Import singles are all about the b-sides. Why else would we pay out so much for a song that we could get on an album for about the same price. Anyway, STRAIGHT JACKET is a cool rocking song, highly recommended. What's labeled here, and on the cover as SMOKE & MIRRORS may or may not be Smoke & mirrors. It has come to my attention that the first pressing contained a mistake and had a demo version of BLISSFUL QUEEN in there instead, But was corrected in the second pressing. It's a crap shoot which one you will get. Anyway Blissful Queen is Simplistic but fun. Smoke and Mirrors is ok but they've done better. THE LIGHT BEHIND YOUR EYES is a good ballad, not great but good. THE SAME PERSON remix is an extended version of what appeared on the album. It still sounds like an introduction to another song, just 4 minutes long this time. Still, you have several choice tracks to add to the collection especially if you get the first pressing. You might end up with a collectors item. Buy it while it's still available.

HUGE Veruca Salt fan! There is some really good material on this album, and I love Louise Post. However, Veruca Salt fans will immediately notice the absence of Nina Gordon from this lineup.

This CD isn't Veruca Salts best EP album all put together as one, but it has some of the bands best songs ever. "officially Dead" is a reminder of what we were left with, with 2000's "RESOLVER". Straightjacket is a fast paced, easy to learn the words to and fun to sing along to rollick. "Blissfull queen" is toned down a bit from the previous but speeds up soon after it's eerie introduction and maked for a beautiful and memorable track. "the light behind your eyes" is a pretty song with very thin instrumentation. Louise's voice sounds very whispery in this song. And the final track "the same person" which is a remix of a song on the "resolver" cd is a slow and drawn out dreamlike gem that will easily put any drowsy listener to sleep in no time. This CD is worth the money if you are a true VS fan. If you can't wait for their new CD and you want to hear there new sound this Cd is for you.

After suffering a horrible break-up with musical partner Nina Gordon(and reportedly with her boyfriend as well), Louise Post rises from the ashes with this single from the incredible "Resolver" CD. 'The Same Person' is an eerie demo(the studio version is equally good, if brief); 'Straight Jacket' is a lot of fun(Louise still has her sense of humor); 'Smoke & Mirrors' is a pithy look at the high life. Great stuff.

I think that this CD wasnt the BEST from them. But out of all the Cd's i highly sujest "Volcano Girls". Its a clasic rock song!
