as a big fan of the band's first Lp, I have been waiting a long time for their second, so I eagerly purchased this EP when I saw that it was available, only to be sorely disappointed. There is not a single song on this EP that touches even the weakest on their debut. The songs seem half-developed, the best (ironically) being the demo that is the second track. The Fall's Mark E. Smith performs guest vocals on two tracks, both of which boast decent riffs but little else. Sadly, based on this EP, I have no intention of buying the new LP.

I was so overjoyed to get this CD as a gift! Finally, a little something to tide us over in the 5 year + period we Elastica fans have had to wait for a new album. I won't tell you this is a must-have, actually I don't listen to this anymore now that I have the import of "The Menace." This is a good album, Elastica still rocks, get it if you're a collector, otherwise buy "The Menace" cause its the album you're looking for to follow up the stellar debut.

No, this is not the glossy, radio-friendly Elastica you know from the first record. Instead, you get Mark E. Smith doing his trademark "Northern white cr@p that talks back" amphetamine howl all over How He Wrote Elastica Man and KB (hmm, what if Justine had replaced Brix in the Fall?). These two tracks alone make this EP worthwhile for Fall fans. Incidentally, MES makes some funny comments about working with Elastica here:pennybroadhurst.c*m/mesinterview.htm

The other standout is Operate, a raw and energetic track. This is what Elastica sounds like with all the polish and artifice stripped away: noisy and intense.

Beyond HHWEM, KB, and Operate, the rest of the EP is taken up by demos. They are interesting if you are a completist or are a fan of the second album. Otherwise, they're not essential.

I thought Elastica had disappeared after their fantastic debut album. To my surprise, I saw this EP in the record store (can't find many of them anymore) years later. I remember thinking there was a mistake in the labeling. This did not sound like Elastica at all to me and there is a picture of a guy playing the guitar. The first song sounds like the B-52s. "Nothing Stays the Same" is catchy and closer to the Elastica I once knew. Although it is somewhat downbeat, it is a great song - the best track on the EP. Most of the stuff on here sounds like studio experiments. This is a interesting 16 minute EP but really nothing like their first album.
