Reckless material, again Taylor blows me away with her vocals and the backing band is amazing as always. 10/10

Since Your Gone (Live):
Just like the other like set on the EP, really great and a awesome overall song. Almost better than the album studio version. Great! 9/10

Cold Blooded:
So here we come to another new song. I can't really put my finger on it but i think Cold Blooded, is one that I don't like. I mean its not bad. But sometimes catchiness isn't good and this may be a prime example. Like i said it's not bad but it's not phenomenal. 8/10

Overall, i think The Pretty Reckless pleasantly surprised us with this new release. Very good and recommended if you are a really big fan. If your not then you can just wait for the album. 9/10

This band proves once again that a female singer can do rock, metal to perfection. The lead singer Taylor Momsen has some major singing vocals on her lungs, she in my viewpoint can rank up there with pass female singers like Pat B, Joan Jett, S Nicks, Shriely Manson of Garbage and but of course bands like Halestorm with Lizzy Halestorm and In this Moment. What I am trying to say is this woman rocks the metal rock world and I enjoyed every single song on this CD single EP which for people out there who might buy this EP it has 5 songs on it and is roughly 20 minutes long. I am very impress with this singer and looking forward to recieve the next amazon package which contains their second CD entitled Going to Hell. I truly believe this band will be around for a long time to come.

This EP has a few really good songs on it, the best of which is the title track Hit Me Like a Man. Unfortunately, for as good as Hit Me Like a Man is, Under the Water is equally as bad. It is like they stole a crappy ballad from an 80's hair metal band and resurrected it.

But don't let that one bad song ruin an otherwise enjoyable EP. The singer is sexy and tough at the same time and has great pipes and inflection in her singing, and when the band is rocking the songs have the riffs and the hooks of a great Clutch song. This EP left a nice impression and I look forward to checking out the rest of their catalog.
